Morning Cup is a new daily segment where I post what I am drinking with a quick image of my beverage and some initial thoughts. This is Morning Cup #9
I mentioned just yesterday how versitile chai happens to be. Sometimes though, it's nice to just go back to the basics. Chai can be enjoyed hot or cold and this Masala style Kama Sutra Chai from Tavalon Tea is no different.
There are many ways to make chai. Even within India itself different regions prepare this classic beverage differently. I have had fantastic coconut and pumpkin spice chai blends. All are twists on the base masala recipe for chai. This Vanilla Bean Chai from 52teas is a nice soothing blend.
Last week, I covered my first day at the 2009 World Tea Expo held in Las Vegas. This week you get to hear about the rest of my trip. I won't name names... but I met some really fantastic people at this year's expo...
