What's in your little Chai-pot?! Review of Oregon Chai ( + Giveaway, 3 winners)

Did I ever tell you how much I love tea? There's nothing like snuggling up on the couch with a nice hot cup of tea! So comforting. I don't know if you have tried the Indian version of tea. It is usually tea with milk and you can add different aromatic spices to it and give it a nice flavor that you will remember and relish.

Chai has a history that is over 5000 years old! Some stories say that it was invented by a royal king in the ancient courts of India.The word “chai” and it’s variations are used throughout South Asia and the Middle East. It may have been derived from the Chinese word for tea, cha.

Orgegon Chai was founded after the founder tasted some yummy spiced tea..guess where? At the Himalayas! It gets terribly cold where I live and I can only imagine how awesome it must be to drink  spiced tea in the cold mountains of Himalayas. The founder returned home and worked on creating the perfect blend of tea and spices.Before long, traditional chai's American cousin, Oregon Chai, was born. 


 I was truly expecting some tea bags as that's what I am used to.But when I received it, it was a Chai Tea Latte Concentrate. It is a mixture of tea, spices and sweetness. It can be poured over ice and enjoyed chilled. I had mine mixed with equal parts of milk and concentrate and warmed it on the stove-top. This is the best way to enjoy a hot cup of tea in winter!

 Oregon Chai's 32-oz. concentrates are over 90% organic—it has the USDA Organic seal. The one concentrate that's not organic and all-natural is our Sugar-Free Original. It's made with Splenda, that's actually a good thing for people with diabetes, carb counters and anyone looking to remove sugar from their diet. 

I totally loved the taste and the sweetness though hubby found it a little too sweet. But it can be adjusted by adding more milk. It's something I would love to have every morning. The spice is kind of addictive and leaves me wanting for another cup.

So, what's brewing in your Chai-pot?

You can buy this 32 oz Chai Latte Concentrate from Oregon Chai for $5.49.

Thanks to Oregon Chai, 3 lucky readers will have the chance to win a 32 oz Oregon Chai Original Chai Tea Latte Concentrate.
