This evening’s burst of energy brought to you by a mid-afternoon jolt of Dirty Chai iced tea.
I tend to get annoyed when I see the same products on blog after blog, for paid sponsorships, and that’s how I’ve started to feel about the Celestial Seasonings Teahouse line of products. However, as of my birthday this past year, I’m a new convert to dirty chai lattes (chai tea latte + a shot of espresso), so while I’ve been annoyed, my sense of curiosity has won out.
I managed to find this box of Dirty Chai at the Target in East Liberty, and I snatched it right up. I’ve had it both hot and iced, and I think I can definitively say that I like it better hot – I feel like I tasted the espresso part more when it was hot. Iced was good too, though, but it got a bit watered down.
Really, though, for a do-it-yourself dirty chai, these bags can’t be beat. Plus, they’re a heck of a lot cheaper than running down to Starbucks – one box of 20 costs less than one drink at the ‘bux. Afternoons just got a bit more wired. 🙂
