On the trail for chai: Oregon delivers

18 Mar

… Oregon and Trader Joe’s, that is. All you coffee and tea diehards, this chai mix will give you a delicious alternative.

Oregon Chai from Trader Joe's

Oregon Chai runs hot and cold, and they’re both delicious

The box contains a chai concentrate. You mix it with milk or a milk substitute and heat or ice.

Today was really chilly and grey, ending in a “wintry mix” of rain and sleet. I heated up a mug of Oregon Chai and felt all snuggly and warm. One convenience is that you can modify the chai to your taste. If you like your chai sweet, use less milk. If you want it a little less sweet, use less chai and more milk (like I do).

Enjoy!

Thank you, Trader Joe’s.

I’d love to hear what TJ products you can’t live without! Please share your faves in the comments.

Here are 15 of mine that were featured on Things I Love at Trader Joe’s in 2012:

Another cuppa Joe from Trader Joe’s

5 Oct

Thanks once again to a sample at the tasting bar, I’ve added a new coffee to my list of faves from Trader Joe’s.

Dark Sumatra – a tasty brew

Trader Joe’s Dark Sumatra coffee is a delicious roast. The taste is closer to espresso than breakfast blend. Smooth, full of the caffeine we depend on in the morning and packed with the depth of flavor we hope for in every cup of Joe. This is a coffee to keep high on the shopping list!

Thank you, Trader Joe’s!

And thank you for reading and following Things I Love at Trader Joe’s!

What’s your favorite coffee at TJ’s? Have you tried Dark Sumatra? If so, what did you think?
