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 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.

Meyer Lemon Cookie Thins: Dainty, but strong

14 Jan

I was invited to lunch and tea today with my friends Kem, Madalene and Amanda. It was a lovely three hours of delicious food and conversation. The lunch had a smooth cross dissolve into tea and cookies. The tea was wonderful – Benner Green Tea with orange, passion fruit and jasmine.

The cookies were Trader Joe’s Cookie Thins.

You’ll notice that the box contains only one stack of cookies. That’s because we ate the other at lunch.

They’re dainty lemon crisps with a flavor that you can’t mistake. I’ve tried other lemon cookies where the taste was too subtle. The lemon was more of a suggestion than an actual main ingredient. With this cookie, the lemon inside is clear.

Madalene had an idea: Honey and lemon are a tasty combo, so why not squeeze a little honey on the thins? Which she did, then we did, and then we ended up making lemon cookie and honey sandwiches.

Highly recommended.

Thank you, Kem, Madalene and Amanda!

Thank you, Trader Joe’s.
