It's still officially summer, yet it certainly doesn't feel that way. The autumn has really arrived here in the Netherlands and there ain't no stopping it now! Rain, heavy gray skies, cold winds -- the works. A perfect occasion for this tea junkie to check out a new tea!
While I love green tea and drink it by the bucketfuls, I'm also rather partial to herbal teas (mint, nettle, chamomile and verbena are my favorites), and to sweet and spicy chais.
I was rather excited when I spotted this soluble chai at the tea section of my supermarket. It is a product made by Zonnatura: a Dutch company that produces earth-friendly, healthy, organic products. I'm a big fan of their carrot juice, nettle tea and muesli cereals.
The first thing I noticed when I opened the container was the warming aroma of the tea. Lovely!
I made mine with mostly hot water and a little bit of rice milk. Perhaps I might increase the amount of rice milk next time and try it as a bedtime drink.
