Oregon Chai Tea Latte Concentrates Have Arrived!

By Steven Ziegler

We’ve been bringing in many new coffee and tea realated items lately; but to me, the big news is: We now stock Oregon Chai! I love chai and I am really glad that we brought it in, and have it at a great price. You see, once I tried to make chai for a family gathering. I bought all the best ingredients that I could find, buying a bunch of spices that I have barely used since. But you know what? The end result didn’t taste as good as the Oregon Chai latte concentrates. There is an obvious reason that Oregon Chai is the most well known chai out there--it tastes great! And Oregon Chai concentrates are much less work! Simply add equal parts of milk or soy milk to the chai concentrate, heat or ice, and serve. Chai is meant to be relaxing, so why not keep the preperation as simple as possible? We have Original Chai Tea Latte, Sugar-Free Chai Tea Latte, and Vanilla Chai Tea Latte flavors.

Now, if you feel the need to express yourself through your chai, here are a couple recipes, adapted from Oregon Chai’s own recipe page:

Almond Mocha Chai--16oz

6oz OriginalChai Tea Latte Concentrate
6oz Milk
2oz U-Bet Chocolate Syrup
2oz Dolce Almond Syrup
Dash
Cinnamon

Directions: Mix together Original Chai concentrate, milk, chocolate syrup and almond and heat with steaming want, microwave or stovetop to 150*. Spoon foam over the top and sprinkle with cinnamon.

Long Island Iced Chai

1/2 oz. Rum
1/2 oz. Vodka
1/2 oz. Triple sec
1/2 oz. Gin
2 oz Original Chai Tea Latte Concentrate
1/2 oz. Lemon Juice
3 oz. Orange Juice

Directions: Mix above ingredients in a high ball glass over ice. Garnish with a slice of lemon or orange or a sprig of mint.

Now that you’ve seen some recipes, it is time for me to catch up with the rest of the writers here and delight/annoy you with some cheesy poetry of my own. I thought I could top everyone else by not just creating new poetry, but a new poetry form. So here, for your literary pleasure, are a couple examples of a new poetic form that I call, "Chaiku":,

If Wallace Stevens Drank Chai

Only whiteness seen,
My mind may be of Winter
But hot chai melts me.

The Price of Comfort

Head hung-a day’s stress
Breathe spice-in-steam fantasy
Three eighty-nine dream

    Noblest thou Chai
    Though lowly, I beseech thee,
    Warm yon Winter's sting.
