I love a good chai tea latte. I know it sounds crazy, but my favorite one is served at Panera Bread. It is the Iced Chai Tea Latte. Now that it is fall, I crave this drink more than ever.
It is a creamy blend of two percent milk and chai tea concentrate. The flavor is so spot on and perfect for my tastebuds, that years ago I had to get one daily. The fact that there is no brewing involved and that they just pour the ingredients together is so simple, but results in the most delicious drink.
I found out that they use the Republic of Tea Chai Tea Concentrate to make this concoction. The ingredients include, water, brewed black tea, evaporated cane juice, wildflower honey, vanilla, cinnamon, black pepper, ginger, clove and cardamom. All you need to do to make this blissful beverage is combine one ounce of concentrate to seven ounces of milk or milk alternative. You can serve it hot or cold, but I prefer it iced. The flavors blend so wonderfully together to remind me of the holidays and a lovely fall day.
The shelf life of the concentrate is one year unopened and ninety days after opening in the refrigerator. A sixty-four ounce jug of the concentrate can be purchased online at http://www.republicoftea.com for $46.
