Sweet + Spicy Chai Latte

This post was sponsored by Starbucks as part of an Influencer Activation. I received compensation and complimentary products to facilitate my review.

What's sweet and spicy and easy to make at home? TAZO® Chai Latte. There’s something about the rich, creamy taste that sends you to another place and time. For me, every sip provides a spicy and sweet escape. I love to travel, and the new TAZO® Chai Latte K-Cup® pods allow you to explore a world of flavor from the comfort of your home.

Just the mere aroma of masala spices sets your mind on a trip to an Indian nation. TAZO® Chai Latte K-Cup® pods come in two alluring flavors, Classic and Vanilla Caramel. I personally love the Vanilla Caramel because it really is that perfect Sweet Meets Spicy indulgence. You have the classic chai flavors wrapped in a blanket of sweet vanilla and creamy caramel.

So what is chai latte? Steeped in 5,000 years of Indian history, chai is a black tea blend that’s part sweet, part spicy, and totally unexpected. This beverage is made by brewing black tea with a mixture of aromatic Indian spices and herbs. Originating in India, the beverage has gained worldwide popularity. The latte, of course, means to mix the chai with steamed milk. There you have chai latte.

Thanks to TAZO® Chai Latte K-Cup® pods, chai latte is so easy to enjoy at home! There are two easy steps. First, you pour the sweetened dairy packet into your cup. Then you brew a latte tea blend into the same cup using your Keurig® brewer. Then stir well and enjoy. In just minutes, you have the perfect balance of sweet meets spicy to enjoy in your own home!

Now that you have your Chai Latte, what will you enjoy with it? Tea and chai have always been a part of Padma Lakshmi's life and family heritage and she is excited to celebrate the flavors of chai with TAZO. This is why spokesperson Padma Lakshmi developed recipes that pair perfectly with a cup of chai. You can find them by visiting TAZO.com/chai/pairings

Serve a sweet and spicy chai latte alongside any of Padma’s delicious dishes. The one that looks the most intriguing to me is cinnamon tea cookies. Padma says:

"These simple cookies are easy to make and fun for kids, too! Around my house we always referred to them as tea biscuits, and we dunked them into our strongly brewed, gingery masala chai. They’re thin, crumbly and less sweet than most cookies, which makes them ideal for enjoying with a sweet and spicy chai latte."

So sit back and relax, as your taste buds host you on an imaginary journey through exotic lands of sweet cinnamon, fragrant cardamom, and spicy ginger, leaving you feeling invigorated by the aromatic flavors and ready to travel around the world. The aroma alone is spicy, sweet, and invigorating. The taste is bold, flavorful, and indulgent. The spicy really stands out like a warm hug. Then the sweet compliments the spicy and creates the perfect sip. Find where to buy TAZO® Chai Latte K-Cup® pods at TAZO.com/wheretobuy.
