Your Favorite Tea
what drink do you like most have always been pretty fussy about my coffee shop drinks. A lot of people will find something anywhere they go, but not me. On the one hand, I am not a big fan of the traditional cup of Joe. A cup of coffee to me is a little bit too bitter. I need a little bit more mildness and sweetness to the flavor, or I just can not drink it. I tried adding cream and sugar, and it helps a little bit, but it still doesn't taste good to me. On the other hand, the fancy drinks seem a little bit over the top to me. I don't need half a pound of sugar, 3 feet of cream, and a cherry on top. Tea seems a little bland in general, and I don't like drinking fruit juice. About the only thing that I can always decide on is chai tea. I can't get enough of it.
If you have never tried a good cup of chai tea, I can't recommend it enough. Chai teas are some of the most delicious drinks in the world. Basically, it is a regular old black tea jazzed up in the most spicy, fascinating way. There is cardamom, cinnamon, perhaps some ginger, and a bit of black pepper in it. The spices vary, but everywhere it has an interesting, potent, earthy feel to it. After that, you add a little bit of cream and sugar – or soy milk if you prefer – and you're good to go. You don't even need to make it really sweet. The spices themselves are intoxicating enough that you can get by with only a mild hint of sweetness. Such is the nature of chai tea.
I have found that a lot of people who like green tea like chai tea, yet the two are not very similar. Green teas have a strong, grassy taste to them. Although they are strongly flavored, as is chai tea, the type of flavor is much different. They aren't spicy so much as intensely green and flavorful. Another thing to keep in mind is that chai recipes vary a lot from place to place. In some places, the emphasis is on the spice. In others, the emphasis is on the cinnamon and the sweetness. If you don't like it one place, I strongly encourage you to try it again. You might find a different cup to be more to your liking.
