We are starting to wind down our Vegan MoFo prompts, only have a few days left but it sure has been fun to match up tea with our vegan friends at Vegan MoFo. Today’s prompt was a bit harder to match up but I think we did it in a way. Today’s prompt was to recreate your favorite food memory. While there are lots of teas out there that can conjure about memories from our past, today I thought I’d chat about a tea that I’m absolutely going nuts over and have for some time! Let my love for all things #tumeric begin!
I’m going to come right out and say it…I LOVE TURMERIC! So when I heard that Chico Chai had a new product highlighting this incredible ingredient I couldn’t wait to try it! Introducing…Golden Turmeric Loose Leaf Chai from Chico Chai!
Golden Turmeric Loose Leaf Chai from Chico Chai contains rooibos, dried coconut, nutmeg, ginger, orange peel, and cardamom. I was excited to see how this blend of flavors would work with a Rooibos base. As for the aroma upon opening the tin – Golden Turmeric Loose Leaf Chai from Chico Chai smelled like wondrous chai! Sure it was SPICY but there was a hint of sweet from both the rooibos and the coconut AND it was even a bit savory! Perhaps that was because of the turmeric ‘making friends with’ the ginger. But you know what…the orange in this was surprisingly lovely, too, but more of an afterthought.
Golden Turmeric Loose Leaf Chai from Chico Chai was full of surprises! Eventho you could still see that there was turmeric loose and buy itself flowing freely among the dry ingredients you could also tell that it stuck to the coconut really well, too! I can’t say enough about this Golden Turmeric Loose Leaf Chai from Chico Chai!!! I absolutely LOVE it! You have to REALLY like chai and really like turmeric and lucky for me – I do! This is blended so well! I don’t think I would change anything about it! This one will be hard for me to share with others but I want to pass it along to my Sororitea Sisters to see what they think about it, too! Ahhhh…I’m so conflicted! But for good reason…Golden Turmeric Loose Leaf Chai from Chico Chai ROCKS!
