Nourishing Bites: Oregon Chai

Inspired by the lovely Kirsten of A Karma Project, who recently posted some of the foods she can't live without, I've decided to share a few of my favorite go-to foods with you, my dear readers.  I'll be sharing one food item each day this week, with a focus on foods that are healthful yet convenient.  While I love making meals from scratch - and do so quite often - I also appreciate the time and effort I save by using pre-packaged options (especially when packaged minimally or in environmentally friendly ways).     

Oregon Chai
Today's Nourishing Bite is actually more of a nourishing sip.  I discovered Oregon Chai Chai Tea Concentrates several years ago.  As a Chai lover, I have sampled various versions of this yummy Indian-spiced beverage.  While Teaism's Chai remains my all-time favorite, it's not always possible to drop by my favorite tea house, especially now that I live further away.  When I can't get to Teaism and don't have time to create my own version at home, I reach for Oregon Chai's boxed concentrates.  These days, I prefer the Slightly Sweet version, which, compared to the Original, has just a teeny bit of sugar.  Mixed with almond milk and poured over ice, it's sweet, spicy, creamy and delicious.  In cooler months, I heat it in the microwave for a warm and comforting treat.  Oregon Chai also offers vegan, sugar-free, and caffeine-free versions of its concentrate.
Have you tried Oregon Chai?  I'd love to hear your thoughts!

I've only tried a couple of chai concentrates, but they've always been disappointing. I'm definitely going to have to try this one out! Thanks xoxo

So, this is going to sound weird to everybody but I've never had chai (beyond the tea bags of chai). I even used to work at Starbucks! I'm definitely going to have to seek this out!

Kirsten, I don't think that's weird - don't worry! :-) Let me know if you try it out, and what you think of it.

My favourite chai that I can get over here is Twinings...all the others I've tried have been a bit flat. However, today I discovered Bengal Spice and although I don't think that's a chai per se, my god it titilated the tastebuds the way a good chai should.

Great idea to share your favourite foods, looking forward to seeing what's next :)

i love this chai. I do try to make it less sweet than the instructions say. I have not seen the lighter versions you mentions, will have to keep an eye out.
