Oprah Chai From Teavana

A great distraction from coffee—and that dreaded PM caffeine crash, tea makes a great beverage alternative for the holiday season.

This new brand of Chai tea from Oprah Winfrey is made from cinnamon, ginger, cardamon and loose-leaf black tea and rooibos and retails for $14.98 at Teavana (also sold at Starbucks stores).

The proper way of serving tea is to use a tea strainer to brew your tea. Then, fill your cup with hot water.

Next, take a tablespoon of your Oprah Chai Original and place it into the opening of your tea strainer.

The instructions call for 1-2 Tablespoons of Oprah Chai Original, but I’ve found that one Tablespoon is pretty much all you need given the Oprah Chai Tea is strong enough on it’s own.

For every two ounces of Oprah Chai sold, Teavana will donate $1.00 to the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Foundation which supports educational opportunities for young people.

Now, you just want to keep your tea strainer in your cup of hot water and let it brew.The hardest part about this is not drinking the tea right away before it’s finished brewing because it smells so good.

But you want to wait about 5-8 minutes because it needs to brew thoroughly or your cup of tea will just taste like a cup of boiled water. I speak from experience on that; I’m not the most patient person…

Okay, it’s been about 5-8 minutes and your Oprah Chai Original has brewed. I like to serve a Chai Tea unsweetened because the Oprah Chai is pretty much strong and potent enough on it’s own. I do love the idea of a pastry to go with this like perhaps a scone, or biscuit of some sort.
