Put A Lid On It

When I worked, I used to stop at Dunkin Donuts and treat myself to a Vanilla Chai...not every day, mind you, but once or twice a week.  There's nothing like a hot cup of Vanilla Chai...so rich and creamy...yummmm!

However, now that I no longer work, circumstances called for drastic measures.  After working diligently on the precise combination, I thought that I could concoct the same treat for myself using Bigelow Spiced Chai Tea, honey and International Delight's French Vanilla creamer.  But wait, the taste was not quite right...it just wasn't strong enough which told my logical mind that it just wasn't staying hot enough.

It seemed that the tea just wouldn't "steep" in a regular coffee mug because of the openeess.  So, when I was out and about and saw this "coffee cup" I thought that putting the lid on it would let the tea bag sit long enough without letting it get cold...creating perfection!

Yep!  It worked...:)

Oh, that's cool! I buy the Bolthouse Vanilla Chai (available at COSTCO and WINCO and Vons). It has lots of protein and vitamins, but is pricey! Glad you found a homemade solution! I drink the French vanilla creamer, too!
Sounds like a great treat!

Sounds yummy. A couple weeks ago I was in Wal-mart and picked up a box of chai tea when I got it home I realized it was vanilla chai. The brand I bought was Bigelow
