Some time back, amd43 suggested a vanilla chai, and while it might have taken us a little while, we did get to it. Here is our delicious masala chai blended with real vanilla bean pieces and a touch of vanilla flavoring.
Tea Tip of the Week
The word chai, though associated with heavily spiced teas such as our masala chai or this week’s Vanilla Bean Chai, actually means “tea” in many eastern languages. It just so happens that in those regions tea is generally prepared with a number of spices and generally milk and sugar. Saying “Chai tea” is redundant and should be avoided.
If you are digging the art on this week’s label, you can thank Amy Davis of radianceart.com (@melusian on Twitter). Amy gets a free pouch of our Vanilla Bean Chai for submitting the image we used for our label. If you want to win a free pouch for yourself, stay tuned to our contest page to see what the theme for next week will be.
I love your chais, and have had this doodle floating around my head for a while, so here you go! Since the word ‘chai’ means tea in India, and they are known for their masala chai, I used Indian paisley and mandala motifs in my watercolor design, with a ‘vanilla’ blue background. Hope you like it!
