Review & Giveaway: Tipu's Chai

Okay, let's just cut to the chase. Everyone here knows how much I love, and am extremely picky about, chai tea. {If you have any doubts, please refer to the title of this blog.}

While I enjoy a few commercially prepared chai latte mixes, they're all laden with milk derivatives, tons of sugar, and a few barely pronounceable ingredients--the former being a sworn enemy of my digestive system {Thank you, lactose intolerance}. I'm not too keen on the chemicals either, but the sugar I consider a necessary ingredient. {Just not to the same degree as the manufacturer.}

So because of my--and my tummy's--pickiness, it's difficult for me to find a good quality chai latte mix that I can get along with.

That is, until I tried Tipu's Instant Black Chai. {Insert "Hallelujah" chorus here}

Tipu's Instant Black Chai is an authentic Indian chai tea that delivers a truly delicious, spicy, peppery kick! This prized family recipe has been handed down through three generations and has traveled across three continents before making it into my cute little Princess mug. :o) 

As I drank my first cup of my newfound "liquid heaven", I was highly impressed by its intoxicating aroma and the fact that Tipu's is the only instant chai made without chemical additives. {Something I obviously cannot say about my current favorites. *Ahem*} In addition, Tipu's Instant Black Chai is designed to be mixed with whatever milk or milk substitute you choose {like vanilla almond milk}, and sweetened according to personal taste. This allows you to make your perfect cup of chai, every time! How cool is that?!

Additional facts:

  • Tipu's Chai is 95% soluable, meaning there's just a little bit of its flavorful awesomeness left at the bottom of your cup, which I was surprised to learn, is the "mark" of real chai.
  • Made without chemicals, preservatives, milk products or sweeteners. {Woohoo!}
  • Organic tea and non-irradiated spices {Awesome!}
  • Gluten-free
  • Vegan
As you can probably tell, I really -- and I mean really -- like this chai! In fact, I like it soooo much, that I'm willing to share. {In a manner of speaking that is! *Hee hee*}

The kind folks at Tipu's Chai are generously awarding ONE of my fabulous blog readers their very own 4 oz. bag of their Instant Black Chai! Woohooo!!! {Insert showers of confetti and balloons here}
