I love a good chai. Seriously, I am kindof a chai fanatic. This is precisely why I was thrilled when I was contacted by Bhakti Chai and asked if I would be willing to do a product review. Heck yes.
For me, a good chai is all about the spice. If you live in Seattle, you’re usually asked the question: Oregon Chai (sweet) or Morning Glory (spicy)? I’m a Morning Glory gal. Well, until recently when I was completely won over by Bhakti Chai.
When I read more about their company, I was really impressed to learn that Bhakti Chai is micro-brewed in Boulder, Colorado using Fair Trade and organic ingredients. Besides focusing on sustainable practices (like zero waste manufacturing!), they are committed to social action and support a variety of nonprofits that benefit women and girls. If you know me, this is a huge passion and focus of mine as well.
All of their chai includes fresh-pressed ginger, fresh-ground cardamom, and is brewed with black tea from the Assam region of India. It is also gluten-free, vegan, and does not contain preservatives. Bhakti Chai has four varieties: Original, Decaf, Coffee Blend, and Semi Sweet (low sugar). Since my local Whole Foods didn’t have the Semi Sweet in stock, I opted for the Decaf (green bottle pictured above).
What I love about this chai is that it has a good spicy kick and it’s not too sweet. But, the best part? I could taste fresh ginger in every sip. Coming from someone who makes fresh juices with ginger daily, this is quite the compliment. Although I’m not usually a fan of soy milk, their organic non-GMO soy base was irresistibly creamy and I loved it combined with the spiciness from the fresh ginger and cardamom.
Over all I can honestly say that this chai knocked my socks off. And, it knocked my socks off so badly that I want to share it with you. Bhakti Chai was kind enough to offer 5 readers a chance to try this chai for yourself and I can’t wait to hear what you think!
Since the chai is fresh they can’t ship the actual bottles, but Bhakti Chai will be sending 5 lucky readers coupons to try it for free at a store near you! Since Bhakti Chai is a small company and is only available in the US at this time, this giveaway is limited to US residents only. (Sorry to all my international readers!)
