Third Street Chai was kind enough to send me a variety of samples of their products to review.
The samples included:
- Ginger Lemonade
- Authentic Chai
- Spicy Ginger Chai
- Pomegranate Green Tea
- Peach Black Tea
All of Third Street’s concentrates are lightly sweetened and are easy to prepare; all you need for the chai is some tasty almond milk (or your favorite milk) and for the iced teas and lemonade water! I quickly became obsessed with the ginger lemonade and it was the first to go (and far to quickly I must say). I loved that it wasn’t too sweet like most lemonades and had a nice gingery bite.
As for the chai I have only tried them hot, since it is getting to be winter here, and I enjoyed both of the flavors. Of the two chai’s the Authentic was my favorite and the Spicy Ginger the Hubz favorite. I found the Spicy Ginger a little too peppery for me. To make the chai latte I heated half chai and half almond milk in a pot on the stove and served. I attempted to make a foam with a whisk but failed; I really need an a frother to make some good foam.
Lastly the iced teas- these were my least favorite. I am lover of iced tea but I like mine strong and unsweetened. The fruit plus the added sweetener made these a little too overpowering for me. My dad who tried the peach black tea agreed that it was good but a little too sweet.
Overall my husband and I were huge fans and Neil is now on a search for a 64oz super concentrate so he can have chai lattes all the time (within reason).
