In Minnesota, I'm absolutely obsessed with the chai lattes at Indigo Tea Garden. They are so perfectly made and creamy. Its the perfect place to grab a cup, a biscotti, and hole up for an hour or two reading a book.
After arriving in NJ, my family and I popped into a Starbucks and I had a mean craving for a chai. Imagine my horror when I sipped theirs: so syrupy and sugary -- yick! I was convinced I would never have a good chai again. (Also, can anyone explain to me why the East Coast is so infatuated with Starbucks? I just can't understand.)
Well, I may have over-reacted. Keith and I stopped into a local coffee shop on our way to Target over the weekend and I gathered the courage to try another. I'm so glad I did! I can't explain it, but a good chai latte makes me feel like home.
