There are so many things that happen and come with winter. For me the main thing is getting sick; no matter how hard I try or how well-prepared I think I am, I find myself catching at least one cold at the start of the season. This year was no exception. Not long after the first snow I woke up with a sore throat. It was downhill from there and downhill is not where I want to be!


A sore throat isn’t the worst thing ever, but if you’ve had one you know how yucky it is. The natural act of swallowing becomes a nightmare and finding relief is the main agenda. It is a race to nip it in the bud before the sniffles, coughing, and sneezing start. This year I was ready for that race, armed with a secret weapon: Chai Tea.


Many spices found in Chai teas have medicinal/holistic uses great for combating sore throats and other ailments. Cinnamon and ginger both have antimicrobial properties while nutmeg, star anise, and cardamom play key roles too. Different Chai, different ingredients but the overall concept stays the same. Black tea with a blend of warm spices equals relief from winter turmoil.


Traditional Chai Tea isn’t for everyone. The spices can be a turn-off for someone with a sweet tooth but that doesn’t mean they can’t still enjoy it. In fact, TAZO® has a solution for that. TAZO® Chai Tea is available in several varieties including traditional, Vanilla Caramel, and chocolate. These varieties come in easy to use filter bags making that #SweetMeetsSpicy dream a reality. It gets even better with the TAZO® Chai tea concentrate (you must try the Vanilla Caramel – it’s incredible!
