Get dreamy with a Dreamscape chai latte

Bailey, king of the ice chests
"Chai. It starts with a soft “ch” and rhymes with sigh (of contentment, naturally)." I borrowed this from the Oregon Chai website because the sigh of contentment is exactly what I experience when I sip a cup of chai tea.

No wonder, I couldn't resist purchasing a box of Oregon Chai Dreamscape tea bags. Dreamscape is a blissful blend of organic Rooibos, organic honeybush, ginger root, clove bud, cardamom seed, cassia bark (cinnamon). This caffeine-free blend is perfect for an evening cup of tea or latte. What am I saying? This chai tea is perfect anytime. If you prefer a bit of caffeine, there are the Oregon Chai Original Tea Bags, made with Assam black tea.

Along with its blissful taste, chai tea offers many health benefits. Rooibos and Honeybush are caffeine-free herbal teas grown high in the mountains of South Africa. Like regular tea, rooibos tea contains flavonoids which act as antioxidants. The flavonoids in rooibos can't take on those found in green tea but are pretty close challengers. And if you are avoiding caffeine, rooibos is a great alternative to green tea.

I love foam on my lattes. Here's how you get a super foamy Dreamscape Latte.

Place in your blender: 1 1/2 cup  of brewed Oregon Chai Dreamscape Tea, 1/4 cup milk beverage of your choice, 1/4 tsp. vanilla bean powder, 1 tsp. cocoa powder, dash of ground cinnamon and nutmeg, 2 tsp. coconut oil, 1 T. Great Lakes gelatin powder,  stevia or sweetener of choice.

Adding the gelatin powder is the trick to getting a great foamy latte.

Blend your latte until smooth and foamy. Sip while uttering a sign of complete contentment.
