• Chai Floats

    Chai Floats

    Chai floats are making our summer so much better.

    The recipe is simple: 

    Add a scoop of your favorite vanilla ice cream (if you're around Chico, we recommend Savor Ice Cream) to a tall glass, then top with Chico Chai Concentrate, and grate a little fresh nutmeg on top.

    Don't have access to our concentrate? DIY it in your own kitchen!

  • Chai for Mom & Black Mamas Bail Out!

    It's not too late to remember something nice for your mom (or someone who has cared for you like a mom). A new little teapot with some fresh chai, a chai candle, or a gift certificate so she can choose her own (scroll down for my favorites).

    It's also time for our annual Mother's Day Black Mamas Bail Out fundraiser. This drive helps get moms and caregivers home to their families while they await trial, instead of waiting in jail, simply because of a lack of funds. (There's so much more to say about the importance of this fund, but I'll let the organizers speak for themselves-click on the link above for more info). We're donating 50% of the profits from every online purchase of our popular Original chai, from now until Mother's Day.

    When I first heard of this fund a few years ago, I jumped on it. As a brand new mom, I couldn't imagine being separated from my baby just because I didn't have enough money for bail. My daughter is now four, and I plan on continuing this fundraiser every year, in her honor.

    Thanks so much for supporting Black Mamas Bail Out, my small business and my tiny family!

    Love, Sarah

    2 tsp loose leaf Original Chico Chai 

    Cream butter and sugar.  Grind chai in a coffee grinder or blender and stir into mixture. Then sift in flour and stir. Chill dough in fridge for a few hours. (Honestly, if you don’t have time to chill it, it usually works fine anyway) Roll dough between sheets of wax paper, to about ¼ inch thickness, then cut out into shapes. Bake on cookie sheets at 350 for 8-12 minutes.

    makes about 2 dozen cookies, depending on size
