Thursday Tea Time - Traveling Texas

This week - Tea is For Texas Farmers' Market Series - "Texas 'Dirty' Chai" from the Independence Coffee Co.

Price:  $3.99 - $4.99  at HEB
Size:  1 ounce
Caffeine:   Oh my, YES!
Type of Tea:    Black
Steeping time:  4 minutes
Mix ins:  Coffee Mate Sweet Italian Cream Sugar Free
Fragrance:  Cinnamon, spicy, coffee - Mmmmm!
Ingredients:  Black tea, cinnamon, cloves, orange peel made 'dirty' with crushed coffee beans added
Opinion:   What a great way to wake up in the morning and when you need a jumpstart later in the day.  It is tea with a kick.  In a 1, 2, 3 - you get cinnamon, spices and then coffee flavors, and you can't stop sipping it.  I have "exported" this so far to friends in Australia and New York.    I will also be posting reviews about their coffee K-Cups called Indie Shots, keeping in mind, I'm not a huge coffee fan, but I am of theirs.  Madalyn's Backyard Pecan?  Old New Orleans Creme Brûlée?  Seriously.   (Local Houstonians - not all HEB's carry the tea and the K-cups, whole and ground coffee. The HEB on Dunlavy has the tea and the K-cups.  The Sugar Land/Highway 6/90A has the coffees.  Get your store manager to order for you or at least look up and see which store does.  And I'm also usually grabbing the last box of Creme Brûlée - it's a mover, so if you see it, try to restrain yourself and leave one behind if you can!  Just kidding, the more y'all buy, the more they will make and sell.  Win-win-win.)
You can order online via the Independence Coffee website or H-E-B's website  Also if you are heading to Brenham looking for bluebonnets, here's two coffee shops to check out which also sell the line.
