for a strong, fast pick-me-up
Are you a big fan of trying different and “new” things on a menu? Do you try things just because of a catchy name?
Do you always order the same thing or do you like to “work your way through a menu”?
I know I do – I like variety and I dig a catchy name – and especially if the food or drink is something I haven’t tried before.
Today, I was at one of my favourite retro-style cafes waiting on some friends for a creative project business meeting.
A beverage called the Dirty Chai caught my attention.
I usually love a good soothing Chai Latte – but today I tried a Dirty Chai – after asking what it was, of course!
I was told it’s a Chai Latte – with an added shot of coffee! A bit more expensive because of the extra shot of coffee – but I was feeling experimental!
Coffee and Chai Tea together – that sounds terrible!! Dirty Chai sounds much better – even intriguing!
Anyway, I tried it and enjoyed the complex and contrasting mix. At first there was a clash of tastes – but then harmony.
After the initial coffee bitterness – a smoother, softer mellow aftertaste of the Chai.
For me, one of the coolest things was the attitude of the cafe (Southside Tearooms in Morningside)- another customer ordered a Chai Latte. The barista has some left over coffee from making my Dirty Chai and she gave the customer a free upgrade to the Dirty Chai.
I also love going to cafes in Byron Bay and partaking in LSD – that stands for Latte Soy Dandelion. That’s a smooth sweet combination too!
What about you? What’s your favourite brew?
What does it “say” about you?
Are you always having the same thing – or do you like to try different things?
Well, if you didn’t know before – now you know what a Dirty Chai is!
