Drink of the Week: Third Street Festivus Chai

For the November/December issue, we blind-tested six chai concentrates and found some great options for those days when you don’t feel like fussing with homemade chai. Third Street’s Authentic chai was among our top picks, and their holiday seasonal Festivus chai is just as delicious. A warming mix of cardamom, cinnamon, clove and nutmeg spices, organic black and white teas, and a touch of white chocolate, we found the tea tannins and spices to be more pronounced when mixed with dairy milk, while the creamy, white chocolate flavors become more prominent when mixed with soy. Either way, this is a chai you’ll want to curl up with all winter long. Look for it on shelves at your local Whole Foods or natural grocer, and check out the current issue of Imbibe to see what other chais came out on top in our taste test. $5/32 oz. 3rdstreetchai.com
