Even Nick - designated driver at our barbecue, whilst his wife enjoys a glass of wine and not overly keen to be on the tea - beams at me happily as he sips a fragrant Bollywood Chai Latte saying, 'it just tastes and smells exotic. I feel like I'm back in Peru drinking tea with the locals or on holiday somewhere amazing ...'.
And it is not just the grown ups. My 10 year old daughter Sadie, delighted by this new pop of colour sat on the sideboard, regularly plucks from the plethora of exciting little pyramids, the Chai Gingerbread Latte, now her tea of choice at the breakfast table each morning. I'm happy with that as it's a healthy replacement for her usually sugar loaded hot chocolate.
