Winter Warmth: A Sampling of Chai and More.
When: January 17, 1:00pm
Cost: $10
Location: Townshend's Alberta Street Teahouse

Is there any better way to warm your morale than with a hot cup of tea? Known by many names, chai lattes are especially adept at creating some internal warmth. This month we will help you survive the cold by sampling a selection of our chais (and a few other cozy teas). We'll also explore the history of the spicy, milky drink: the etymological evolution of the word “chai” - how it grew from simply meaning tea to the specific brew we expect, and the colonial expansion that set the stage for the unique blend of tea and spices. During the tasting, you will also enjoy some signature blends concocted by our staff not normally available for purchase.
