Tazo Chai Mead

Tazo Chai Mead

Let’s see how to make a Chai Mead, hold the latte. Tazo Teas had no idea their mixture could be fermented, or… maybe they did? Who knows? Mead is a fermented alcoholic beverage made from honey. In this case, it’s highly spiced, as a chai latte would be. Should be an interesting mead project, and it’s a beginner mead IMHO, and easily a mead anyone can make at home!

Special Thank You to Todd Truby for the Honey!

Super Spiced Chai Mead – Did We Go Too Far?

We made Chai Mead a few weeks ago, and I decided it just didn’t have enough… spice! So we added cinnamon and allspice berries and let it sit. So… did we over spice a spiced mead? Is it too spiced now? What could possibly go wrong with adding more spices, right? We vote on our final thoughts.

Chai Mead, Super Spiced

We made a Mead from Tazo Chai Tea Mix. It’s been a year. Let’s see how this mead tastes, shall we?
