I have recently discovered how delicious chia is in a beverage. I’ve always just sprinkled it over some oats, made some chia jam or pudding. Watch out chia pudding, there’s a new chia craze in town, chia tea!

I’m on my ninth year working for Starbucks (#tobeapartner) so you can only imagine how much Teavana Tea I have collected over the years–like loads of it. I decided to start incorporating it into some of my recipes to ya know, try and clean out my kitchen cabinets a bit.

Last week I made an incredible Orange Green Tea Lemonade with Chia for another company and it was so tasty I started dreaming up other flavor combinations. I decided to combine my favorite fruits with my favorite Starbucks Tea, thus giving me the most delicious (and healthiest) tea I have ever had to drink…IN MY LIFE!
