This week, I’ve been sipping on something delicious – Strawberry Chai Tea! This uncomplicated strawberry infused tea is so simple, I dare call it a recipe. So, I shall it call it simply an ingredient combination.

Apparently, I’ve amassed quite the water bottle collection. I have a large (32 oz) infused water bottle that I use when I’m out and about without easy access to fresh water. If I’m spending the day outdoors in the Florida heat, I carry my insulated water bottle. I use my smaller Gear Ultimate Infuser Water Bottle when I am likely to get sweaty and need something smaller and easier to hold than the 32oz bottle.

Of course, drinking water all the time in any form gets boring.  I also own a VidaKai Infuser bottle that works great for loose leaf tea.  Like all my other bottles, it’s made of strong BPA-free, dishwasher-safe, Triton material.  It handles heat well, comes with a neoprene sleeve to protect your hands from heat.

Instead of the standard infuser that most bottles have, the VidaKai infuser bottle employs a smaller metal mesh cup. Very small ingredients, like loose-leaf tea, do not leak into your water.  It’s perfect for loose-leaf tea and heavily seeded fruits (think blueberries).

Unfortunately, this bottle isn’t insulated, so the tea only stays piping hot for about the same amount of time it would in a coffee mug.  However, it’s hard to take coffee mug on the road.

You can make this strawberry chai tea in any loose-leaf tea infuser, but I like the convenience making the beverage in a water bottle affords.  Since this bottle has a carry strap, I can easily take it out the door without worrying about spills.  Here are the basics.

  1. Slice up 2 strawberries.
  2. Measure out 1 tsp good quality loose-leaf tea.  I like Vahdam Loose-leaf Darjeeling Green Marsala Chai Tea.  It’s a high-quality tea with a mild, non-bitter taste that blends well with fruits like strawberries.
  3. Layer the tea leaves and strawberries into the infuser.  Sprinkle with your favorite all natural sweetener such as honey, monk fruit, or agave syrup.

  4. Fill your container with hot water. Insert filled infuser  Steep for 5 minutes and enjoy.  If you are using the infuser bottle, you can easily remove the mesh basket if desired.

I made this video for those curious about using the infuser bottle.  It’s a little different from traditional infusers, so I thought you would find it helpful.  The sound wouldn’t cooperate during editing, so you may need to turn your speakers up to hear it.

I recieved a free sample in exchange for a fair and honest evaluation.

      It is! You could even add ice after it steeps!

      This is a green chai – completely unexpected and different. It also goes great with regular tea.

    This sounds delicious! I’ve just recently started getting into chai tea and can just imagine how much flavor infusing the strawberries adds to it!

    That sounds really good. I have never had Chai Tea before. Is it better cold or hot or both?
