I actually designed this tea almost a year before I read the book A Little Princess. I’ve loved the movie for ages, so I thought it would be fun to make a tea inspired by it!

Masala chai originated in India, so I knew it would be the perfect starting point for my tea. But how to make it unique? I decided to blend it with chocolate chai to add some sweetness to the spice. Then I added a touch of vanilla to even out the flavors, and voilà: a chai reminiscent of spicy hot chocolate, perfect for a little girl like Sara Crewe! 🙂

When little Sara huddled in her cold attic room, no doubt she imagined how wonderful it would be to have a steaming mug of hot chai, just like she would have enjoyed while living in India. This combo of Adagio’s Chocolate Chai, Masala Chai, and Vanilla tea creates a cozy blend reminiscent of spiced hot chocolate. It’ll have you dreaming of visiting India with Sara in no time! 🙂

    • Thanks! Me too. I’ll admit, her perfection made it hard for me to relate to her, but I really admired how she responded to her situation. It definitely made me take a second look at myself. I think of myself as a pretty mature person, but I don’t think I could handle Sara’s hardships with nearly as much grace as she did!

        • Yeah, I think one of the pros of the movie is that they made Sara a little more relatable. She’s a little older in the movie (I think she’s 7 in the book), and they added a couple of scenes, like when she dumps the ashes down the chimney. That was one of my favorites! 🙂

            • I’m not sure which I like better (which I guess is a good problem to have!). I liked the way the movie portrayed Sara’s character better, but I think the book did a more nuanced job of relaying the overall message of the story.

  1. Gosh, this sounds divine. So divine that I ended up buying a sample tin! (along with a sample tine of the Hundred Acre Blend, Miss Mary’s Garden Blend, and Star Trek TNG: Sciences Blue). I can’t wait!!!

      • So far I’ve tasted the Chai Tea, the Science Blues, and Miss Mary’s Garden blend. All three were delightful, but I think Miss Mary’s Garden blend is my favorite so far. I’m a total sucker for floral flavorings in tea (when it’s done right), and you have the right balance in this blend. Plus! That juicy strawberry flavor?! It’s perfect!
