When you work mostly from home, there are plenty of perks that come with the territory.  For example...wearing pajamas for a conference call, taking afternoon breaks to catch up on old Friends re-runs and stopping to play with Lucy (dog hugs are my favorite stress reliever). Once I'm ready to get back to work I usually need a bit of caffeine fuel to get through the afternoon slump.

Starbucks sent me the new TAZO® Chai Latte K-Cup® pods and they were even better than I expected.  As a workaholic, always in the zone, it's easy for me to forget to take breaks, which is not the best thing in the world for my slow metabolism.  This also isn't the best thing for the other members of my team because when they're around and I turn hangry sometimes it gets ugly.  My Keurig® brewer is a lifesaver in more ways than one and has gotten me through long days of prep, mundane research and brainstorming sessions.  We have a weird little bond like that.

Although I was looking for that inital kick of caffeine to get me back info work mode, once that sweet taste of spice touched my lips, I instantly felt this sense of calmness over me and all I wanted to do was sit back, put my feet up and sip my chai.  But as a #girlboss, we know the hustle must go on, and and it gave me just that gradul boost I needed to finish out my day. 

Richly blended with black tea, cinnamon, ginger, cardamom and vanilla flavor, it's easy to get addicted.  I was a fan of both flavors in the Sweet Meet Spicy Collection, the chai classic latte and the chai vanilla caramel latte.  If you are interested making a little snack with your TAZO® Chai Latte K-Cup® podsPadma Lakshmi developed recipes that pair perfectly with a cup of chai and you can find them by visiting TAZO.com/chai/pairings
