We continue our review of the Numi Organic Teas Real Cups today by checking out the 2nd flavor in the line-up… Numi Rooibos Chai Real Cups. Normally we associate chai tea as having a traditional black tea base, so to have one with a rooibos base was an interesting change of pace. We always found that taking a chai tea black rendered the spices way too potent and created an intoxicatingly over-spiced cup which was to the point of being sickening, hence why most chai teas are usually transformed into chai lattes via the addition of milk. Would the lighter bodied rooibos tea make any difference this time around? Would it allow us to finally drink a chai tea au natural (i.e. sans milk)? Read on to find out.

The Barnie's CoffeeKitchen Santa's White Chistmas Single-Cup Coffee K-Cups combines the flavors of coconut, nuts, sweet caramel and vanilla to make an amazing cup of single serve coffee. Sure it’s a seasonal offering, but we kinda thinking given how bad the weather has been this Winter we should go back and treat Santa right. Perhaps after drinking a cup of his own brew again, Santa will take away some of this snow.

If you can’t recycle those K-Cups perhaps you can burn them? That’s right a cement plant in British Columbia is using spent Keurig K-Cups as part of the company's push to move from fossil fuels to alternative fuels. Since the K-Cups are not recyclable because, and they are a mixture of materials — coffee grounds, a paper filter, plastic cup, and foil top — that cannot be efficiently separated. Solution? The cement plant dries them out, grinds them up, and uses the spent ash as part of the cement mixture. Imagine - if you get your concrete from this plant you could have a house made of K-Cups.
One very cool thing - there is no change to the plant's emissions. The plant burned 32,682 kg (80,000 pounds) of K-Cups last year, which is millions of individual cups diverted from landfill sites.
