This is literally my favourite drink I’ve had in California so far. The Dirty Chai latte at Crushcakes is very fragrant. I love the prominent spices, which balance out with the coffee very well. The dirty chai did seem to have some chocolate in it as well, which tasted awesome. The blend of cinnamon, spices, coffee, chocolate and milk in this beverage is a sure winner. It’s so smooth and velvety that I had to restrain myself from gulping it all down. It was also the perfect accompaniment for my drive from Santa Barbara to Santa Monica.

If I ever pass by the Santa Barbara area or any of the neighbouring towns with a Crushcake outlet, I would definitely go out of my way to pick one of these up!
