If there’s one thing I know, it’s that the Chai Latte at Terra Cafe (housed on the first floor of the Montclair Library’s main location) is the best I’ve tasted. Anywhere. They don’t use a mix for their Chai, in fact, when I stopped in on Friday, I had to wait because a new pot needed to be brewed. So worth the wait.
When I stopped in for a latte on Friday (that sounds a lot more decadent than it was), I took the opportunity during the wait to browse the Fair-Trade Holiday Sale going on at Terra Cafe. I ended up buying a Nazar from Turkey and some gorgeous ornaments from Peru. There are also beautiful woven bracelets and earrings of all shapes and sizes. Another gift idea is a basket made up with products from the cafe. Mmmmm…Coffee. I looked at the funky wallets made from recycled materials and the decorative flowers shaped from paper, and I may have to return to take a second look.
If you need a gift, whether it’s for the holidays or for a birthday or for yourself, this fair-trade sale is going on until the 24th. And make sure to try their Chai, latte or otherwise. Beautiful complimentary wrapping (with no green or red!) is available as well.
