We'll just come out and admit it. We're incredibly addicted to AppalaChai. The well-rounded sweet and spicy beverage is incredibly craveable both hot and cold. It's a classic beverage and yet, creating the perfect blend can be hard to achieve, but AppalaChai has done it, and we're so thankful to have them at WATM each week so we can get our fix.
AppalaChai is a family business and most weeks you'll see Tommy representing at the market. We asked him a couple questions so you can get to know him a little better. Stop, say hi, and try a warming chai at the market this afternoon.
