The last of my samples from The Tea Table! I wanted to do something special with this one, so I brewed it extra strong and then made a latte with coconut milk and dulce de leche. Ooooh lord is it amazing! The chai itself is quite strong and spicy, with a lot of ginger. The lemongrass is prominent, but it doesn’t overpower the other spices. The base tea is very strong, even with all the other stuff going on, which I love. I like my chais strong in all respects, and this definitely delivers!
With the coconut milk it reminds me a bit of Adagio’s Thai Chai, only dare I say better. It’s stronger and spicier, but still with distinct lemongrass/ginger flavors that gives you that Asian feel. The dulce just takes it to the next level, adding caramel notes and delicious sweetness. As I prepared it this probably warrants a 100 rating, but of course I’ll try to contain my excitement and rate based on the tea itself!
EDIT: I made a second cup of this with all the extras and the flavor held up just as well—in fact, it was a little spicy! Chais often don’t resteep well but I think I could even get a 3rd out of this blend. I really shouldn’t be drinking two sugary lattes in a day, but my kitty is sick and I won’t be able to get him to the vet until tomorrow and of course I am driving myself crazy with worry so I need something comforting.
