4 Tasting Notes
Excellent blend. In the bag, you can smell the chocolate and vanilla. In the cup, it’s a touch earthy with a slightly sweet taste. Not overly sweet, but just enough to give you a little treat. I have a cup with my breakfast when I need a pick-me-up from the black tea, but want a sweeter taste. I can definitely imagine the caped crusader having a cup before starting his day. Steep at 180 for 6 minutes.
Definitely one of my favorites now; quite yummy, I love the spice blend. The orange peels give it a hint of sweetness without overpowering the anise and ginger. Love it for cold winter mornings. Brew for 5 minutes, any more will leave that bitter/dirt taste. I have a cup after most meals. If you like chai, you’ll like this.
You can never, EVER go wrong with this tea! Open you tin and inhale the deeply minty scent and it immediately opens your sinuses. Whenever I have an upset tummy, indigestion, headache or sore throat, I reach straight for this! Brewed hot, it warms you up but cools you down at the same time. Brewed then made iced (maybe with some Rooibos Tropica and Samurai Chai Mate—yum!), it’s an INSANELY refreshing summer drink! My all-time favorite tea! :]
