1 Tasting Note

68

This is a deep, rich, spicy tea. It’s so heavy to the spices that the tea base doesn’t really shine as much as I would like. Whole cardamom, cloves, orange peel and cinnamon pieces are richly interspersed with the leaves. It reminds me of holiday baking- but the exotic notes of cardamom add their own layer to the brew.

I have a habit of drinking my chai as I would any black tea- straight up, no milk, no sugar. This chai is a bit strong for my taste without the additives. It’s truly meant to be traditionally brewed as a chai- the robust spiciness still shines strong underneath the milk and sugar, unlike some other chai blends I have tried. Some of the spices (I believe the cloves are guilty) can add a bitter taste if steeped too far beyond 4 minutes.

I personally prefer more tea flavor, but this is a pleasant jaunt away from my constant black tea drinking.
