I love this tea. It is dark, almost black in my cup, like coffee. The chai spices are not overpowering and the combination of the earthiness of Pu-erh and the sweet black tea blends perfectly. It has a sweet, salty, slightly smoky taste. On second steeping a slight smokiness intrudes.
I’m a suddenly enthusiastic tea aficionado. I had no idea how varied and delicious teas could be. Also I’m a dairy-free vegetarian, so if you see me say “cream” or “milk” it means soy milk or soy cream.
