I admit I was a little skeptical when I heard there was carrots in this tea. I was like “No…not Carrot Cake again.” Not that Carrot Cake was bad but it took a lot to get used to it which is probably why I still have a full harvest tin. But I digress. Slowly I approached the big old silver tin and took a sniff.
It smelled heavenly, like spice cake or gingerbread. The vanilla totally added this warm note to it that sent the tea to a sweet place where it was all good. When I finally took it home it tasted just as good as it smelt. Very gingerbread without the ginger. If I was to compare this to any other chai it would have to be “Glitter and Gold” which is probably why it was able to win me over as it did.
I recommend this highly for anyone who loves chai and the joy of the season. Thanks David for bringing this one back. Especially for those who never got to try it when it first came out. Bon Appetit.
