I’m starting my week off with a pitcher of this iced. I prepared it using water just under boiling and steeped for 2 min 30 sec and then put in the refrigerator overnight.
This is a good chai with a sweet and savory baked goods taste that I like. It is not at all bitter and only slightly astringent in a good way. Cinnamon is definitely the most prominent spice. There is a slight sensation of “hotness” at the back of the tongue in the aftertaste, but the tea is in no way hot nor does it cause my tongue to tingle like eating red hots would. Maybe I should try steeping longer or with more leaf. I tend to be super cautious with CTC teas since I really dislike bitterness.
