4 Tasting Notes
This tea smells very sweet, but luckily it is not as sweet to taste. I think the berry flavour overpowers most of the tea flavours, but overall it’s a nice light, fruity drink.
On the first steep, this imported tea is delicate without lacking in any flavour; it is very earthy and has a delicious aroma in the pot. As it sits it gets earthier, and can tend towards a bitterness that is still pleasant.
The leaves must have the proper room to expand, or the flavour is not as strong and is grassier than otherwise. I would suggest brewing this tea just in the bottom of the pot, instead of in a tea ball or a nest.
This delightful tea is flavourful and smooth, with a strong finish. Almost amber coloured as it steeps, it fills the area with its rich aroma.
Can be enjoyed with or without milk, but my preference is without.
This is by far one of my favourite Chai-Tea blends. The tea itself is delicate enough to allow a steep that lets the spices come through without a bitter finish. It doesn’t require milk or sugar to be delicious, as some chai blends do.
I would however, recommend separating the cardamom pods and pink pepper and giving them a bit of a crunch before you brew. This brings out their flavour much more than leaving them whole.
