I can’t believe such a Chai head like myself has not yet had a cup of full leaf Chai at Starbucks…until tonight!I had some time between my mad dash to the bookstore (got the LAST textbook on the shelf for my class!) and my lecture. I was going to get my usual Earl Grey, but since I already had some Earl Grey Supreme today, I wanted to try something different. I remember a few people raving about this Chai so I thought it would be the best alternative.
And – YES! YUM! Again, I’m amazed that you can get something so unusual at a shop that’s on every corner. This chai is so delightfully licorice-y!!! Nicely spiced, a nice tea flavor, but the licorice really makes it stand out to me. It’s very different than any of the chais I have at home, and I really enjoyed it. It is going to have the honor of my Earl Grey Alternative when I’m at school, because ooof – that Awake tea does not do anything special.
