First stovetop chai of the autumn! Also, the first time trying this tea. Many many many thanks to Doulton!!!!!
I made it the usual way (cup of milk, cup of water, 4 teaspoons of tea simmered 8-10 min, generous squirt of honey) and it was exactly what I was craving. The spices were warming and delicious without being overpowering (black pepper was present but not obnoxious). It was full of cardamom pods which makes me extremely happy! I also love the fact that it’s fair trade and organic.
What a treat!
