This isn’t one of those mild, whimpy little chais, that’s for sure! The tea is wonderfully fragrant, smelling mostly of cloves and pepper, but I can tell that there are a few other things mixed in there too. The flavours are similar aswell – this tea doesn’t do subtle I’m thinking!

Interestingly, the base isn’t particularly harsh despite the bold flavours. A lot of chais use a really crappy base because the sellers know that it’ll mostly be covered up by the spices. But in this case the tea is quite smooth, I don’t particularly feel like I have to have this tea with milk in order to make it drinkable (although I’m sure it would be nice).

Bio

I’m a university student in her twenties who’s currently working her way toward a Bachelor of Natural Resource Science degree. I love both science and science-fiction and I’m a history nut on top of that. Maybe I should just call myself a nerd and leave it there. ;)

I’ve been drinking tea since I was young but it’s only in the past couple years that I’ve become interested in the good-quality stuff.

I’m also a self-proclaimed Grammar-Nazi, and improper capitalization and spelling invariably makes me twitch (yes, I mean you!)
