I originally broke this tea out this morning only to find, after I had brewed a cup, that there wasn’t a drop of milk in the house. Woe! And Jillian was a sad panda. :(

Fortunately the boyfriend went shopping and picked a jug of skim milk up along with the stuff for supper, so I gave this tea another try this evening and based my review and rating on that second attempt.

The spices in the tea were strong enough to tickle my nose when I opened the bag. It’s a good, balanced mix with cardamom, cloves, and ginger being foremost, and the vanilla bringing smooth, sweet notes to the tea. It’s a very ‘classic’ chai taste with the vanilla adding a little bit ‘extra’. It doesn’t take over the tea, but instead acts as a nice accent to the spices.

This would be a good candidate to make a traditional-style chai with, I’m betting. I’ll have to try it one morning when I’m not too rushed. :)

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!)
