63 Tasting Notes
I prefer to drink black chais neat (nothing added) and this one is smooth and flavorful. The balance of ingredients is perfect. Unlike other chais they don’t use too much black pepper. They use an Indian black tea and the flavor is wonderful. I really tasted the cardamon which is very nice. I imagine this cup is sublime made in a pan with milk.
I thought this cup was tepid. A fine idea, but it doesn’t deliver. The flavors of cranberry and blood orange are dismally minimal. The black tea base didn’t do anything for me. Usually teas from The Republic of Tea vanish in a few days (in my house) but this sat. I’d be very eager and best pleased to try a loose-leaf version of this if they will make one. Maybe that will make a difference.
This is the best tea bag herbal I’ve ever found. The taste is of caramel and vanilla. They advertise cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and cloves as the ingredients but there must be secret ingredients because this is outstanding. Profoundly exotic with a smile-inducing flavor and a powerful aroma. My mother smelled the aroma coming from the cup and said “ooooh what is that?”.
The black tea is between light and medium bodied, with a fruity and floral taste. It is advertised as a fruity black tea with lemony bergamot, but I didn’t taste the lemony bergamot. I must point out I bought this on sale. It might have been “sitting there”. I will try this again and I’ll avoid “on sale” tea.
