First cup of the day. I’m going to try to have a true Sipdown Saturday today and get through almost all of the rest of the teas in my cupboard. That’s my goal, anyway. This tea is my kind of chai – it’s lightly spicy, but more of a sweet spiciness rather than a peppery spiciness. I also like that you can taste the maltiness of the black tea along with the spices. It is wonderful with a little sugar and milk.
-Dry blend has a mixture of small black pieces of tea leaves with small pieces of spices.
-Dry leaves smell lightly of spicy cinnamon. Tea liquor aroma is of sweet spices.
-Tea liquor is a thick dark brown color.
-Robust malty flavor and finish. Spicy aftertaste with hints of cinnamon.
-Best with milk and sweetener.
-Good tea. A nice chai with a robust and sweet flavor.
