I picked up a sample of this from Adagio because I’ve been looking for a non-black tea chai spice blend. Also because I love vanilla and have startlingly little of it in my expansive tea collection.
Alas, this disappoints. The clove is so overwhelming that it makes the flavor almost entirely one-note. There is a background of spiciness and a touch of vanilla smoothing out the end of the sip. Mostly clove though. Lots and lots of clove. This is drinkable, but not exactly a well-balanced blend. Sipdown!
