It’s one of those rare occasions that I actually fancy a ‘nice’ cup of chai. This is a new brand to me so I approach with caution and am sticking to the instructions: Steep time 4 minutes, boiling water, splash of milk.

Ingredients: Black tea, cinnamon, cardamom, ginger, cloves, black pepper and natural flavour.

A few ingredients there that I am not keen on (cloves and cardamom) but hopefully this will be a nice blend rather than being heavy on one taste in particular.

First few sips: I can taste the cinnamon and cardamom so spicy and citrus with a slight after taste of clove but the milk has weakened that somewhat (thankfully). So far it tastes as I expected.

Half way down: The cardamom becomes stronger and now I am having trouble to taste anything else, I think that is one of the reasons I hate cardamom. No longer can I taste the delicious cinnamon or spicy ginger :(

For me that makes this cup average for chai and I dislike average chai. Nothing personal Dragonfly Tea but I shall not be buying this again.

Boiling 4 min, 0 sec

I am 26 years old from Leicester, England. I have been drinking tea for many years now and have been getting more and more appreciative about good tea’s. I like to try new and exciting tea’s and import regularly as a treat.

Tea wise my cravings change constantly from pu erh one month to jasmine green to the next and so on.

I adore cats and have four of my own called Honey, Cassie, Mr Soots and Ivory.

I also have two fish tanks which thankfully my cats have no interest in. They house an array of tropical fish and shrimp.

I am a proud vegetarian and have been for the majority of my life. When I say vegetarian I mean just that as well, no fish or seafood, no chicken now and again, no animal products such as gelatine and cochineal.

I am also an avid reader and enjoy curling up with a book (mostly crime, horror, thriller, literature genres) in one hand and a cup of tea in the other.

I also enjoy watching Japanese Anime and horror films.

I am always up for tea swaps so if you see anything in my virtual cupboard then please contact me.
