Starting my morning with a cup of chai. It was my last night of house sitting for my parents and I can’t wait to go home and see my cats….my husband too (but mostly the cats lol).
This raw blend smells strongly of cardamom and something hot like pepper, almost makes me need to sneeze. Just looked at the ingredients and pepper was not mentioned but it does say natural ingredients. It might not be pepper, it’s just something very dry and spicy hot…perhaps very strong cinnamon instead. No idea.
With Chai I have a splash of milk and one spoon of sugar. Flavour is not overly strong which in a way is disappointing. The cardamom is the most dominant flavour with a toasted Oolong coming through in the after taste. A touch of cinnamon comes through but again as a whole this is a very mild Chai. I really don’t think there is enough depth or ray of flavours for a true Chai.
I can at least say the cardamom lifts it from being too dark and Oolong and since it’s not that strong there is no ick factor. It’s an average Chai.
