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.

Profile

Bio

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.
