This is not technically tea. It is a mix of ground chai spices that you add to any kind of tea or beverage or you can have with just hot water. I picked this one up at a local craft fair this weekend. I had it made with hot water and sugar added. It was quite delicious. It is strongly spiced, very strong ginger taste. The sample was titled sweet ginger chai, even though it was just this mix. The salesperson said to me, “now the ginger is going to tickle your throat”. And he was right. There is a bit of a kick to the ginger but I liked it. It was strong ginger but not burning ginger. He recommended to add it to any type of tea: black, green, red or white.

I am looking forward to mixing this with a few kinds of teas and experimenting with my own chai. But honestly it was great with just hot water. Kind of like a chai cider without the cider part. Hmmmm. Now I want to mix this with hot cider, or hot mulled wine! I am going to be busy experimenting tonight.

Bio

I am a lifetime tea lover.

I did foray into the world of coffee for a period of time, but I returned to my true love. I still, however, enjoy a good cup of java.

My all time favorite tea is Earl Grey, which I drink every morning, the stronger the bergamot the better. I definitely prefer natural oil of bergamot to artificial flavouring.

I mostly like black and dark oolong teas. My current favs are Fujian blacks, Keemun and Assams, and Wuyi oolongs. I gravitate towards anything with lychee in it. I also drink a lot of herbal blends but am wary of hibiscus. I do not favour mate, or pu’erh tea, although I have found a few blends that I like. (I so badly want to like straight pu’erh tea but it all tastes gross to me. I keep trying though). Rooibos, green and white teas fall somewhere in the middle. I find myself gravitating towards heavily roasted oolongs and teas from Paris/France based companies.

I love iced teas and cold brews.

My current tea goal is to make the perfect cup of chai from scratch – almost there…I think.

I am in love with the whole experience of tea.
