Thank you to Rachel for sending me a sample of this to try… I love chocolate, and double chocolate is even better, so I looked forward to trying it.
I have not yet tried Adagio’s Masala Chai tea – so I don’t know how it compares to some of the other chai teas I’ve had. And since this is a blend with the Masala Chai, I realize this is not a true representation of what the Masala Chai would be like. But, I’m kind of sad that the chai spice isn’t very strong in this blend… nor is the chocolate.
I can taste the spices (mostly the ginger followed by a bit of cinnamon), and I can taste the chocolate… but I feel like both are a bit subtle for something called double chocolate spicy chai. Perhaps my expectations were too high, after having tried several of Rachel’s blends and being very impressed? I don’t know.
This is a nice blend though. The spices and the chocolate are strong enough to detract from the Adagio black tea base which is a very good thing – which makes the blend a bit smoother and definitely more tasty than some of the other black teas from Adagio that I’ve tried.
