Continuing my quest to find a good chai, and aided by Dexter3657 who appears to have sent me all the chai in her cupboard including this one, I’ve steeped this while at the cottage this past weekend. Hot chai in the summer? Yes, especially if you get caught out on the lake by monsoon-type rain. We were fishing and as soon as the first drops started falling we pulled anchor and took off. Docked just fine but it’s a boat, not a car, you can’t just leave it and run. By the time we put the cover on and tied it down we were drenched. So you peel off your wet clothes, hang ’em up to dry, take a hot shower and sit down with some chai.
I have yet to find a chai where they weren’t heavy handed with the cloves. Why, oh why?!? This one was one of the better ones I’ve tried but still not mine, still too much clove. I have enough for another cup and I will possibly underleaf — which actually might not be a bad thing, I found the resteep was yummier than the first steep. With sugar and creamer I drank it and it was not bad. It will not, however, be a part of my cupboard.
As for the fishing…good eats!
