1 TB for 500mL water, no milk or sweetener.

I brewed the Pure Chai today expecting it to pack no heat; I really miss any spicekick i this blend, as I noted before.

So today I just expected a pleasant, slightly sweet cinnamon black tea.

And if that’s what you want, David’s Pure Chai is lovely. It’s an Indian black tea base, with CTC leaves I think (they’re very small_ and great big chunks of cinnamon sticks. plus whole cloves. Neither spice nor tea dominates.

I still want to try this simmered on the stovetop, perhaps with some ginger tea tossed in.

Today, I’ll settle for upping the rating.

No bitterness with the 5-minute steep, either.

Writer and tea fiend. Author of DELUDED YOUR SAILORS, SKY WAVES, DOUBLE-BLIND, and THE SHADOW SIDE OF GRACE.

I prefer straight teas but will try almost anything … so long as it’s not tainted with hibiscus. I loathe hibiscus.

Oolongs and blacks are my favourites.
