This tea was a pleasant surprise. I am not usually one for chais. For some reason, spicy teas usually make me nauseous. And I dislike ginger, cardamom, and pepper in tea. With this one, I get to bypass the ginger, cardamom, and pepper, while enjoying a few tea spices that I actually enjoy!
Dry, the tea smells like cinnamon. And steeped, it tastes very cinnamony. It doesn’t have the punch-in-the-face cinnamon of David’s Cinnamon Heart, but it’s up there. The rest of the spices mellow it out a bit. I really like this both straight and as a latte. It also delights me that it’s free of flavoring, natural or otherwise. Sometimes, it’s just nice to have something pure and simple. And this is both.
