412 Tasting Notes
This took a long time to make, for tea, but I wouldn’t have complained if it was worth it. The spice balance here is “all wrong” for the kind of Chai that normally comes to mind (at least to my mind) – it completely lacks spiciness. It was a shame to ruin such a good tea base with such a poor chai mixture. I am going to make my own spicier blend next time.
End of day relaxation tea, brewed three times in a Gaiwan, and then all merged into a single class cup. Yes, I am sacrilegious, blending East and West with such abandon. But this tea can take it, and the result was as comfortingly “bread-y” as usual.
Still one of the weirder looking teas that I own.
