This smelled close to cinnamon hearts with some light grassy notes as well. The taste was lighter than most Chai that I’ve had, slightly spicy on the back of the throat. Oily citrus feeling on the tongue and a bit bitter aftertaste, which is welcomed. This tea was oddly vegetal for a black tea and had a nice tannin dryness to it, but not chalky. As it cooled, it became sweeter and the spices developed more. Second steep had more spice, but the flavours started to dwindle. This tea is delicious cold!6 down – 494 to go!
