This is my favorite tea. Sometimes I brew it as instructed and other times I will use a loose-leaf mesh teabag and leave it in my mug the whole time. It never seems to get bitter and the later sips bring some powerful spice flavors!
3 Tasting Notes
This is hands down my favorite of the bagged Chai tea brands you can find at your average supermarket. I steep 2 bags in a 16oz steel travel mug for 5 minutes, and usually keep a stick of cinnamon in the mug the entire time for added flavor. The tea is good on its own, but if you’re looking for a little extra spice flavor, give the cinnamon stick a try.
This tea has a very weak cinnamon flavor, much weaker than what I was hoping for. At first I didn’t like it at all, but then I tried dropping a stick of cinnamon in and it was actually very tasty!
I brew this tea at work, 2 bags in a 16oz steel travel mug with hot water from the coffee machine, steep for about 2 minutes. Drop the cinnamon stick in immediately and take it out of the empty cup after drinking!
I’m pretty sure I’m using Cassia sticks rather than real Cinnamon sticks, but it tastes great. I’ve used the same stick for the past 4 cups and have noticed no decrease in flavor, although I’m sure I’ll get there eventually. If you’re like me and were looking for a little more punch out of this tea, surely you can find a stick in your spice rack to help you get through the box.
