When I opened it, all I could smell was gingerbread. When I steeped it, gingerbread. When I drink it, gingerbread. And when it fades to the aftertaste? You guessed it; gingerbread.

Gingerbread isn’t bad, mind you. It’s just not what I was expecting. I can’t really taste anything else. I guess it’s the really strong and slightly bitter Chai? I’ve never had it before, so maybe I just have to adjust.

But the first time I brewed it for 6 minutes and it was almost too bitter to drink. I had added a little sugar but it was too much (though the gingerbread aftertaste was nice)! My fiance couldn’t handle it either so we added honey to dull the taste. Then I tried it again, going for 3 minutes, and mixed with milk and sugar. Still needs more sugar. It’s not that sweet, just… gingerbread.

That’s all I can really taste! Still, I’ll finish my 3oz bag. It’s not bad; pretty good, even. Just not expected.

Edit// Tried it again this morning. Added milk and a little extra sugar. I’m drinking gingerbread. The bitterness is gone and it just tastes like cookies, and it’s amazing. Definitely not regretting this purchase!

Oh hi. Last year I made the switch from soda to water and then water to tea. So I’m always looking for more teas to try. I like fruity and sweet ones (since I’m from the south and need my sugar).
