Oh yum, this tea is so tasty! I wasn’t too convinced when I first opened the packet because the first scent that reached my nose was a strong chocolate-almondy note that I just didn’t find too convincing. But I went ahead and brewed up and boy is this fantastic. On brewing the chocolate is still there but it is less predominant, and the chili takes the lead followed by the ginger and cardamom and then the chocolate. If you want a tea that tastes strongly of chocolate this may not be for you but if you would like a really kicky chai with a subtle nuttiness and a chocolate finish then you will love this as much as I do.

Edit: I just have to add that I’ve finished half my pouch of this already & I’m ordering a second, bigger pouch today so that I can keep treating myself to this yummy cup of tea. It is just about the perfect breakfast tea, all those spices really get me up and moving in the morning.

Bio

I’m an expat Brit in America, a lifelong tea lover in that British “milk and two sugars” way, who 6 years ago learned to love her tea without sugar, and now is learning to love it without milk. Two summers ago I learned how to make a proper glass of American iced tea. I’m new to indie tea and having an alarming amount of fun trying out all the amazing blends I keep finding! I used to just drink the black tea I brought home from my visits to the UK plus things like Yogi ginger, and now I am finding a whole new world of tea out there to explore.

Right now I’m mostly interested in flavoured teas as I find those the easiest to enjoy without milk and especially in teas with little to no caffeine as too much caffeine can really send my body chemistry into a tailspin. In the early morning I indulge myself with a couple of cups of something caffeinated but after that it’s noncaf all the way. My teacups are pint sized and I usually have one near me.
