Very nice! I definitely got both the vanilla and spice flavors of this tea. I steeped this my usual way for chais – 2 tea bags in about 10 oz water, then add sugar and milk (in this case, I tried almond milk). Delicious. My first cup was probably a tad on the weak side, but still tasty. I would steep for at least 5 minutes – maybe longer. I didn’t get any bitterness at a bit over 5 minutes. I was afraid this might taste artificial, with the artificial flavors added, but it doesn’t really. Just a nice sweet and spiced cup.
