If there was ever a day I needed a good chai, it’s today. Our heater died sometime during the night, so it’s currently 48 degrees in my dining room. Something tells me I’ll be drinking more tea than usual today. At least until the repair man gets here (some time between noon and four).
On to the tea…
I bought this tea on a whim, and I’m so glad I did. It’s amazing. The mix of spices and black tea is wonderful. (side note: When I pulled the container off the shelf I had to use the scoop to mix up the tea because all of the spices had settled to the bottom.) This isn’t a super spicy chai, but it does have a little kick. There’s a bit of warmth in the back of my throat, which is nice. What I really love is that this isn’t a cinnamon heavy chai or a cardamom only chai. The spice blend is very well done, and the tea itself is good. It is strong enough to hold its own with the spices, but it also has a nice smoothness. No bitterness at all.
This is my favorite chai to date. I think I’ll make some on the stove after I take my youngest to school. Anything to help warm up this house!
