This is my first chaï made as an indian chaï.
I didn’t exactly respected DF’s instructions and put the tea directly in the milk while cooking and not after it boiled.
This is really good ! I didn’t expect to manage to make a good chaï at the first attempt but here it is.
The spices are really wonderful : cardamom is really the main one but the second roles have their partition to play as well.
Really love it.

Preparation
Boiling 3 min, 15 sec

good on you, I love indian chai done chai style. or better I love expensive french takes on indian chai, the chai blends I get at the indian grocery stores do not compare at all.

have you ever had chandernagor? I love it crazily and curious how this one compares, seems like the same spices…

I never had Chandernagor because once I was hesitating and finally I have chosen Mandalay.
I can send you a sample of Anichaï and of Thé des Mille Collines (a Dammann Chaï as well)I was thinking about that while doing this chaï

Thank you very much for the suggestion, but I have no new teas to send and still many samples to try. Maybe in Autumn?

Chandernagor is lovely, my favorite classic chai. But that is one thing I like MF very much for, they have a few totally perfectly classic ultimate versions of classic things. Chandernagor is the chai for me, Casablanca is the mint green tea….

First, please forgive me for my English and all the grammatical mistakes you’ll find in my posts.
As English isn’t my mother tongue it sometimes makes things more difficult to express cleverly and accurately what I feel.

I was mainly in black flavoured teas, green as well if not bitter.
I’m now drinking much straight teas because my palate is now developed enough to appreciate them .

My favourite brands are : Mariage Frères,Theodor,Butiki Teas,Dammann Frères, Betjeman & Barton.
My ratings are as follow :

100 to 95 : my darlings; always in my cupboard

94 to 90 : Excellent tea, often in my cupboard

89 to 80 : very good tea, a pleasure to drink it

79 to 70: not bad even nice, why not having it sometimes, but well, not so urgent !

69 to 50 : Meh, deceptive or just not for me – but has some qualities

49 to 30 : I just don’t appreciate it

Under 30 : is this tea ?!?!?
