41 Tasting Notes
I have decided that steeping in the milk is an essential part of making good chai. I think some of the flavors in the spice mix are only soluble in fat (so don’t use skim milk either).
Today’s first cup was like heaven.
Combined this with specialtead East Friesan Broken blend, and prepared it in my new Breville one touch. I decided to follow the recipe and put the milk in the tea and reboil. It was a little scary putting milk in my new kettle but it handled it just fine.
This tea was simply amazing. Spicy, sweet, smelling of cloves and cardamon. Definately going to infuse this a few more times.
I don’t think I used enough tea leaves. The flavor was very light and sweet, but not very complex.
Wonderful flavor – needed no milk at all.
Followed the directions – the flavor of the first infusion was WAY too strong. Even cream didn’t help. I drank it anyways to see if it would grow on me. It did, but there was just a really bitter overtone that I didn’t like.
I can’t get enough of this. It’s never bitter – and it has quite a kick to it.
I love this tea, its never bitter and has quite a kick. It makes a tea black as coffee with a wonderful earthy flavor.
I brew mine extra long so its extra strong. I’m not sure that is the “proper way”, but that’s how I like it.
