For this tea I followed the directions that verdant gave with the tea. I used about 1 tsp of loose leaf and boiling water. Dry it smells of a nice chai with a hint of chocolate.

Steep 1: I steeped for 5 seconds and it turned to a nice light colored tea. It almost smells like pumpkin pie to me haha. The chai flavor is nice and light with a hint of ginger.

Steep 2: I steeped for 10 seconds, a bit darker then the previous. The chai and ginger area bit stronger as well with just a hint of vanilla and a touch of chocolately goodness :)

Steep 3: I steeped for 10 seconds again. The chai was a bit lighter but the ginger and the vanilla got stronger. The aftertaste is chocolate.

Steep 4: I steeped for 15 seconds. The chai seems to be a bit stronger then the last steep but the ginger is the same. I get less chocolate in the aftertaste this time. There is a bit of vanilla in the aftertaste as well.

Overall very good, I am a bit disappointed the chocolate wasnt that strong. I could drink this tea all day mmm so good. I need to try a chai by boiling it with milk still

I notice that the chocolate comes out more when it drunk cold; I actually prefer it iced over warm.

I didn’t even think to have this tea cold, I’m definitely going to try that next time! That sounds good, thanks for mentioning that :)

best with honey and steeped in milk to me..and longer steep time like a traditional low heat simmered chai.

I was thinking last night that honey might be good in it. I will have to try it this way as well. I have never had it simmered with milk. Thanks Bonnie :)

It’s a grandma thing, the way my granddaughters like me to fix it when they come over to watch a movie.

Hi!!
I’m a 22 year Registered Massage Therapist, Personal Trainer and Tea Lover! I am very much about being healthy, fit and happy.
I have always loved tea but didn’t discover loose leaf tea till 2011. I started my loose leaf addiction with Tazo tea and it very quickly expanded. Now I have fallen in love with DAVIDsTEA, Verdant Tea, and Andrews & Dunham. I am always very eager to try and explore new teas.
I love to drink tea ALL the time :) It is my escape from reality and the stresses of life in order to relax and keep a peaceful clear mind. I have tried white, green, black, oolong, rooibos, pu’erh and herbal teas.

Also I am Celiac and am able to only drink Gluten free teas. I especially love any tea that calms my tummy.
