I got this as a sample with my last order from Davids Tea and finally decided to try it. The dry smell is very promising. Peppercorns, ginger, cinnamon with a touch of cloves, mmm nice strong spices. At first it tastes like cloves. Then of cinnamon and ginger with a touch of peppercorn in the after taste. This chai is ok. Nothing really special. I was expecting more peppercorn and ginger. Well in general I was expecting more from this tea. The smell was so promising, I am disappointed in the taste. Maybe next time I will steep it for longer. I have enough of my sample for one more cup, hopefully that one turns out a bit better.
