drank Bollywood Chai by DAVIDsTEA
33 tasting notes

Mmmmmm. Warm and spicy with a bit of pepperiness. The tea is so beautiful to look at in the tin. I picked out one if the pink candied fennel seeds and chewed it, yum! I steeped it as suggested on the package. The liquor was very light for many chais I have tried that have a black tea base. I added milk and a very small amount of honey. The flavor is very nice and complex although a tad bit weak. I could taste the cardamom, cinnamon, pepper and ginger. I don’t like strong ginger but in this chai the ginger balance was to my liking, just enough to spice it up. The vanilla gave it a nice creaminess, I really enjoy vanilla notes in chai.
I am really happy I bought 100 g of this tea. Next time I will use a bit more tea to strengthen the favors more. I really enjoyed my first purchase from DavidsTea and I am looking forward to trying my other selections.

That sounds really good! I hope you enjoy sampling DavidsTea, but one word of advice: don’t buy 100g of everything! A lot of people here did that once they got started into loose leaf tea, and then you might have way too much of a tea that you’re just sorta into. I’m still trying to drink “The Skinny” (it’s good, but not one I want often), and a few others. If you’re able to actually go to the store, it’s much cheaper/better to buy 10-30g of all the ones you’re interested in to see what you like. If you’re not close enough, then… just be careful? Maybe try swapping for samples of DavidsTea?

(They are ALL over Canada. I just assume they are all over the US too, but I realise they’re still expanding that way).

Ditto that :)

Yes! you are very right. No DavidsTea even remotely in my area. Actually, that is the only one I bought 100 grams of. I was aiming for free shipping, just added it on for the free tin too. My boyfriend really loves chai so I wasn’t too scared to get a little more.
