Almost to the end of this sample, which makes me sad because it is super tasty.
The weather today has been extremely ick, but I am still in the mood for something fruity. Solution: Fruity chai!
Although I am still in love with this and am going to be ordering a big thing of it at some point, I am no longer filled with the same urgency as when I first started drinking it. In fact, I am going to bring down it’s rating a bit, just because I’ve had so many super tasty teas lately. But I still love you Spiced Apple Chai! Don’t be sad! You just do not amaze me with your tastiness or amazing blendosity like coconut pouchong and caramelized pear do! I still drink you in the space of about 2 minutes!
I quite like the fact that as a chai it is not quite so spicy as other chais are because I am reasonably sure that is all that is allowing the apple flavor to get through. It’s just enough chai to give me the “comfort against the cold” feeling, but not enough chai to keep the tea from being quaffable. Not that quaffability is a quality that I desire in ALL my teas, but having a couple around is nice.I guess the apple flavor I get isn’t so much fresh apple as like, apple pie filling. A function of the cinnamon I guess. This particular cup is EXTREMELY cinnamony, but as I am at the bottom of the tin, I am willing to give it a pass.
