This is the second time I’ve made this tea, and I thought I had tealogged the first. Briefly, I steeped it on the lower end of the recommended steep time range at an unremembered temperature and added milk. It came out weak.
This time I steeped it at the upper end of the recommended steep time range, using 3/4 water and 1/4 heated milk as also recommended. I steeped at a lower temperature because of the white tea, which I don’t really know the correct temperature range for but am guessing 170-185° F maybe. There is also black tea in the ingredient list so maybe I need to treat it like a black tea and steep at 205° F.
The chai did come out better this time. The water to milk ratio is good and creamy but does not overpower the spices. The chai could have still be stronger and I’d have liked it. I couldn’t take the tea specifically, black tea or white tea, but it did have a tea taste rather than just steeped spices. The spices were a general chai spice taste with none being prominent. Overall, quick, decent, easy, comforting chai.
