drank Chocolate Chai by Adagio Teas
243 tasting notes

Today being the cold and long day that it was, I was starting to get comfortable under some blankets watching TV while starting to fall asleep. It being barely 8pm, I decided that couldn’t happen. I brewed up some of my dirty chocolate chai with a slight twist: bring water to boil in a pot, add 1/2 tsp rock sugar, dissolve, add 2 tsps chocolate chai, let boil 3 minutes, lower temperature, add 1 tsp instant coffee (I know, I apologize, but desperate times call for desperate coffee), let cook one minute, add milk to taste, let warm through (about 20 seconds), strain and enjoy.

Blasphemous? Possibly. Delicious? Definitely. Best of all, I am wide awake and warm to the bone. Enjoy!

Freakin love this! Not blasphemous at all! But even better things are coming for you in the chai department- you ain’t drank nothin’ yet! TEAhe;)

i am so excited for that chocolate chai, i feel i can deplete this stash now, haha :)

Cofftea

I think this one is good for a regular chai, not feeling the chocolate so much though.

I picked up the chocolate chai sample recently but I haven’t tried it yet…this is a good reminder to make a point to do that! Maybe tomorrow…

the chocolate in the adagio chocolate chai is VERY mild, there is only a slight chocolatey/malty aftertaste of chocolate, i would call it more chai with a little chocolate, but that’s probably too long of a name.

This is some sort of telepathy given the conversation I was having with Cofftea a few hours ago.
I will be adding some chocolate to my chai tonight to see what happens. Oh and its about 100 degrees F hotter here

chocolate and chai are universally wonderful, so everyone who has had them together always talks about them :). and it’s that hot out, wow, enjoy the chai, i probably couldn’t enjoy it as much if it was so hot…

Cofftea

Cinoi, when it’s hot steep the chai in 1/3 cup water, cool, and freeze. Once frozen, add 2/3 cup milk to a blender w/ the chai ice, and blend. Top w/ whipped cream? You can also add ice cream, but if you do I suggest making the chai ice 2x strength or the ice cream will dilute the chai flavor:)

@cofftea—That sounds wonderful!

@cofftea, definitely going to have to try this, should I aim to use plain chai or will the chocolate chai work?

Cofftea

Oh definitely use Mayan Chocolate Chai- it has me spoiled. That’s the only black based chai I’ll be drinking from now on:)

Bio

I am a sarcastic perfectionist, a computer nerd, a game geek, an avid reader, a gadget guru, a wine (and tea) enthusiast, and (in my spare time) a chemist.

As I mentioned, I am a chemist, research and development to be exact, so when evaluating tea, it is much like evaluating my products: I will find the flaws and do my very best to fix them because it is what I love to do. Along those lines, nothing is perfect, but can have perfect qualities, I will highlight those also.

I made a preliminary guide to my rating scale:
0-19 – Did not like anything about the tea, feel it cannot be saved without being reformulated.
20-40 – Did not like the tea, it can be saved with extreme amounts of tweaking (i.e., sugar, milk, honey and or blending with another tea)
41-60 – Neutral about the tea, it can be helped or hurt by additives or blends, varied temperatures and steep times
61-70 – Decent tea, needs a little bit of help to get it in the place I like it, but definitely not out of reach
71-80 – Quality tea, liked it, will try again
81-90 – Really enjoyed the tea, high quality, will continue to drink the tea, not looking for something better
91-100 – Loved the tea, will continue to brew and drink and spread the word about the tea to everyone
