Recent Tasting Notes
My internet was borked and I only got it back now, so this is from early this morning.
I hadn’t had this tea in awhile and decided to remedy that tragic oversight. This is still the best chai I have ever drank. I’m definitely ordering a refill for this puppy when it runs out. :)
This tea smells great. As soon as the hot water hit the tea, I could immediately smell it from a few feet away.
I had two cups of this (I tend to make at least two cups at a time whenever I make tea).
With the first, I was actually eating some indian food (Chicken Tika Masala and Whole Wheat Naan). The spices seem to overpower the actual black tea. Very distinctive cinnamon taste. Can’t say I know what cardamon tastes like, so I don’t know how much of a presence it made.
I also tried it with milk (fat free though, since that is all I have at the moment). Seemed to smooth the flavor a bit, although regular milk may work better. I don’t usually put milk in my tea though, so I don’t know if that is the case.
One thing I noticed, is that the flavor seemed to dull as the tea cooled off.
Pretty good for when I want some black tea, but don’t quite want it to taste like a black tea.
