I first tried this chai in-house. It was quite delightful, especially with the little chunks of rock sugar they offer.

At home, it’s not quite as good. Maybe it’s something about someone serving you tea vs. making it yourself. I like the spice mix. The tea itself is meh. If I could get this spice mix in a David’s Tea or Shanti tea, I think I would have my perfect chai.

EDIT: I tried this a little later on in the day with a half mug of steamed milk, lots of sugar and half a mug of tea. Much better. Almost close to perfect maybe. Increased the rating a little bit.

Yesterday, a friend and I tried the mini high tea at Adonia Tea House in Vancouver, BC. It’s a quaint little place with a 2 page menu of teas and very delicious little sandwiches and desserts. Once we were done, I bought the chai that I had there and this latte macchiato tea to try at home.

The ingredients listed are black tea, coffee, yogurt crispies and flavouring. The yogurt crispies freaked me out a little, but it turned out that they’re “flakes” of yogurt. Another thing…if you’re a tea house that’s selling loose tea on the side, it’s a very good idea to label the amount of tea to be steeped and the steeping time.

Turns out that this tea is really, really good. Only a slight hint of coffee and a nice creaminess from the yogurt flakes. It really does taste like a latte version of black tea, even with just a tiny bit of added milk and a teaspoon of sugar (because I wanted something sweet).

I’m really curious about if this tea is imported from Germany as is, or if the tea house makes this blend in house. It’s all repackaged with the store branding, so I can’t figure out who the original manufacturer is.
