Still not sure how to rate this, made another batch with some Ceylon tea. And I still love the chai process, but oh this is not comparing too favourably with the tea which has made me crave chai: yesterday´s Chandernagor. Sadly since I was hoping to find a cheaper replacement for it since I had only got 50 grams of Chandernagor (it is not going to last very long) but the ginger is too dominant, the cardamom too rough, no way as smooth as what I was hoping to replace. Oh well.

But it is still very drinkable. And am now toying with the idea of trying to make my own chai spice.

Bio

Inconstant tea drinker – I mostly drink tea when not too hot. I hang around steepster much more frequently in (northern hemisphere) cold season.

- Teas -

I like all sorts of tea, flavoured and unflavoured, though I am picky. I am always willing to try anything new. I am now particularly interested in single origins.

I am one of those people who actually loves Lapsang Souchong. I am not crazy about Earl Grey, in general. I don´t quite get Darjeeling teas, but I am trying to make sure …

I like rooibos, though not all bases. I loathe hibiscus. I do not like fennel/liquorice/anise in blends or teas with chicory. I am picky about what I consider true cinnamon.

As you can probably tell from my cupboard, the brands I find more interesting right now are Mariage Fréres,Thé-o-Dor and Yumchaa.
