55 Tasting Notes
Very mild. I brewed this round for about a minute. I think next steep will be a couple minutes. Nice roasted flavors and rice aromas.
Subtle grassiness. Cough syrupiness. Medium green in color. Not much on the nose. It’s an ok tea to slurp in the afternoon as a little pick-me upper.
I steep this between 20-30 seconds in low temp water. 3-4 minutes below boiling.
I like to make this as a latte with SOY milk. I know some might argue it doesn’t bring out the same flavors as dairy milk because soy doesn’t have the same fat content that the spices like to cling to. The first time I had this was at Samovar and it was noticeably made with cows milk. I much prefer it made with soy. It’s better for you that way too.
2 cups boiling water.
2 small tbs of RAW cane sugar
2 large tbs of Masala Chai
simmer for just under 10 minutes
turn up the heat
add just under 2 cups of organic plain soy milk.
Bring to a boil until it starts to foam.
Shut the hit off and let it sit for 5-10 minutes.
I like to strain it into a pitcher and drink it all day long.
Great bedtime tea. Soothing, tasty, and just an all around feel good tea. Steeped with boiling water 5-6 minutes.
I enjoy the aroma more than the taste on this one. Pretty golden color. Steeped for 40 seconds just below boiling.
