Very strong aroma of cinnamon, black pepper, cardamom and gloves right after getting the eta bag out of the wrapper.
Also very strong after steeping, very spicy, but with no trace of matcha (obviously, since it’s only 2% of the package). The whole aroma profile reminds me of roasted apples with spices. Very warming, very winter-y.
The taste is also fruity, but not with apple, rather with the orange peels. Plus obviously all the spice extravaganza along with the spicy bite from black pepper.

To sum up: very tasty warming tea made with fresh, aromatic ingredients. I wish it had ore proper tea, but it’s still great.

With my first brewing I wanted to drink it neat. Next time I’ll try to brew it in the proper chai way.

Edit: I brewed it in the proper chai way, sweet and with milk (rice milk; iI’m not vegan, but recently I somehow don’t like dairy in my teas and coffees).
And it’s delicious! Smoth, sweet, full-bodied, rich, with solid peppery spiciness and the rest of the spices. A perfect winter warmer.

I drink tea almost all the time.

However, my tea drinking can be divided into two main categories.

1. I work a lot at my computer and when I work, I need to always have tea at hand. That’s when I drink bag varieties, mostly black blends, often corporate ones. They need to be at least drinkable, of course, but I don’t focus on the taste much, though I don’t go below a certain level…

2. When I read (and read a lot) or when I’m just relaxing, I savor tea. That’s when the better varieties come into play, that’s when I use leafs instead of bags, that’s when I really focus on what I’m drinking.

I’m Polish, temporarily living in Copenhagen, Denmark.
