Microwaved on high 2.5 minutes. Steeped for about 4 minutes. Tasted a little bitter, and kind of earthy. Added a hint of sugar, which I couldn’t taste, so I added a bit more. Then I added some milk, enough to turn it cloudy. Added one last bi of sugar, and I think it’s a decent flavor. With the added milk, it’s a pretty mild chai, but I like milder teas. Nice when I just need something warm and soothing to drink.
