I tried this as my last free beverage at the hotel, as a double double too (two creams, two sugars). Steepsterites have heard me rave in the past about a local chai bar that makes the best chai ever, and how everything else mega pales in comparison, so I was expecting this to crash and burn.
It so did not crash and burn at all. Way better than expected. Usually the chai you get at restaurants taste slightly bitter and extremely watered, or even milked (?), down. Here, I was able to distinctly taste cinnamon and liquorice. Very nice combination. The liquor looked pure white. I kept steeping and steeping it, trying to draw out as much flavour as possible, and despite the white colour, which led me to believe it would be weak, it was like drinking a creamy cinnamon candy.
It doesn’t sweep me off my feet, but it’s decent. TH spicy teas in general seem the most promising.
