A pleasant little chai. The dry leaves smell only of cinnamon. I like that I can actually taste the black tea when this is brewed. It’s easy for chai spices to overtake the taste of the tea itself, but because this only has cinnamon and “natural flavor,” there’s no risk of that. This would be perfect for someone who finds strong chai overwhelming or has an aversion to pepper or cardamom. It’s a bit weak for my taste, though.
I can’t wait to steep this in simmering milk. I find that really concentrates the spicy flavor. I might also try blending it with David’s Pumpkin Chai, which I thought really lacked any sort of spice.
