This is a bagged tea that I bought this summer on a lark.

I brewed this according to the manufacturer’s instruction: boiling water, steep for four minutes. Both of which seem reasonable to me.

The tea brews with a pleasant aroma of cinnamon, anise, and that “chai spice” smell that reminds me of ginger and cardamon.

While this is described as a roasted green tea, I couldn’t discern any flavor of green tea, or roasted green tea. I would describe the flavor as being a thin form of the aroma with a hint of mild black tea.

The flavor was enhanced with a small amount of sweetener, but milk (2% in this case) did nothing to hurt or improve the taste.

For a bagged tea with “chai spices” I would say that it was mildly enjoyable, but nothing I would ever crave to buy again. It had a nice Christmas/Thanksgiving flavor, so I might suggest that with a bit of sweetener it would go best with a dessert, say carrot cake or shortbread.
