This is really damn good.

I have to admit, I haven’t had many chais, but I really do enjoy this. The cardamon is the dominent note. The fragrance and taste are very classic chai.

If you’ve ever wanted to summon the spirit of Christmas in 8 minutes flat, brew yourself a pot of this. It’s the perfect wintery bliss.

I will be ordering more of this from Adagio. I’ll also be ordering a few other brands and blends for comparison.

As with most chai, this is good with milk or cream and a bit of sweetener. My preference is 4 parts chai, 1 part soy milk, and a tblsp of agave nectar. A common way to drink chai is half and half, chai to milk.

I think this benefits from a longer steep time. I tried it at 5, 6, 7 and 8 minute steeps. The latter was my preference.

Preparation
180 °F / 82 °C 8 min or more
