drank Masala Chai by Rishi Tea
10 tasting notes

I made this chai with boiling water and intentionally oversteeped it a bit before adding some 2% milk and honey. I have to say, I was a little disappointed. I brewed quite a bit, hoping for a strong batch, and found the chai couldn’t hold up very well in the flavor department.

The second time around, I heated the milk and chai in a pan, rather than brewing it in a pot. This improved the flavor, but still, i don’t think it is worth the price

In the future, i will probably just blend my own from loose spices, rather than buying this Rishi blend.

Having your own chai blend does sound like the way to go. Do you have a go to place for spices? I had been using Monterrey spice, but then one batch of cinnamon came in smelling strangely of sharpee markers- no fun.

I haven’t tried yet. There are loose spices from Frontier at some shops near my house, but that is all I have seen. I had some from India before, but they ran out, unfortunately
