drank Masala Chai by Souvia
28 tasting notes

I love Starbucks Chai latte and Souvia said this was their spiciest Chai tea. I think I steeped this tea a little too long, 3min 20secs. I think 3min would be the best because I can taste a little bit of bitterness. Unfortunately I only had enough to make one cup.

The taste is good. I can taste the cardamom which is nice. I added lots of sugar getting ready to make a latte but wanted to try it first without the creamer. Its ok with the creamer.

If I didn’t have to order this online I think I would get it again to try other ways to make it.

Thanks for the review Jacque – This is our most popular Chai and many people do make it into a latte. If you like it spcier, consider the Red Chai which is a rooibos base.

Thank you for the suggestion. I will try it. How do you suggest to turn this into a Latte? Maybe I am not using the best ratio.

We brew it stronger than normal (more tea not more time) then blend with milk (your choice) and sweetener (we like honey) – Kerstin showed how to make a “guiltless latte” on Sonoran Living a while back – clip is here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oAHPywWvDMA or just search for Souvia and Latte on Youtube

Bio

I’ve been drinking tea for the past 35 years but only recently have I found ‘good’ tea. I am starting to become a tea ‘snob’ and I am ok with that. Why waste my time on bad tea?

I am in the process of developing a business plan to open up my own tea business, Bee-Tea. I will be attending the World Tea Expo and the New Business Boot Camp. Follow me at www.Facebook.com/BeeTeaCompany to watch me grow.

I also teach various aerobics classes at 24HourFitness and the YMCA to keep in shape and I am a software developer by trade.
