drank Spiced Chai by Whittard of Chelsea
2469 tasting notes

brewed this strong in 3/4 cup water and used to make my instant whole grain cream of wheat (based on Samantha’s suggestion of making oatmeal with tea). This gave the otherwise tasteless gruel a nice hint of cinnamon & spice that complemented the whole grain nuttiness. With some milk, sugar, and raisins I had an edible and healthy breakfast. Also got a burst of energy after – maybe from the caffeine? Will def experiment more w/ cooking with this and other teas (ex. cooking rice in green or jasmine tea, etc.)

I’ve also made banana chai cake with this tea using this recipe: http://www.teachef.com/view_recipe.html?recipe=457

[[Note: I’m cooking with this tea instead of drinking it b/c my bag is very old, and I don’t like heavily spiced chai or heavily caffeinated black teas anyway. If you like chai that is heavy on the cinnamon you may like this one.]]
