The thing that really hooked me in about this tea is the smell – it’s crazy good. I found it steeped best at the recommended time of 5 minutes – any less and it’s not quite strong enough to stand up to milk. But when it’s done right, it’s a delicious cup of tea. Best with milk and a bit of sugar to really bring out the maple flavour and add creaminess – it’s like dessert in a mug.
I really want to try boiling this tea in milk on the stove, the traditional chai way, to see how it tastes. I have high hopes!
