9 Tasting Notes
Blech. Sorry, Kate, your Royal Wedding blend tastes like old lady perfume (or what I imagine the Queen herself would taste like in tea form) — the bergamot completely overwhelms.
Holy moly! Now THIS is the chai I’ve been dreaming of — the nose of the dry leaves is divinely spicy and complex and follows through in the aroma of the steep. I was not disappointed at first sip … looking forward to trying this with honey and milk, to further develop this tea’s potential.
Man, I really wanted this one to be a punch in the face … but all I got was a pinch of the cheeks.
Mmm, zingy! A good afternoon pick-me-up without the caffeine.
Another “meh.” Promising aroma from the dry leaves — a nice spiciness — that just doesn’t match up when steeped. Overwhelmed by the cinnamon in this one. With some balance, it could be better.
I was skeptical, cos the dry leaves had an overwhelming, cloying aroma — but once steeped, it’s a decent, nutty mate.
This is a pretty kick-ass chai. I’m betting it would fare even better with the balance of some milk, but I enjoyed it on its own. I would dial down the cinnamon a bit, but over all this is a very nice and spicy cup of tea.
