3 Tasting Notes

85
drank Chai by T2
3 tasting notes

So THIS is the tea that started my love affair with loose leaf tea (well, who am I kidding? Tea in general!!). I was lured in by its spicy scent and when on tasting at T2 it was brewed with vanilla soy milk and honey. I am now NEVER without vanilla soy in my cupboard.

I find this tea can be hit and miss. Sometimes it can be perfect, and other times, a bit meh.
The cloves do tend to over pow3er and i have taken to the habit of culling some of the cloves and this definately improves my chance of making an awesome chai.

I make this 2 ways: 50% water 50% vanilla soy milk heat milk and water separetely and brew for 3-5 min while adding honey to taste.
50% water 50% vanilla soy millk on a stove top while adding honey. Brew for about 5 min. Do not let boil!

OH MY GOD!! So I fear that I will no longer be satisfied with a mere push botton kettle!! You can set the temprature, and when using the basket function can choose how long you wish the tea to steep for. There is a keep warm function (perfect for winter days :D). and you can set it so that it will start brewing automitcally (for when you need a bit of a push to get out of bed in the mornings).
SO, SO glad that I have this in my possession and recommend it to all those tea fiends out there ;)

I came accross white dragon when I was at a market and loved the creamy taste. This one was a little stronger than the first one that I bought, but with some playing around with a bit, was reminded as to why white dragon is my staple oolong!!
