I bought a cup of this in-store, so I cannot remember how long the steep time was, nor do I know the water temperature. I tried it with a tiny scoop of German rock sugar because I like my chai sweet, although I wish that I had some milk or soy milk to go with it.

To me, the cinnamon is the most prominent flavor. I am not familiar with maté, and my knowledge of rooibos is limited, but I must say that this is a pleasant blend. I have read that maté contains carcinogens, so I probably won’t drink it again, but it is a warm, flavorful blend that reminds me of autumn.

Bio

I’m a long-time Anglophile and a relatively new tea drinker, slowly building up my knowledge of the deliciousness that is a cuppa.

I love robust black teas that I can drink with milk. I’m a milk-in-first kind of gal. A strong cuppa is one of my favorite ways to start the day. My absolute favorite is Barry’s Gold Blend. I am also very fond of herbal teas, especially soothing blends before bedtime. I enjoy green tea for its health benefits, although I have yet to master a proper brew for it. I especially like jasmine green tea. I am not very familiar with white, rooibos, honeybush, or pu-erh teas, although I hope to taste more of them. I am awfully fond of rooibos with milk and sugar, but it has been quite some time since I found one as good as my first cup.

I am always on the lookout for delicious, affordable teas, especially those that are fair trade and/or organic.
