drank Rooibos Chai by Harney & Sons
302 tasting notes

Harney’s sent me a 1 cup teabag sample of this tea with my last order. I’m not a big fan of chai, so it’s taken me a while to get around to trying this one. And, unexpectedly, I like it. It’s not overly spiced and the rooibos isn’t overwhelming. It’s a nice lightly spiced rooibos with cinnamon, clove, and cardamom flavors. I added a couple of tablespoons of rice milk and no sweetener (can you believe that?). I sweeten almost all teas so I was surprised to find that I like this unsweetened. Perhaps that is what I need to do with all chais (add no sweetener).

Preparation

I can’t see rice milk and chai together w/o shuddering. I’ve only had authentic chai (at an Indian restaurant run by an Indian family) once, but it was horrible. It tasted like cardamom steeped in EXTREMELY scorched chocolate rice milk. I couldn’t drink it.

Well, rice milk isn’t my fav, but i get it super cheap at costco and it’s what I bring to work.
