So my Saturday plans for the day were all cancelled, and I was ambitious. I tried doing this one on the stovetop. Little did I know how much of a horror it would be to clean up after letting the pot boil over. Oops.
The tea itself surprised me. I’ve always really liked how this one brewed tastes different to me than what I’d expect from the dry leaf. I get more of the spices and less of the stronger notes. I expected some difference in a stovetop brew but it tasted exactly like it smells dry. Exactly. Still not sure how I feel about that, but for my first stovetop chai attempt it was fairly successful. Cleanup on the other hand . . .
