Very nice for a tea bag Chai. Drinking it this morning with a bit of honey and milk and it comes out lovely with rich spice flavor and a fairly complex blend of spices. It’s got a nice cinnamon and ginger taste with a nice balance of cardamom and subtle anise (not usually fond of anise, but I like it here). Doesn’t hurt that it’s all fair trade organic too. It’s a very nice alternative to powdered Chai mixes when I’m traveling and can’t really lug all the tea gear about. It also didn’t get bitter on me despite having to nuke the water in the microwave for a few minutes because the hot water dispenser was pretty weak. Definitely taking this on future travels for ease of use.
2 Tasting Notes
Really lovely morning tea. Drinking it with a little honey and milk and the hazelnut flavor is definitely quite prominent. The spice notes are a little flat or overwhelmed though, and it doesn’t taste too much like a chai. It does have some spice notes, but the spice isn’t quite balanced with the hazelnut. Quite pleasant tea nonetheless, but those looking for the spice that usually goes with a Chai might be a bit disappointed.
