I’ve been drinking this all morning while watching the small dog that showed up on my porch. The little guy/girl seems to be quite friendly and socialized pretty well. It’s an older dog but looks like it has been well taken care of previously. I believe it’s a she, and she likes kids. She got rather excited when my daughter joined me on the porch. I really wonder why is she meandering around the neighborhood looking lost. Did someone just drop her off and leave her here? Perhaps she is a beloved pet and got away on a walk about. Any who on to the tea.
Cinnamon, clove and cardamom are well represented with a spicy kick of pepper to top it off. It’s very well behaved. I didn’t find it to be bitter or particularly astringent. I found a sweet flavor that I’m going to blame on the ginger, orange peels or nutmeg. Maybe all three are responsible. This a well balanced chai and made for a comfortable cup.
