I don’t know why, but I’ve always been weirdly intimidated by chai teas. I guess I thought they were just ~ too intense. ~ :P I decided to grab 25g of this from DavidsTea when I was there today, to see if I could handle it.
The smell is really nice. I actually picked this tea over the other ones because the scent was more complex. Steeped, the smell is still really nice – quite a bit of clove and cinnamon, but not scary.
I drank it with milk and sugar. I like to sweeten my teas anyways, and although I’m trying to wean myself off milk in tea I thought I’d try it the first time. The taste is quite spicy, but in a really nice way. The spices are all getting along well, and the cinnamon and clove kind of sticks around a bit.
