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.

Excellent! One of the best teas I’ve ever had. Clearly, it was delivered to us by the hands of the gods themselves. Would stockpile, order online, or kill to get more.

60-80
Good, and will keep stocked in my shelf if convenient.

40-60
Okay, nothing special.

20-40
Not very good. Would accept out of politeness, and then add too much sugar to mask the taste.

0-20
Bleh. I would rather drink mud.
