Readers who have seen my previous reviews will know that I am constantly in search of the perfect chai. I think a good 40% of my tea stash consists of different chai blends. Many of them are good; they’re just not THE chai I’m searching for.
I knew this one probably wouldn’t be the one either, just because caramel and vanilla aren’t part of a true chai blend. I do, however, love anything sweet so I got this to satisfy the sweet tooth (or would that be sweet tastebud?). I made it today for the first time with a bit of sugar and about 1/4 mug of heated milk.
I can definitely taste the vanilla and the caramel. I can also tell it’s a chai blend. I’m not sure what I think yet. Acutally, no, I know what it is. I was expecting more desserty tea than chai, and so I’m still trying to get that expectation out of my head. It’s growing on me with every sip. I’m going to play around a bit with the milk to chai ratio next time, and maybe try brown sugar instead of white. My rating is more “to be decided” because I have a feeling that it’ll go up once I find the right balance for me.
