The moment you tear the top off the bag and open it up you know this tea is going to be a lovely, decadent treat. The spice of the vanilla chai and the chocolate mix fantastically to create a warm blanketing scent. Unsurprisingly when it’s brewed it smells even lovelier. While this tea is wonderful plain without anything added, I do take my chai with a bit of milk. I find this makes the taste a bit smoother and really gives it that chocolate-y dessert feeling. This tea really does embody everything I adore about Mycroft as a character. Sweet like the treats he loves so much, like the soft inside he clearly has when dealing with family. Yet, spicy like his snarky comments and demeanour.
