Smells light in chai spice, interestingly smoky or maybe it’s malty (still not sure what that is) and stronger in ginger than I would have expected in a tea that has a chocolate chai(I did not taste chocolate). When it cools it taste and smells like spiced apple cider. My husband loves chai and I meant to make this and share with him. That didn’t happen. I’m so confused, I finished my surprise sample from MissB because I keep trying to figure it out(about a month ago). I saved less than half a teaspoon so I could try it later and hopefully figure it out and later was tonight and I still have not figured it out. I like it, I think I just made it harder than it needed to be. Thanks MissB!
