The first time I drank this tea, I steeped it for 5 minutes in a mug with boiled water. I didn’t follow the directions that recommend brewing it in a pot on the stove. Infused this way, the only spice I could taste was the cardamom and it wasn’t as spicy as I would like.
Then I tried brewing it the way the company recommends in half water and half milk for 5 minutes on the stove. It’s still not very spicy. This time I can taste other spices than the cardamom, but I was expecting something stronger. It’s good for people who like very mild chaï.
