Ruby Chai in the teabags is my favourite chai of all I’ve tried so far. I bought a bag of the loose leaf version, hoping it would be as good, but thinking it might be just powder. I’m really impressed with the contents of the bag though, it’s got loads of whole spices, including lots of cloves and lots of round things I don’t recognize, which I think might be all spice berries.
My senses of smell and taste are off today. I haven’t been enjoying things I usually love. I tried a cup of Teavana’s new black chai when I was out and threw it away because it might as well have been dish water. The cloves in this are penetrating my bunged up nose and I’m glugging this back very happily. I won’t leave a numerical rating as I can’t taste it properly, but it’s definitely clove-heavy, which suits me over stewed black tea or cinnamon.
