I was drinking this one yesterday afternoon while it rained. I was planning on rating it then but got caught up talking to friends on skype.

This is a really well balanced chai. It has nice dark leaves, clove, cardamom, pieces of ginger. I didn’t have any whole star anise in this pot but the flavor is there. It is very fragrant dry and after brewing. It is a rich deep orange steep and takes milk and sugar well.

I was brewing a large pot (1L/33oz) so I ended up using 4 tsp of this tea and 1 tsp of a ceylon because I enjoy this tea and i am trying to conserve it bit. It didn’t make any difference to the flavor as when I have brewed it uncut before.

I find it pretty similar to Tazo but less peppery. A very enjoyable tea.

Grew up in Texas, lived and worked in Australia and New Zealand for a year. Now I am back stateside and living in Oregon. I drink most any kind of tea but blacks are my favorites.

“Tea is the taste of my land: it is bitter and warm, strong, and sharp with memory. It tastes of longing. It tastes of the distance between where you are and where you come from. Also it vanishes—the taste of it vanishes from your tongue while your lips are still hot from the cup. It disappears, like plantations stretching up into the mist.” Little Bee (Chris Cleave)
