A review of Organic Masala Chai Tea by David Rio

Date: 11/06/2012
Company: David Rio
Tea Name: Organic Masala Chai
Tea Type/ Chai
Region: India
Steeping Vessel/Amt. Leaf: cup/ fine powder
Plucking Season:
Liquor Color: warm caramel
Leaf Characteristics:

  1. Steepings

1st Steeping:
Water temperature: 200 Fahrenheit
Time: 5 minutes

Note: I wanted a cup of this spice milky tea today since I was thinking for having a cup of cacao, purely. I took one teaspoon of the sweetly fine powder and add this in my mug and pour the very hot water and stir and stirred until the granules were evenly blended /disappearing in my cup.

I sip and sip this tea which is so warm and sweet. All the warm, spicy sweet flavors of traditional masala chai are in this blend that I have fixed for myself: there is the cinnamon, ginger and clove vying for attention with the cardamom seemingly in the background cloying at my taste buds.

This tea is such a delight on this very cold day and I feel somewhat secured while holding this cup of warmth in my hand. I am sorry as I finish this chai and so to passes the moment of having obtained creature comfort/ bliss even, if only for a few moments.

There will have to be another time then, since there is more of this chai in its tin.

200 °F / 93 °C 5 min, 0 sec

I enjoy a lovely cup of tea most days,and I like sharing my tea experiences with the world. I have been doing this for most of two years now.

I am at that thresh hold, unsure of how to proceed and why. My blog page is there for viewing and I am thankful for the experience as I have been allowed. Thank you everyone, sorry to have failed by not writing a tea book. I simply could not do it. I simply could not.
