Finally got around to trying this one and..hmm..I’m not sure about it!
The heat is wonderful. Wonderful! This is what I always hope for when I see that there is chili in a tea. It actually gives me that oh-my-god-it’s-burning-my-mouth feeling that I crave from spicy food. Don’t get me wrong, it wasn’t out of this world spicy, but it has a really nice kick for a tea, especially considering that I’m usually disappointed by teas with chilis or peppercorns because they never quite have the bite that I’m expecting.
My only real gripe with this tea is that I’m not really smitten with the mango flavouring they’ve used. Mango is kind of a hit or miss flavour with me, and in this case I found it a little cloying and artificial tasting. Not enough that I didnt want to finish my cup, but I don’t think I’ll be stocking up. The spice is soo good though!! It’s the kind of heat I wish was in blazing strawberries, or as DaisyChubb said, in chocolate chili chai. Why can’t more spicy teas pack this much of a punch?
