Hmm. When I think of chai, I think of chai with a black tea base. To me, this doesn’t really make me think of chai but of hot, sugary cinnamon water with a hint of pepper and maybe a slight aftertaste of some fruitiness (perhaps the pineapple). I don’t really taste the tea or much else for that matter.
That being said, I really like hot & sugary cinnamon water.
—Tastes like red hots, yum!
—No worries about steeping time: I just leave a bag of this in my cup and let it continue steeping until I’m done drinking. No bitterness ensues.
—All the spiciness really helps clear my head in the morning!
—I don’t taste tea so I keep thinking this is just herbal and I’m tempted to drink it any old time. In fact, it tastes so good, of course I want to drink it at night, in bed, with a good book. This may lead to insomnia. We’ll see.
There are probably other good cinnamon teas or tisanes out there, but this one is mighty tasty so I’ll probably restock. I wonder what this is like cold brewed or iced. I will have to try that soon.
