My mum got my dad a Twinings wooden compartment box full of teabags for Christmas – the tea love runs in the family :) I was in the mood for chai, so I thought I’d give this one a try.

I made it with milk and sugar – chai is always better that way, in my experience. This tea isn’t as strong as most chai blends I’ve tried before, there’s less emphasis on the spices, and the flavour is quite balanced between the maltiness of the Assam and the sweetness of the cloves, with cinnamon being more of a background note. I can’t really detect any other flavours such as orange peel, will have to steep for longer next time and see if that makes a difference.

I’m Kat. When I was eleven I decided I wanted to drink green tea, and that’s where it all began :)

I work part-time in a conference centre, I just graduated from university and I miss working in a tea bar so, so much.

I will drink pretty much anything except rooibos, and I have a cupboard full of tea to prove it. I’ve been known to convert people to tea, my boyfriend is hooked on Yunnan blacks at the moment and I’ve just got my dad started on pu-erh :)

Favourite teas are Japanese greens, ‘green’ oolongs, Darjeelings, Earl Grey and citrus-flavoured greens.

One day, I will have my own tea shop.
