I have limited Samovar experiences. (HINT HINT…if anyone has some extra Samovar Blends I would LOVE to do a swap…)
Anyhow…because the spicy chai aroma was so VERY intense when I first open the package I decided to do a little less loose leaf that I usually do. It was about a half to 3/4 T worth in a 12-ounce cup – usually I do about twice that…I like my stuff strong…but chais are often UNpredictable so I have decided to play with them a bit.
The color is a pale medium brown. A little cloudy but it doesn’t have a texture or murkiness to it.
Eventho the scent of the cuppa is FULL OF SPICE the taste isn’t as intense and I am grateful. Most of the ingredients hold hands nice but I can taste the cardamom a little bit more out in front than the rest.
This is ok. I’m glad I infused the amount I did. It worked out well.
