Light on aroma but not on taste! This is very nice! The spices are JUST RIGHT for me! The cinnamon is a little bit stronger than the ginger. The cardamom and cloves are in there too as well as the black pepper. I appreciate they are not too strong. I can taste floral notes as well! The rose petals are a nice touch. The vanilla is noticeable in the middle of the sip and more-so as it cools. This is a good chai, indeed!
