4 Tasting Notes
I agree that the orange flavor is somewhat lost in this, but adding some cream and sugar with two tea bags seeping through consumption made the spice in this tea stand out for me. When prepared this way, I thoroughly enjoyed it.
I haven’t tasted a variety of brands of chai tea, but I love this one. I sometimes drink it instead of coffee in the morning, adding cream and sweetener. I have tried preparing it the traditional way (with the directions on the label), but It seems to come out bland each time.
This is the tea that brought me to this site, to find out why my
half-and-half had gone awry when mixed with it. I found my answer, and while researching was surprised to see the majority of positive reviews.
My first sip of this tea was not what I was expecting, thinking then that it would taste as fruity as it smelled. But now, after my third cup of it this week, Passion is starting to grow on me.
I now take the bag out after a few minutes of steeping, instead of sipping with the bag left in place as I had done before. I also add a sparing amount of sweetener and it turns the pungent sour into something sweet and irresistible.
On the other hand, I drink this tea in the evening and would rather not add anything to it (like excess carbs I don’t need before bed), but I am imagining it as a great afternoon iced treat, easily consumed like fruity confection.
Normally I shy away from the black cherry flavor, but this smelled so great when it steeped that I couldn’t stop sipping.
