From Adagio Teas

To most Westerners, it is a little known fact that the word ‘Chai’ simply means ‘tea’ in Hindi. Therefore, all teas are technically chais. However, instead of the ‘chai’ that most Americans are used to (which usually contains really bad tea), we offer a Masala Chai tea – premium Ceylon black tea with a unique blend of spices; cinnamon, cardamon, and ginger.

I was so happy that Phil the groundhog saw his shadow because
1) I won a Chai Sampler from Adagio for guessing correctly
2) I get “6 more weeks” of hot tea drinking weather, with this being my first hot tea drinking season I don’t want it to end.

Before this obsession happened I only drank hot tea when I was sick and even then I would rather not. I mostly drank iced coffee and maybe hot 2 weeks out of the year. So I’m not sure where tea will fall in my life during the hot summer days in Texas.

I made this on the stove top for the husband and me this morning with brown sugar and milk. It was a nice cozy drink with a good amount of warming spice and it was free! The chai loving husband liked it so I may consider getting more but he seems to be just as happy with Stash’s Double Spice Chai teabag. I will have to try making it iced, my husbands favorite way to drink it.

I know it sounds weird but people all over the world drink hot tea all year around. I, myself, drink hot tea in the summer as well as iced tea.


I’m hoping I will at least enjoy a hot cup or 2 in the morning and at night even if I feel like I’m in a mini sauna with the humidity and the steam from the cup. I may have to crank the AC up a few times.

If you want a classic chai, this is it. It smells amazing out of the bag and the spices are warm and comforting but not overwhelming.

My favorite tea in the world :-)
Me and my son call it “yummitea” because that is what it is – yummi!

A warm, yummy, spicy chai that I always drink with milk and a bit of sweetener. Perfect for winter!

This one is more hit or miss than a lot of them. It’s good, but it’s fussy. Some days the cup is perfect, some days it just doesn’t quite live up to its smell.

I am forever on the hunt for a perfectly balanced chai, though to me this was not as smooth as Ineeka’s Ma-Chai? It was still both good and not so spicy I couldn’t taste anything correctly, very balanced.

The actual tea is not quite as strong as I’d hoped, but the balance of spices is great.

I really well rounded Chai, where you can taste all the different spices but none of them are too overpowering. I’ve tried a lot of Chais before and this is probably one of my favorites.

This blend of masala chai is pretty aggressively spiced, which I like. Some of my housemates say that the peppercorns are too aggressive in the tea. I’d say that this tea is pretty spicy, but the tea leaves have a sometimes unfortunate tendency to bitterness, even though I steeped it less than the recommended five minutes.

I might have to try again with a gentler brewing. Then again, I drank it straight without milk or sugar, so that might be a factor.
