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 an Oriental Spice tea – premium Ceylon black tea with a unique blend of spices; cinnamon, cardamom, and ginger.

Tasty, but not out of this world. Mild spice and citrus. Good for 2-3 infusions.

I liked it. But it could had a little more of a kick with the spice. Still a very good black tea.

Because of the spices I measure this by the teaspoon instead of weight. 1 heaping teaspoon steeped for 5 min in purified boiling water or simmering milk, I like chocolate milk. Serve unsweetened.

For a dirty chai, add 2oz cold brewed coffee concentrate to 4oz boiling water or simmering milk. You can also add hot cocoa mix added after steeping.

There’s good chai, and there’s bad chai. This is bad chai. Something is really strong in it, and it’s something I obviously don’t like a lot of. Almost bitter. There isn’t “chai” in the name, but this is definitely a chai tea. But if that’s what you want, do yourself a favor and buy one of their actual chai teas. This is a redundant waste of product space in my opinon- I’d rather they take this out and put something more interesting and unique in it’s place.

For a dirty chai, add 2oz cold brewed coffee concentrate to 4oz boiling water or simmering milk. This is also VERY good w/ hot cocoa mix added after steeping.

To make it chilled, make a large batch using as little water as possible to make a concentrate, chilling, then using milk to fill the liquid discrepency. If desired, add proper amount of coffee concentrate for the amount you’re making and reduce water/milk that amount according to compensate for the coffee. If serving it over ice, make ice cubes from more tea or tea steeped in milk. I prefer it blended when iced.
