When Blue Lotus Chai contacted me to inform me of their two new flavors, well you know I just had to try them! This is one that I was REALLY EXCITED about because … well, I actually had recommended to them in my review of their Traditional Masala Chai that they add some Star Anise or Fennel to their Chai because I love the licorice-y taste. Well, they listened to me. (happy dance!) Here’s that review, in case you’re interested: http://sororiteasisters.com/2012/12/07/traditional-marsala-chai-from-blue-lotus-chai/
And this chai lived up to my expectations of their traditional masala chai with star anise. This is seriously good stuff. If you like Star Anise in your chai, you really MUST try this.
The spices are strong and fragrant and delicious. It is spicy, sweet, and has the zesty, snappy taste of star anise. I love this stuff. Here’s my full-length review of it: http://sororiteasisters.com/2013/08/20/star-anise-masala-chai-from-blue-lotus-chai/
