Okay, I’ve had this tea for a while, I’ve just not posted it up here before because I’m lazy. Sue me. ;P

Anyway, this chai is by far my favorite chai of all time. You never forget your first love. :) The black tea probably could be of a higher quality, but I don’t mind that because if it was, it might take away from the wonderfully balanced spices, which are my favorite part. _ Seriously, these people have it right. They make this blend in-house, and I’ve never had a more well-balanced chai, ever. The Indian Chai from Butiki Teas came close, but not close enough. The cardamom notes are just right, and it’s just cinnamon-y enough without being overwhelming, there’s anise there but in the background (not a big fan of anise), there’s even a few hints of nutmeg, and the CLOVES. Oh, the cloves. drools I really can’t wait until winter so I can have an excuse to drink this every day. It’s not fruity, it’s got no vanilla flavoring, it’s just pure unadulterated spicy sweet goodness. Like getting a big whiff of allspice or pumpkin pie spice—it just hits you in your whole face all at once. _____

I dunno if you remember, but a long time ago I replied to a forum post you made about this chai, lamenting that I had never tried it back when I lived in Birmingham. Well, when I went back to visit my family over Christmas, I stopped by to pick some of this up, and wow, it really is something special. Thanks for turning me on to it! I just wish I could order it online; I didn’t buy near enough when I was there.


I know I’m replying a little late, but I’ve been out of town a lot, and I haven’t had much time to myself to get on here. I’m so pleased that a fellow Steepsterite has also tried this tea! I feel so biased sometimes, and it’s nice to know that I’m not the only one who finds this tea really good. :) I’m glad you like it, genuinely!
