This is a nice chai. Different from what I’m used to but I’m enjoying it a lot. I made this strong for my morning cup, lots of tea and a very long steep, with milk and sugar. There’s definitely your usual chai notes in this one, but the dominant flavour is cinnamon. I’m not surprised – there were big chunks of cinnamon bark visible in the leaf, and not really any other large spices visible. No bitterness or astringency even with a very long steep.
Not my favourite chai – I like a noticeable amount of pepper and a lot more cardamom, but I’ll definitely drink it again. And at $2.40 for 100g the price is right. It may become my go to if I just want to make a big pot of chai for sipping all day.
