This is my favorite nite-time chai. No rooibos to dilute the flavor. Just a blend of whole spices so this is high quality. And tastes like chocolate….This is not hot spicy just a well-rounded chai flavor.
This chai smells so wonderful! I love that it’s an herbal chai so you can drink it anytime day or night, and of course I’m a fan of cocoa nibs.
At first sip, I get a rush of chocolate that mellows into a very nice, (not too strong), spicy flavor. The finish has a punch of cardamom to it that lingers in your mouth.
I quite like this tea. Unfortunately, after I had my first cup and I visited the CTH website for more information, and I found that white chocolate pieces had been added to the ingredient list for this tea. D’oh, white chocolate often has a dairy component and I can’t have the dairy in my teas. I’ve emailed CTH in the hopes that the white chocolate they use is non-dairy which isn’t common but does exist. I really hope I can have this tea again because it’s delish.Update: I heard back from CTH and the white chocolate pieces that they have recently added to this blend ARE VEGAN!!!! \o/
When I smelled this tea I was worried that it would be a bit too much spice.
Drinking it is a nice smooth flavor. I am very happy with the taste. Little bit of sweet, little bit of spice. I was expecting more chocolate because I sensed it in the smell… but not too much chocolate here. Overall, a nice smooth cup that reminds me of Christmas!
Thank you so much, Lori!
