Backlog from yesterday night
This is an interesting chai tea and as its name suggests it, this is a Rwandan tea. Which is rarer than a chai made on an Indian tea base .
We immediately see by the size and type of leaves that we are dealing with a Rwandan tea. The leaves are super short , with a chocolate colour and have almost a circle shape.
We have lovely and nice mixed spices : ginger, cinnamon, cardamom, cloves and pink berries
I opted for an Indian style of preparation because of the gloomy weather. I got so a barely beige liquor.
This chai had not a very strong flavor , spices are present, very mixed, difficult to feel each one separately. Cardamom is nonetheless a little more present in this chai .
I’m not super excited . I much preferred Anichaï of Dammann Frères too . I love an heavy spice chai , this one was very discreet.
But my cat loved it :)
