Chaiday 6 of 6:
Let me start by saying that I am a tea lightweight. I usually only drink 3 teas a day. I knew it was going to be crazy of me to try 6 in one day, but I really want to make some headway into my stash reviews.
I knew that at this point, with my blood made more of cinnamon and black tea than platelets, that I would be tired of tasting and reviewing chai. Even now, the idea of Christmas spices makes me want to run and hide. However, I promised that I would review 6 chais today, so the show must go on.
This tea has always smelled wonderful to me. The blend smells spicy and sweet. I’m wondering what the leaves are coated with—they’re sticky with whatever it is. The spice is nice and strong, and the base makes itself well-known. There’s also a sweet, kind of caramel flavor. I’m glad the orange isn’t too strong, as I like to stay away from citrus, as you’ve probably heard by now.
Flavors: Caramel, Cardamon, Cinnamon, Clove, Ginger
