Didn’t expect to dislike a chai, but there you go. I found this one to smell amazing dry, all the spices jumping out and bidding my senses hello. I was excited to taste it, and expecting to love it I added my milk and a tiny bit of sugar.
I’m going to have to try it without and black, because how I prepared it, what a let down. The cinnamon became more cinnamon heart and less pure spice, which just always seems fake to me. More disappointing though was that after the first jolt of flavour, each sip became practically tasteless. Big swallows or small sips, it was always the same. Bam, flavour, and then poof, nothing. I’d never heard of tea having its own chaser before, but there it was, with no followup!
I’m going to give this one another chance, because, well, I did go straight to the milk and sugar. But I really do think that the other chais are going to stay my favourites.
