Added rock sugar, milk and a teaspoon more of tea then I normally would for the cup and it tasted like hot chocolate. It has a very strong chocolate smell to it as well. I’m definitely stocking up come fall.

I was expecting more of a kick from this tea, but it’s a surprisingly mild-mannered chai, despite the visual presence of peppercorns and chili pieces. It is a bit thin-tasting, but not unpleasantly so. All in all, it’s more like a cocoa with a pepper taste to it, but I wouldn’t call it spicy. It’s not bad, just that I prefer other chocolate chai blends.
It doesn’t have a very strong flavor, but I still like it on a cold, snowy day. I’m on my second tin of it now. I’ve found that using two teaspoons and steeping for about 5-6 minutes is ideal. Second steepings are too weak and a waste of time for this one. Very good with a pinch of sugar and a splash of milk. It’s not as spicy as I usually like. I’ve thought of adding a pinch of cayenne to it. I like super spicy stuff!
I’m glad that the peppercorns and spicier ingredients are mellow. This is definetely chocolate-y tasting, and while I do like chocolate, I think chocolate teas aren’t my thing. However, for those people who like that sort of thing, I definately reccomend this tea for you.
Yum. I dig the way this tastes like chocolate, but feels like chilli, if you know what I mean. The chillies in this are very warming and you can feel it in your throat. Probably not very enjoyable if you’re not a fan of spicy foods on the whole. Also, this is strictly a wintertime tea for me, and I want nothing to do with it in Summer. I’d still rank it up there as one of my favourites, though.
