Hot, hot, hot

Is winter giving you the shivers? Try this fiery southwest chai. A blend of black tea, chocolate and ancho and Aleppo chilis, it gives new meaning to the term “hot chocolate.” With its sweet, rich chocolate flavour and feisty finish, this bold blend is perfect base for the ultimate latte with a little frothed or steamed milk. If you really want to feel the heat, add a splash of cinnamon whisky. Arriba!

I’m not a huge Chai fan but this one is great. It does have a spicy kick, and smells chocolate-y. It can be quite strong but no bad aftertaste if you choose to brew it longer.

Nice tea with a bit of a kick. Wish the chocolate flavour was stronger.

Man, I really wanted this one to be a punch in the face … but all I got was a pinch of the cheeks.

I recently snagged a 100g tin of this for 50% off (one of the Christmas tins). Not a flavour I’d normally go for, but since it was on sale I decided to try it anyway!

It smells fantastic in the tin – super dark chocolate-y with a hint of spice. I have opened it up just to sniff a couple of times since buying it. Yum.

I wasn’t sure what to expect for taste, I figured it would be chocolate-y and quite spicy – not so much. I first tried making it as a latte – I really liked it this way, it tasted a lot like black tea but the milk really seemed to bring out the chocolate as well. Not very spicy at all – a bit of a tingle in the mouth but that was about it.

Tonight I made it again, this time steeped in water with a splash of milk before drinking. This way was fine, but much weaker, like drinking black tea with a hint of dark chocolate and not much spice at all. Don’t get me wrong, it was enjoyable enough, just not nearly as strong as I thought it would be (and I was pretty generous with my loose tea!).

I’m a bit confused about this one – it isn’t really what I thought it would be (and to be fair, I wasn’t totally sure what to expect in the first place), but I like it. I don’t think it is a tea I will be reaching for every day, but I know I will drink it again (in latte form at least!), most likely on a cold night or if I am craving chocolate.

Very weak flavor. I’ve tried it hot and cold and with cinnamon like the company recommend. Either way I just got a weird bland taste with a slight pepper after taste. Finally, I decided to mix it with some Adagio Chocolate Chip. It helped make the chocolate flavor stand out a little bit more, but besides the weird pepper after taste. I get none of the spiced that’s been promised. Definitely not David’s best.

Had a sample in-store today. Seemed kinda weak, so maybe they steeped it wrong. Didn’t strike me as “feisty” or anything special

Not really a fan.. maybe it’s the spice?

This one is good but very mild, I wish the flavour was stronger. Not really spicy, just a tiny hint of the chili – I was hoping for a bit more spice.

I’m not so sure how I felt about this tea, I received it as a gift for Christmas and it seems to have failed my expectations. I can’t describe how, but I expected it to be sweeter I guess. It’s somewhat tasty, but not. I’m just trying to finish the last couple cups from my bag, and I don’t plan repurchasing.

I’ve just finished my bag of this tea, and I was a little disappointed in it. I know it’s generally gotten and lot of love, and definitely a lot of hype. That probably has something to do with my disappointment. It just set the expectation a bit too high I suppose.

It’s not that there’s anything specifically wrong with it, so I can’t give it a failing grade. The chocolate comes through just fine, and the chili flavour does (provided you let it steep long enough). Once, in an effort to get a bit more chili kick I added a few dried chili flakes to the mix. Let’s just say I never did that again. In all seriousness though, I think the main thing I found a bit lacking was the chai itself. It just seemed a bit weak to me, and as much as I drank it I always found it to be a bit wanting.

Would I recommend it? Maybe. Would I get it again? Probably not.

Final verdict. Good but not great. If you’re going for the comfort drink a nice thick hot chocolate might be a better bet.
