Sipdown! Blehhh, this tea smells really odd. Spicy but… not in a pleasant way. Perhaps I’m smelling orange, cloves, and cinnamon but there’s also something else offputting in here. ACK! First sip and this is ridiculously, unnervingly sweet! I can taste the coffee now, and the flavor, aside from the SWEET, is not as bad as the aroma indicates, but…. Blargh, this is not my cup of tea. I’m surprised you used up as much as you did, Sil! Thanks for sharing with me – at least I have one tea to permanently cross off my list. Perhaps this would be better tempered with milk, but I’m really not a fan of pre-sweetened teas… and this is just sickly sweet. I’m afraid this one’s headed for the drain; after the two delicious chiffon teas and two delicious chocolate teas I just drank, and the huge number of other delicious things in my cupboard… yeah, I can’t.
A classic chai tea with espresso beans. This creates a spicy, slightly bitter yet sweet tea with an amazing aroma. If you are a tea AND coffee drinker, try the two together in our Dirty Chai. Trust us, this will give you a pick me up!
