From Dilmah

A naturally spicy marriage of pure Ceylon Tea and the aroma and pungent flavour of natural Ceylon Spices. Ginger with its throat warming ‘hotness’ gives this brew a sharpness that is uplifting and awakening. Cardamom and Peppermint balance the spiciness of Ginger. An authentic Chai that is true to the Asian Chai tradition, using all natural ingredients to produce an invigorating brew.

I snagged a box of this tea after a friend’s Singaporean exchange student housemates left it behind. The variety I have doesn’t seem to be exactly what I found on the company’s website (my kind is called “Mild & Spicy Masala Chai” and has a different box), but hopefully the taste is comparable.

This is a very nice if slightly unusual chai. I was pleasantly surprised when I had my first cup at the delicate, almost fruity aftertaste (I’m sorry if my descriptions are a little imprecise, my taste buds unfortunately don’t communicate in words). This definitely isn’t a spicy/hot chai like many I’ve tried, I think the overriding flavour is actually cardamom rather then a more cinnamon/pepercorn/clove spicy taste (just conjecture, I don’t know that much about the individual chai spices).

Tastes best with some milk and honey for sweetening, although I find the milk isn’t as important in this chai as some others because of the more delicate taste. I haven’t found over-steeping to be a problem (I often carry around a travel mug and just leave the tea bag inside and it never seems to get that bitter aftertaste).
