I’ve been on a tea spree. I wanted to try Fusion’s other chai teas because I really loved the chai aspect in their Caramel Chai Pu-erh. They sent me a sample of this with my order. This blend looks like a spicy everything-but-the-kitchen-sink. They add extra ingredients to their blend, that other chais might not usually have, like anise. I don’t think I’ve had a rooibos chai before. It seems like rooibos would make a good base for a chai, and really lends itself to other flavors. But here, it seems like it takes away some space in the blend for more spices. The spicier the better for me! The steep color was an orange rather than a red. Also, I’ve noticed the pepper flavor in any tea really only shows itself when the tea water was JUST boiled. I love this, but I would love to see a full chai blend from Fusion. Their spice mix is so great, it would be a nice standalone.
