When I opened this bag and took a big sniff, my first reaction was “NOPE”, which is never a good sign. :) It’s really… spicy (duh) but like, savoury-spicy. I think I must be smelling mostly ginger and black pepper, maybe the fennel? I don’t know, I usually love ginger (in tea and in general) but there’s something about this that offends me. Anyway, let’s give this a try.

I steeped 2-3tsp in 10oz of water for 10min. Now it just smells… earthy… and a bit spicy (but again, the spiciness is lacking that sweetness that I usually associate with chai). Tasting it, it’s actually not that bad. Huh. The spices are way mellower than I expected. It has a warming quality, presumably from the ginger and pepper, but it’s not ‘hot’ the way those ingredients can be (I’ve also let it cool down quite a bit temperature-wise). I added a bit of sweetener and milk, and it’s just… meh. Not bad, but nothing I’m going to feel compelled to buy more of.

This is just making me pine for the Aromatica Thai Chai rooibos – it was also a Tea Sparrow selection, and I loved it! Hrmph.

Honestly, don’t drink it hot. It makes quite a nice iced tea, but if you try to drink it before it cools, don’t say I didn’t warn you.

It’s around 70% chai-esque spices and 30% rooibos.
