I got this when I was passing through the Ten Thousand Villages store on Granville Island. http://www.tenthousandvillages.com/
I wasn’t terribly thrilled with Just Us’ chai tea, but this sounded interesting and I’m a huge advocat of fair trade, so I went for it. And I’m glad I did. This isn’t a mind-blowing tea, but it’s a sort of pleasent, solid sort of tea that doesn’t pretend to be anything more than it is. It’s secure in its sexuality and all that. ;)
The smell of this tea is of lemon but without lemon’s sour bite – it’s like lemon candy or lemon syrup. The taste does have a bit more lemoniness, but it’s evened out with a sweetness that keep it from being mouth-puckingly sour.
I think this tea would handle milk and sweetener pretty well so I’ll have to try it out next time.
