From KTeas

Freshly picked 8 June 2011.

“Chai” is a word meaning “tea” in many parts of the world. In addition, these CTC black tea leaves are called “chai” because they make a popular base to which to add those luscious spices that turn the tea into the deliciously spicy beverage we call “Chai”. These CTC leaves of second-flush assam can certainly steep into a thoroughly enjoyable cuppa all on their own … well, okay, maybe add some sweetener and milk or cream (yes! this tea will stand up to cream!).

This one isn’t on the website, I don’t know if it has already sold out or not. I will have to drop KTeas a line and find out.

This is an incredibly strong Assam: bold, malty and a considerable amount of astringency at the finish. The aftertaste is especially nice: I can still taste the malt and it brings forth a pleasant caramel-y sweetness. A good, strong Assam!


Just an update: I have since learned that this tea is listed as “chai” on the KTeas website, so it is, indeed, still in stock. For those of us who have come to recognize “chai” as meaning a spicy tea, this is not a spicy chai. Here, chai means “tea.”
