Yes, this stuff really rates 100 for me as it’s the best spiced chai I’ve ever had, bar none. Cinnamon, clove, cardamom, black pepper, orange peel, galangal, ginger…and several other things as well as the black tea. This is most definitely not one of those wimpy, overly sweetened, so-called ‘chais’ you can pick up at any coffee stand. Brewed according to the directions, this stuff packs a powerful but outstandingly delicious wallop to the tastebuds! I like to sweeten mine with real maple syrup, if I’ve got it, or fireweed honey, though regular honey or raw sugar will do.
I used to love going to Mr Spot’s Chai House in the Ballard neighborhood of Seattle and buying a cup of Morning Glory chai when I brought my empty one-gallon glass bottle back to get a full one. Sadly, Mr. Spot’s closed, but Morning Glory chai is still available on their website http://morningglorychai.com/ I occasionally buy a bag of their chai and have even sent half a dozen bags to an acquaintance of mine who wintered over at Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station; she loved it and kept her chai as a special treat for herself and her friends.
