I decided to follow specialteas’ advice and make a tea latte out of this chai. So I brewed it, then combined it with a bunch of foamed vanilla almond milk.Verdict? Almond milk never makes good foamy drinks, but it’s all I had in the house. This chai though, is quite good and I’m surprised nobody else has reviewed it. It’s got a cinnamony overtone, but is sweet and interesting. Oddly, it’s not that different from the Teavana blend I tried the other day. I liked it a lot more simply brewed with water than I did with this bastardized concoction I made- I even burnt my finger on the hot cup badly enough to need to ice it. This is not a good day for tea related injuries!
