As the newly fallen snow transforms the world into a crisp canvas, your footprints mark the trail less-traveled. On the search for a delightful treat, you are led by the hand to the ornate destination of this age-old fable. A part of your seasonal traditions, this tea will warm from the inside-out, time and time again.

Dashes of cinnamon and allspice add edge to this warm and spicy creation.

The Tea Master’s blending philosophy is simple – allow the radiance and purity of each element to shine and intertwine in anarchic harmony. The essence of tea is slow and intentional, not seeking but open to inspiration from art and beauty in everyday life.

Even though this tea isn’t strictly a chai blend, I decided to turn the last bit of this into a latte using the recipe guidelines on Chai Wallah’s website: http://www.chai-wallah.com/makingchai.html

My boyfriend and I both enjoyed it even though I missed the cardamom notes that you’d normally taste in a chai.

I was very disapointed when T closed their retail store in Vancouver as I particularly enjoyed their own version of a gingerbread latte. They still operate online (at http://www.tealeaves.com/) so at least I can still purchase their teas.

Had a cup of this with milk and sugar today! It’s my favorite gingerbread tea so far. (I’ve tried three; the others were from David’sTEA and Adagio.) The dry leaf smells delicious, with lots of sharp ginger root, plus notes of cinnamon and allspice. There’s also chicory root and roasted carob, and vanilla. (Plus something called crystal malt? Interesting!) Once it’s steeped, the notes blend together well, and give the tea a sweet “baked” sort of flavor. I like that it has a definite dessert quality, instead of being just another holiday spice tea. I wouldn’t say it tastes exactly like a gingerbread cookie, but it has a good mix of spices and sweet notes that remind me of that.

I also like that this is a black tea. The spices work well with a strong base, and it’s nice to be able to add milk and sugar. Both of which are delicious with this, by the way… I’d like to experiment more with it in the future, maybe make a latte. I also tried a cup without anything added. It wasn’t as dessert-like, but very balanced—not too spicy or too dry.

Overall, this is a great tea! I’m a fan of gingerbread (my family has Russian and German ancestry, and we make the cookies every Christmas). So far, this tea is the best I’ve found when it comes to capturing that flavor. I’m excited to enjoy it during the holidays.

Thank you for your kind words, KatBender! Glad you enjoyed the Gingerbread House blend. If you liked it with milk and sugar, a latte would be delicious! You can also try condensed milk, or adapt one of our Chaippuccino recipes, found here: http://www.tealeaves.com/recipes/chaippuccino.html. Let us know how it goes!
