I tried giving this another shot today. It’s been over a year since I had a cuppa, and this was a free sample so why not!
Overall, I must say it was much better than the in-store cup I had. Must have been a bad batch.
This one was nice and rounded. A little to sharp for my tastes but still tasty. Must have been cloves and cinnamon that made it so potent. Well, I also brewed it up quite strong, which is just how I like my chais. Bitter almost, so that the milk can swoop right in and save the day! ha.
Raising the rating a bit here. Not my fave blend but I’d take it if someone offered me a cup!! :)

Funny, my store was selling those old Christmas ornaments at half-off, so they were 2 bucks. The girls there are very casual with me as I am such a regular, so when I asked about the teas in the ornament, they told me that the green and the oolong were good, but, “The last one’s masala chai, and that one’s nasty.” LOL. I told them I already had a bag of it at home, and I like it!

Indigobloom

haha nice! masala isn’t for everyone, I’ll give them that though. Like Lapsang, it’s love or hate :)

Bonnie

I think this is the one you sent me I-Bloom…you couldn’t remember who it was from…just a Masala…har har. I think I’ll brew some up!

Indigobloom

Oooh was this the one? Hmm! I hope it isnt’ too strong. Be wary of the punch! :p

Bonnie

Are you going to punch me or can I punch someone? who should I punch?

Indigobloom

depends, who punches first? if the tea dodges left, go right!

Made this as a proper latte on the stove. Added some cinnamon to garnish, honey to sweeten, and even though I used skim milk, it’s still decently creamy. Well, as creamy as you can get with skim milk lol. Not as spicy as I would like, but still good.

Thank you IndigoBloom for this tasty tea sample!

Happy First Day of Summer!
(Anyone reading this in the Winter will growl and offer a curse on me…well you’d better NOT!)

I had a small packet of tea left from IndigoBloom which was labled “Masala…don’t know from who” and today…the mystery of “who” was solved when she did a review mentioning her Masala from Teopia. Ha! Gotcha!
I read a caution not to brew the Chai too strong “it has a punch”…so I obeyed! I played it smart at 3 minutes, sweetened my cup and added cream. Turned on some smooth Sinatra (oh yes, croon on Frankie) and
took a drink throwing my head back like a lady with a cocktail at the end of a hard day.

Ahhhh,yessss…the perfect strength. Not too strong, not too spicy. Smooth. Just right!

I tasted some apple first, no standout spice… but I could feel the cinnamon heat. All of the spices were blended together in harmony. There was a bit of a honey-malt sweetness from the underlying Black Tea.
(Soooo glad the Tea was not completely covered up with a blanket of spice!)
I believe this is one of the mildest Chai’s I’ve ever enjoyed. Quite good and better than I thought it was going to be! (Ya’ll tricked me with your warnings!)

Next time, maybe I’ll take the steeping a little longer, although why should or would I? This tastes really good as is!

Summer, Swimming!
I have a pool…come on over! http://youtu.be/bTcmCxqOE_s Sinatra

I wonder if Indigobloom gave you the Masala Chai from Teaopia, or whether it was the one she gave me, which was from an unknown company because she couldn’t read the label? It wasn’t particularly strong for me, but a pleasant chai just the same.

Indigobloom

oh yes, that’s right… it was probably the one my friend gave me, from India!! the label is obscured by a hole punch. (hehe there’s the punch!)

DaisyChubb

I would love to take up your pool invite Bonnie! Happy first day of Summer indeed :D

Bonnie

Ha ha. Sure I-Bloom that’s what you mean by it having a punch …sure …u…silly!

Probably one of the best teas I’ve ever tasted. This has a lovely spicy cinnamon undertone and is literally like drinking gingerbread. It’s sweet and has a full flavour. Adding milk and sugar to this can’t hurt, but it is great without as well.

I really like this Chai I was very sad to see it wasn’t going to survive the transition from teaopia to teavana. I live in an area where I had easy access to both teaopia and teavana (before it got stores in Canada)and have tried the Black tea Chai from both places an I hated teavana’s Taj masala Chai but loved Teaopia’s Masala Chai. I am currently hoarding what is left of my teaopia chai until I can find something to replace it ( the closest I’ve found is from a little cafe in Windsor, Ontario called Taloola’s).

I tried a few sips of this without milk and sugar to start, and I get that it’s supposed to be a transition tea from coffee to tea. It’s quite dark, strong, and a little spicy. The smell is very sweet, predominantly cloves. A little milk and sugar later and… mmmmm. Everything I want in a chai: sweet sweet sweet with a little bit of lingering spice on the tongue. Delicious!!
ETA: points off because I find myself thinking I’d like this to have more spicyness

Being very picky with the kind of Chai I like, I’m quite fond of this one. It’s lovely when steeped for a longer amount of time and with a bit of milk. Normally I like my chai to be quite spicy and strong so that the milk doesn’t bring down the taste, but I found this one to be really quite lovely and perfect for early afternoon.

A cup I have just finished. It’s strong, and earthy if you steep it for 4 minutes. Now, it’s pretty good for the season, but the tea leaves me with a dry mouth after a few sips.
