Oh dear. I’ve had this in my cupboard for a long time, so I figured I would try and sip some of it down. I was craving a latte and thought this might fit he bill. Checked tasting notes and noticed that other people added dairy. Okay, seems like it’s worth a try.
Aaaaand maybe not so much. I steeped 3tsp in 8oz of water for 5 min, then added it to a bunch of warm milk. It curdled ever so slightly, I think – could also just be weird tea residue. Into the blender with sugar, and it blended up to be a nice, smooth looking latte. Sadly, the flavour is almost all tart orange with a hint of chilli. Bleh. How is that even possible?? The dry “leaf” is just loaded with chocolate!
Added half a teaspoon of ground chai. Slightly better. Added two teaspoons of cocoa and another spoon of sugar.
At this point it’s tasting like a chocolate orange, which is what I was hoping for There’s also a lot of other flavours covering up the flavour of the tea.
I might try one more cup straight, since I recall not hating this when I bought it, but I won’t be sad to see it leave my cupboard either.
