This tea was a purchase from a local Indian food supermarket. They had many different brands but this was cheap and I hadn’t actually tried it before so thought it was worth a go.
The bags smell like clove and cinnamon which is nice but as expected. Once steeped this creates a fairly strong chai with dominant cardamom and clove aromas. Stronger and fresher than it’s raw tea bag form led me to believe.
Flavour is spicy but balanced, rich, fairly strong and actually….rather nice! The cardamom and cinnamon shine over a warm, black base tea with elements of clove, pepper, and ginger.
Must admit I don’t expect much from tea bags these days but this was lovely. Not fantastic, certainly not since I’m used to handmade chai that our local restaurants do, but in a pinch or relaxing at home this would certainly do. May be inclined to get more of this when I run out!
