I got a few bags of this from my hairdresser several months ago. While visiting her I was going on and on about loose leaf tea and how much I loved it. She said, “I have this chai that’s really good. You gotta try it. Just boil it in some milk.” She pulled a bunch of these bags out and put them in a ziploc. I smiled politely and thanked her, thinking ‘hmmmmm’.
When I got home I put them aside and forgot about them. Until tonight. I wanted something easy to drink and not worry about ruining it.
I threw two bags into my red sweater nordic mug and let it steep for about 4 or 5 minutes. I was surprised at how thick the brew looked after steeping. I added cream and maple syrup. I tentatively took my first sip. Hey! It’s not bad! Not something I’d reach for on a daily basis, but in a pinch, it would do.
The spice is light, but it’s there. I have four more bags which I’ll have no problem finishing.
