This Chai was also nice. The Star Anise is the star of the show here, & again the spices are fairly mild. Next time I’ll probably double the amount of tea of both this one & the Aussie.

A unique masala chai blend with a vibrant hit of star anise. Make it milky or make it neat!
A strong aniseed flavor is augmented by the other spices and the rich tea. Very much a full-flavored experience.
Food Pairing: Can be paired with beef and lamb quite successfully, also Chinese food. Strong enough to stand up to bold chocolate desserts
Ingredients: Black teas, Star anise, cinnamon, black pepper, cloves

I’m not sure if it’s because I’m out of cream and having this with almond milk, or what, but nope. This is very drying, and the spice flavours have blended together to be quite licorice-y, with a bit of burnt flavour. IDK.
If I really needed another chai, I’d try it again once I got some cream, but this one is going back into the box for someone else.
Flavors: Anise, Drying
This was another tea from this evening. I wanted to try and hit 150 by the end of this coming weekend and i have a sneaking suspicion that the mail man is going to be mean and have all my stuff show up on friday. This is a pretty muted chai, though the addition of the star anise meant that it had a little bit of that licorice flavour to it. My other half commented while it was brewing that he smelled licorice heh. I wouldn’t go out of my wany to get this one again, but it was nice to have a chai that was slightly different from what i was used to. AND the clove flavour wasn’t over powering in this one so it gets bonus points for that. :) thanks terri!

I know I’ve been posting a lot of whiny tasting notes but I have to whine a little bit more! I just got home from my first physical therapy appointment and boy, was that ever painful… It’s hard to imagine I’ll ever get back to normal. I wanted to treat myself to something nice when I got home, so I decided to bust this out… of course what I really want is an entire chocolate cake but that probably isn’t a good idea. ;-)
The spicy/sweet note of the star anise is definitely prominent here, the cinnamon is the next thing I notice followed by the clove and the black pepper. I enjoyed this with some soymilk and a bit of rock sugar and it’s just rich and sweet enough to imagine I’m doing something decadent. Definitely a unique chai and very warming for the chilly fog that’s rolling in. I can see myself keeping more of this on hand, I do love a good chai.
