Well, my sister bought this one for me for Christmas, and I love a good chai, so I tried it. The smell is quite nice; the spices really come out while it’s brewing. On tasting it though, I was a little disappointed. The wonderful spices just sort of mellowed and disappeared inside of the black tea flavor. There are some hints of cinnamon and nutmeg, but not enough to redeem it. I wanted to like it more than I did.
Commonly known as the traditional drink in India, Chai tea is becoming more and more popular in the United States. The spicy aromatic composition has its origin in the ayurvedic teachings, known for their positive effects on the mind and body. We recommend adding milk (7/8 tea with 1/8 milk) as this takes away some of the spiciness and creates a very pleasant taste experience.
