From The Tea Spot

This strong spiced chai kicks the cold away with the season’s boldest flavors: red rooibos, cinnamon, ginger, cardamom, chai spices and a kiss of vanilla come together in this complex yet balanced herbal chai tea. Naturally caffeine-free and high in antioxidants and minerals, Red Hot Chai’s rooibos base provides health benefits and a mild honey sweetness to compliment the bold flavors of a traditional masala chai. Absolutely decadent when made with steamed milk as a chai tea latte (see recipe tab), Red Hot Chai is sure to please palates any time of day this season.

Backlog:

Chai blends are some of my favorite teas to enjoy this time of year. As soon as autumn starts to peek in with it’s chill in the air, I am starting to check out chai teas, and now that we are in to winter … I’m enjoying chai pretty often. I like being warmed from the inside out the way the spicy chai blends do.

This was a really good rooibos chai. Very strongly of cinnamon, it reminds me of Red Hot candies. I can also taste notes of cardamom and ginger, and there is a hint of vanilla to this too. And the vanilla is my favorite part of this blend … I love how it melds with the spicy to give this a sweet yet spicy taste.

Not a lot of “rooibos” flavor here. Perhaps a slight nutty tone to it but it all works together in a very tasty way.

Early Christmas present! Lord, I’m spoiled.

The chai spices are great, nice and bold headed by cardamom and cinnamon. Gold old Masala. I got bare hints of the vanilla, but more of the rooibos in the back ground. The rooibos they used in this had a bit of the weird citrus taste I get from red rooibos on occasion. I know that rooibos are normally described as woody, but with the spices, there is a weird citrus note. Maybe I’m crazy, oh well. My mom liked it and she is not a chai fan. Red Hot is a good description because it tastes like a watered down fireball. I think that it might serve better as a latte, and go incredibly well with sweetened condensed milk.

This did pretty well in the Urban Tea tumbler, and it can handle a lot of water. Only problem was the flecks of leaves sneaking through the strainer. I have that issue with rooibos anyway, which is why you don’t need to worry about it being bagged.

The container it came in is also a pretty nice size. I think it’s closer to an ounce. Fairly sturdy, too.

I could drink this tea straight, just not often. I think it would be better with compliments like honey, cream, condensed milk, and or sugar. The spices are so strong that it gives me a little bit of a headache, and suppresses my appetite…if that makes sense. If I’m walking in snow, this would be great. Now, not my favorite. I’m also being picky because I prefer the Climber’s High.

In the pouch, this smells like a box of Red Hots, and resembles redwood chips and dead flowers. Brewed, it yields a nice rich amber color and smells of Red Hots and a childhood medicine whose name escapes me. Tastewise, it’s not doing a thing for me. It tastes just the way it smells, like Red Hots and medicine. I definitely will not be trying this again!
