Continuing my tea bag extravaganza. This will be my last cup of the day. Had a diet Coke and a big lunch (they cancel each other), and would prefer to have a puerh but don’t have it in a bag and I almost never start a multi steep tea on a Friday afternoon. Can’t waste the leaf! I don’t have milk to do this right either, but full speed ahead. This brews up dark and clear (not cloudy). Hot it is a bit peppery and not as full flavored as the aroma suggests. I think I am expecting it to be Constant Comment. The cooler the cup the more flavor it develops. I am not a chai drinker so I don’t know if this is a good example or bad. All I know is I enjoyed it.
Once upon a time, Chai was drunk only by the royalty in India. But word got out about its spicy, soothing flavour & soon the streets were filled with the distinctive scent of cinnamon, ginger and cloves.
Chai is perfect at any time of day,but particularly in the afternoon. Invite some friends round and share the secret all over again.
