Twinings order 6/27
I LOVE making apple cider w/ chai, but hot apple juice is sticky and messy so I’m on my search for a good apple chai. The only other one I’ve tried is Adagio’s but I couldn’t get any apple from it.
As soon as I open the box I can tell this will be different… inspite of the bags being individually wrapped, I smell apple. I can smell chai spices as well, but my brain just screams “APPLE”. When I open the wrapper, it only gets better… the chai spice aroma is stronger, but so is the apple.
As it steeps, the aroma fills my kitchen- that doesn’t happen w/ every tea. WHOA… This tastes exactly like you’d sprinkled finely ground chai spices over a sliced apple. And I’m getting an apple trifecta… there’s the sweetness of the apple, a tartness that you’d get from a granny smith (my fave), and even a hint of green apple hard candy. This is amazing. One of the suggestions is to sweeten, but if you do- I’d only go w/ brown or raw sugar. I’m not seeing white sugar, stevia, or agave being a good match for this. Honey possibly. The only thing I can’t figure out is why they don’t suggest milk or creamer… I have vanilla caramel creamer so I’ll try that next.
