Inkling was super sweet and added this as a bonus in our swap and though I am not a lover of chai teas, I am happy to try anything that people are kind enough to share. You never know unless you try, right? Right. So I brewed this up as a latte.
As I sip, I am finding the addition of vanilla pleasant but not a strong enough element to cover up the chai spices that are just not my favorite. The ginger is quite strong in this blend which I think is what is competing with the vanilla most. Also, as the sip ends, their is a spicy kick from the cloves that is interesting though I don’t know if it is a positive interesting or a negative one. On the whole, it was an alright cup but not something I will seek out again now that its done. Still, I am grateful to Inkling for the opportunity to not only try a new tea but also a new tea company. 184.
