Hmmm. Given my love for almonds and hunt for the perfect chai, this seemed promising. At first sip, it seemed to deliver! but by the end of the cup… it was still good… except for the splenda/stevia like flavour coming out. Now, I added milk so perhaps without it would do better? but then it’d be an anti-chai!
The cinnamon and almond work really well together to create a smooth and spicy tisane. However, I can only guess at which ingredient is making me question the unnatural sweetness. Is carob naturally sweet like that? It IS the first ingredient… but I have never seen it in a tea before. or perhaps it is the orange peel. Either way, it’s an interesting bedtime drink that I could foresee-ably drink in the evenings in lieu of a camellia sinensis tea.
and hey, no sugar required here! :)
