First cup of the morning. I was very curious about this tea, since I’ve heard good things about it. But I’m not a huge fan of chais in general so I wasn’t sure how I would like it. I was surprised at how mildly flavored it is, very light in the spice flavor. The flavor is initially of herbs with a subtle spicy aftertaste that lingers. It was ok without milk and sugar, but with it becomes a smooth, warming cup that reminds me a little of gingerbread. Thank you to KiwiDelight for this sample! I’m saving the rest of it for the fiancee, who loves chais!
