This is a pretty decent chai when making it the quick way by steeping the tea in boiling water for about 8 minutes and then adding milk and honey. It’s an AMAZING chai when you simmer it on the stove with the milk in there. My new trick is to steep in the water and then add steamed milk. Faster than the stovetop method, but still tastes really good.

The first time I drank this tea, I steeped it for 5 minutes in a mug with boiled water. I didn’t follow the directions that recommend brewing it in a pot on the stove. Infused this way, the only spice I could taste was the cardamom and it wasn’t as spicy as I would like.

Then I tried brewing it the way the company recommends in half water and half milk for 5 minutes on the stove. It’s still not very spicy. This time I can taste other spices than the cardamom, but I was expecting something stronger. It’s good for people who like very mild chaï.

This is a solid and clean masala chai. I am currently drinking it without milk. I will say that it is still a pleasant drink without milk. Some masala chais can be overpowering without milk, but this one holds up nicely. I am going to take some home and prepare it with milk to compare. I will post another note when I do that.

Great scent out of the bag.

No milk in house so had a cup mildly sweetened with cane sugar, bold spice flavor when sipped. Think it really needs some milk. Really needs some milk.

Will wait for 2nd steeping after I go shopping
