drank Chai With Chocolate by 52teas
304 tasting notes

I followed Cofftea’s brewing directions: 1:1 ratio of milk to water, 2 X the leaf, simmered for 5 minutes on stovetop. Perfection! This is very good chai, nice and spicy, but not too much just the right amount. I can’t say I tasted chocolate, but the brew was reeeeaaallly smooth, so the chocolate may have played a role in the overall taste. Thanks Cofftea, I really enjoyed this chai for the first time:)

Woohoo! Although I’m SO glad I don’t have to use 2x the leaf. Since I drink a 16oz cuppa every day, that would be over 3/4 of an ounce of leaf every day. I’m not sure what would give me a heart attack 1st, the caffeine or the amount of $ spent on chai in a year. LOL!

I know what you mean about the cost. To get the spice I wanted, I used 2 spoons of leaf and only got half a mug of chai, but it was really good. Not something I can do everyday, but definitely a nice treat!

STAY CALM AND DRINK TEA

Steam rises from a cup of tea

and we are wrapped in history,

inhaling ancient times and lands,

comfort of ages in our hands.
