In the bag, the ginger fragrance is super-punchy, but is rounded out beautifully in the cup by the other spices, and a bit of vanilla. It’s just on the spicy side of the chai spectrum, not too sweet on its own, which is just the way I like my chai. I made it by adding a couple spoonfuls of sugar to a mixture of about 4 ounces boiling water and 8 ounces very hot soymilk. The milkiness takes the edge off the gingeriness of it, and makes it into a super cozy, warming cling. It feels clever and comforting and sexy, just like Two.
2 Tasting Notes
Doctor Who tea has sort of taken over my life. As soon as I opened the bag, I was met with a smell that reminded me of those lovely hard candies you always find in a bowl in your grandparents’ living room. In the cup, the flavour of black tea asserts itself beautifully, accented with subtle but definitely present top notes almost reminiscent of butterscotch. With a bit of milk and sugar, this is every bit as comforting as a boop on the nose from One himself.
