Nothing beats a good chai in my opinion and while you’d think it was just a matter of throwing a bunch of spices in black tea you’d be wrong. Shaktea is a great little tea shop in Vancouver’s south Main St, an area that’s seen a lot of revival lately and is home to a lot of great independent shops and cafes that haven’t been overtaken by the big businesses (yet).
This chai is one of Shaktea’s most popular blends and it’s easy to see why, it’s a great, full-flavoured tea with just the right mix of spices. I can taste the coconut as well though I wish it were a touch more prominent. Great with milk (like most chais), I’m going to try this one as a latte next time.
