Late night Chai, my reward for finally clearing away more boxes today. I get my new combi boiler installed on Monday so I need to make space, cost £4000 but should have cheaper bills in the long run. Plus I’m booking a holiday to the Canary Islands next week, picked the place and dates today :D I’ve never been on holiday abroad with my husband, it’s out 12 year anniversary in March so we leave then.

Sorry, just excited. Anyway this tea is called latte and it suggests making it as such, one third water and teabag for at least 3 minutes and then top up with warm and frothy milk. Simple.

I sniffed the bag before I steeped it, it was delicious! It had a pure sweet almond scent with a gentle hint of spice. Mostly sweet over the spice.

In flavour my first words were “Oh My God!” It’s amazing! It tastes sweet and nutty (very almond) but the spices have become more recognizable. So you have sweet almond, light black pepper and cardamom with a cinnamon finish. It tastes like an authentic Chai, the type that they serve in local Indian restaurants. It’s so full of flavour though it’s never too much. I think I’ve found my perfect Chai. I love Chai and have tried many but this is the best, it has everything I love in a Chai and it’s authentic flavour is top notch.

Wow, I was really not expecting to like this one but it blew me away. A new favourite Chai, will have to hoard this as soon as I run out.

Flavors: Almond, Black Pepper, Cardamon, Cinnamon

Bio

I’m 30 years old from Leicester, England named Kayleigh. I have a wonderful husband called Richard whom I am very lucky to have in my life.

I started off many years ago drinking herbal and fruit teas which over time peaked my interest in trying new types. Eventually I began to import and sample many different teas and cultures which I still do today. My life goal is to try as many teas and ways of having tea as possible.

Tea wise my cravings change constantly from pu erh one month to jasmine green to the next and so on.

I adore cats and have six of my own called Cassie, Mr Sooty Pants,Ivory Ruby, Lady, Misty and Ollie.

I also have two fish tanks which thankfully my cats have no interest in. They house an array of tropical fish and shrimp.

I am a proud vegetarian and have been for the majority of my life. When I say vegetarian I mean just that as well, no fish or seafood, no chicken now and again, no animal products such as gelatine and cochineal.

I also enjoy watching Japanese Anime and horror films.

I am always up for tea swaps so if you see anything in my virtual cupboard then please contact me.

A short list to help swapping with me easier though honestly I am not fussy and am willing to try anything. Plus the notes below are usually, sometimes I love a tea that has an ingredient I tend to dislike and other times I hate a tea that I thought I would love.

Likes: Any fruit but especially melon and orange, vanilla, all tea types (black, green, white etc), nuts (any), flowers, ginger, chai.

Dislikes: Licorice, aniseed, clove, eucalyptus, lavender.

My rating system
I have my own way of rating teas that makes each one personal. I have different categories, I rate each tea depending on what it is made of. For example: I rate green teas in a different way to black teas or herbal teas. So black, white, green, Pu Erh, Rooibos, Oolong, blends and tisanes all have their own rating system. That way I can compare them with other teas of the same or similar type before for an adequate rating. And when I do give top marks which is very rare I am actually saying that I would love to drink that tea all day, every day if possible. It’s a tea that I would never turn down or not be in the mood for. So while I agree that no tea is 100% perfect (as nothing is) I am saying that it’s as close as it comes to it. After all, in my book the perfect teas (or close to perfect anyway) are ones that I could drink all the time. That is why you will find a high quality black or Oolong will not have as high a score as a cheap flavoured blend, they are simply not being compared in the same category.
