Homemade Advent Day 16
from AJRimmer
These advent teas have been amazing so far and so fun to try!
Read the tasting notes before I prepared this one to help me decide on a steeping temperature. The clove and cardamom are the strongest spices that I taste in this one and are quite strong. I can’t taste the ginger but perhaps it’s just hiding beneath the other two spices. The mint comes through and is a cooling peppermint. I can taste the chocolate faintly as well. The spices do linger on your tongue but initially, I did try this without milk. I added milk halfway through my cup and this one would make a nice cup of chai with a little honey. In terms of a mint chocolate chai, I think the spices are a little heavy compared to the chocolate.
This one actually reminds me a bit of AU’s Combray tea just because of the cardamom and green tea base pairing. I also think that I found Combray a little drying as well. Chai teas are so soothing to drink throughout Winter.

I drink tea for many reasons: For pleasure, health benefits, mindfulness, to help with anxiety, hydration because I have always struggled with drinking plain water.
My rating system is kind of a mess and I keep telling myself I’ll fix it sometime.

0-23 Rating Means I couldn’t finish the cup
50- Undecided on a rating or don’t remember enough about it to rate the tea.
