I’ve tried a few rooibos chai blends out there, some I’ve liked, some I haven’t … this one is one that I definitely liked. A really good rooibos chai.
The anise really comes forward in this chai, then I notice the cinnamon and pepper/ginger. The rest of the spices are more of a “spice medley” on the palate, and it is more difficult to pick out the individual flavors. But I am enjoying the way the flavors all come together.
The vanilla is especially nice here, because it gives an undertone of creaminess without adding dairy, which is something I don’t like to add to rooibos chai blends because rooibos is so thin … milk will just … overwhelm the flavors.
Warm and cozy!
