I’ve been enjoying this tea as I prepare dinner for the family. Tonight, I chose to serve it latte – with a splash of warmed, frothed milk. YUM!
As most of you probably are aware, I’m not a big fan of Lapsang Souchong, nor am I big on yerba mate, but in this blend, they work together perfectly. There is just enough smoky flavor and earthy quality to this tea and it comes together so nicely with the spices. The spices, in contrast, do not have a typical chai BITE to them, but together, this works to become a very palatable beverage.
The touch of vanilla brings out the caramel-y tones so nicely… The more I drink this tea the more I am liking it!
