Silly B, you bought this (around) this time last year while in Montreal, yet never drank it!? Oh yes, because you couldn’t – you sent it back to yourself from Montreal, to Vancouver, before you headed off to Europe. Yes, of course. Still! :)
So, finally trying this tea. The leaves were stunning, and smelled deliciously chocolately, with long spindles and great art to each one – I spent some time just enjoying them as I tried to make them fit into my teaspoon. They didn’t.
Saw a few rose petals and cardamom in the mix, not sure what else. It is a beautiful, subtle, very French chai though, one that I’ll savor a long, long time. It’s creamy and malty, a touch sweet, lightly spiced and with a hint of chocolate. It’s very, very good… I may have to give Chandernagor a taste today to compare. I think this one might win…
