It’s all about the cinnamon. The smell of this tea tickles the nose a bit, it’s a dry cinnamon smell…and somehow it reminds of incense. I’m not really sure why, sometimes my brain doesn’t give me all the details on things. But I deffinately get a bit of an incence-monk-temple sort of vibe from this one.
Somehow this tea always surprises me when I steep it. The color always turns out cloudy for me, and I’m sure a tea probably isn’t supposed to be thick…but somehow it seems like it has a bit more body to it than other teas i’ve tried. It’s sort of like comparing a bud light beer to a guinness, I suppose. Thise one would deffinately be the guinness.
The taste, however…comes off more like soggy cinnamon water than tea. The great smell of this just seems to dissapear after steeping, and perhaps just doesn’t have the bite I’m looking for in a chai.
I was madly in love with David’s Tea when I first started on my tea advernturing, but now I think the relationship is cooling a bit. I just can’t seem to get it right lately.
