Recent Tasting Notes

Last cup. Hope this is available next fall…enjoying this so much explains why I’m not a huge lover of straight-up chai. It just tastes like hot, wet spice. The addition of a little fruit to the mix makes it homey and sweet and dessert-like. Wonder what cherry chai would be like…

Do your non-tea friends automatically assume you love chai? Me, too. However, this was a pleasant surprise—little bag passed on from a friend in a Republic of Tea-ish cylindrical tin, but with both RoT and Harry & David labeling. Can’t find a good description on either website, although it shows up as a “Pick Two Teas” option at H&D.

All that to say, it’s your standard average mishmash of chai spice ingredients, with the addition of apple. And the apple makes it exceptionally good. Pie with lots of cinnamon. Homemade red cinnamon apples. Mmmmmm!

Sounds interesting. usually the apple takes over too much for me

My taste buds get a little put out when blenders get too crazy with the cardamom in chai variations…so the fruity diversion is welcome in my cup.

I know what you mean. Though it can go terribly wrong- I tried a rhubarb chai today. Awful
