Had a cup of this today at Sawadee tea house. I was there for the first time and I LOVE it. Good teas, lovely owner, great teacups. I walked out with three teas, two teacups and big plans to return. Often. ((The beau also bought two teacups and three teas…)
Anyway, this is a nice chai. Mild, no ((EDIT: green)) cardamom or strong flavours. Didn’t pick up the vanilla at all, but I really enjoyed this. Bought a tin to take home and enjoy. So pleased with Sawadee…and still feeling the burn on my tongue from the pepper (The last little bit had sat in the press an extra five minutes or so and got spicy! This chai is more of a spicy chai than a gingerbread chai, but I like it!
Thanks to PeteG, who added this to the Traveling Tea Box. So much like a sweet red wine … that’s what i kept thinking as i drank the Sawadee Lychee Black tea. It’s been cold here in Texas, and this wasn’t a wine cooler … it was a wine warmer! The dry tea smelled nice and fruity, just like lychee fruit, in fact. I’ve had 3 other lychee blacks in the past, and none of them had the full-fledged fruitiness of this tea. I drank the whole cup, straight up, as i couldn’t bear to muddle it with milk, and it was sweet enough on its own. This tea got cloudy as it cooled, so that’s something to consider if you’re making iced tea, but i bet it would taste pretty darned good anyway.
This is the best black tea chai I’ve ever tasted. It’s evident in the dry tea that the freshest, highest-quality ingredients have been used. The photo in the listing does not do this tea justice. The spices, of which there are plenty, have been chopped to just the right size to blend in, and the black tea is full-bodied and bold. The blend has significant presence of ginger and black pepper, which is just how I like my chai. Both the fine black tea and the spices shone through the creaminess and sweetness after the addition of soy milk and agave nectar. Thank you, PeteG and Sawadee Tea House, for the deepest-flavored, most stimulating black chai I’ve ever had the pleasure of drinking.
I have been steeping all day…yah gotta luv when what the seller says is taken as ’gospel’and purchased. I listened to her and WoW! This tea is great! Poured my first cup early this afternoon and I have been pouring three more times with wonderful demonstrations of layers of sweetness and joy – contentment. Yeh, that’s it!
