drank Masala Chai by Rishi Tea
21 tasting notes

I was gifted this tea by a friend and fellow tea enthusiast for my birthday. I mostly followed the stove top recipe on the back of the tin except I stirred in 3 tablespoons of honey instead of sugar. I also found to be better tasting when I tried the recipe with all (reduced fat lactose free) milk instead of 1 cup water and 1 cup milk. When I tried the cafe method and I found it to be not nearly as robust and delicious as the stove top method.

This chai is quite strong, with the cardamom packing quite a punch! Try making some tapioca boba and putting it in the tea – I found that it helped balance the strong, spicy flavors.

I probably will not buy more of this tea when I run out because I found it a little too time consuming to prepare on the stove top with boba and I don’t like the fact the tea cannot be infused multiple times.

I’ve been a loose tea drinker since 2006 and I really started getting into tea during my college years. My favorite types are oolong, scented green, white, peppermint, and rooibos.

My husband and I drink it on a daily basis and we love our trusty Zojirushi water dispenser. Some of the tea we drink hot, and the rest we chill.

I enjoy tea with honey or german rock sugar. I also try to seek out unique honey for my tea. My favorite so far is unprocessed Hawaiian white gold honey.

If I’ve rated a tea over 90, it’s something I will definitely be drinking again in the future.

Lately I’ve been enjoying a lot of authentic Chinese tea that was gifted to me from my mother after her last trip to China. Unfortunately I won’t be able to write notes for those teas on Steepster.
