7 Tasting Notes
I’m new to the world of chai, as I usually stick with herbals or green teas, but I’m trying to branch out-broaden my horizons if you will. I grabbed this one because it looked pretty and steeped a quick cup as soon as I got home. I added a splash of almond milk and a little bit of sugar and it was exactly what I wanted it to be. It has definitely encourage me to try some other brands and spice variations of chai.
I bought this on a whim. I was strolling down the tea aisle at kroger, as I usually do, and it caught my eye. I’m usually a huge fan of citrus flavors and I love some tartness in my teas, but this tea! I don’t even know how to explain. It was just not good. Even mixing it with lemonade didn’t help mask the overkill that is stuffed into this tiny little tea bag.
I’ve been waiting for the cooler months to hit before I broke this one out, but I have to admit that I broke down and brewed a steaming cup of this cinnamon-y goodness right in the middle of the 100+ degree heat. It was sooo tasty. Naturally sweet and full of fall-esque spices. Can’t wait to drink it guilt free :)
I bought this tea, hearing great things from my fellow starbucks fanatic friends, and I didn’t love it as much as I thought I would. Then I mixed it half and half with fresh squeezed lemonade and it was perfection. I will always have a spot for this tea on my shelf during the summer months.
