drank Melange Rooibos by 52teas
86 tasting notes

Okay, I have to admit it. I’m a geek. Especially now that I work in a software company, the inner geek is making itself known. When I saw a tea based on Dune, I absolutely had to buy some immediately :)

Dry, it smells like a wonderfully spicy chai. Could I have possibly inadvertently found my perfect chai??

When brewed, the scent brings to mind hot apple cider without the apple. It tastes wonderfully spicy. Love the cardamom and cloves. I only put the barest teaspoon of sugar because I wanted to really enjoy the spiciness. I can imagine this as the taste of the melange. Or, as the book says: “Some hold that the spice produces a learned-flavor reaction. The body, learning a thing is good for it, interprets the flavor as pleasurable – slightly euphoric.”

This is definitely a pleasurable tea. I’d have to try it with hot milk to know if this is the chai I’ve been looking for. As it stands, I may just become addicted to Melange :)
