2020 Advent Calendar from The Tea Girl – Day 5
Day 5 – first chai! I love chai, especially if prepared stove top, but normally the caffeine gets me with them as it’s normally a finer black tea. This one was no exception on the caffeine front lol so I didn’t quite finish my massive mug of it. But as for flavor – this was pretty good! It reminded me of a mix of Stormy Night by DT (probably the star anise and chocolate) and a chai I had from Verdant back in the day. I found it to be a soothing chocolate and not a fake chocolate, which was good! The black base was great, robust! I would definitely like to make this one stove top and add some milk and a touch of honey – bet it would really shine! I would like the ginger and chili to be a touch stronger too, as I love spicy teas!
Overall a very tasty chai! Will definitely finish off my sample, and as it is a local company may end up reordering! Enjoyable, I just have to watch the caffeine in it haha.
