drank Kashmiri Chai by Golden Moon Tea
1627 tasting notes

I opened this tea up finally. I was a little disappointed to be honest. I saw the beautiful whole spices in there, such as cloves, cinnamon bits, and cardamom pods. However, all I smelled was some sort of cinnamon spice oils. It smells too strong, and I was worried it would overpower the blend. The chai blends that I have tried never had this scent. I usually make my own blend or buy blends that are natural. This one is not natural.

Anyway, I brewed this up Western style. The blend was not bitter, which is a plus. I needed to add sugar and milk to this though. The oil is overwhelming :( I don’t recall the sample being this way. The milk and sugar did temper the oil, so I was a bit glad about that. Overall, this isn’t one of my favorites, but it seems as if it would be a great tea during the cold winter months. I will try this again but brewed over the stove top.

I’m someone who happens have an addiction to tea! My tea collection keeps growing and growing, which just means that I’ve got to drink more tea! When life gets a bit too stressful, I love sitting down to a nice, warm cup of tea.

Swap: I am always up for swapping! Take a look at my cupboard and send me a msg! I always send extras since I have too much tea! :)

My cupboard contains all the teas that I own. The teas that are unrated but are in my cupboard are ones that I haven’t opened yet. :)
