This is a sample from the Mosaic Tea & Coffee company who are considering adding this tea to their lineup.
This is a mild, well-balanced rooibos chai which surprised me a bit given how spicy-sweet it smelled and the fact that I used the whole sample which was probably 1.5-2 teaspoons. The rooibos is very smooth, with none of the unpleasant flavors it can sometimes have. There is a mild spiciness, and a nice sweetness here. No one flavor stands out to me, but at the same time this tastes very well-rounded. It is quite pleasant on it’s own, but doesn’t really stand up to adding milk. That’s a strike against it for me, since I almost always drink my chai with milk. It’s very smooth and creamy with milk, but the spiciness pretty much disappears. Definitely a tea to drink straight.
