Drinking a pot of this right now before bed. The sample comes from Liquid Proust and while I wasn’t so stoked to try it since it’s a Chai blend (something I’m not huge on) I do think it was definitely worth trying, if only to expand the different types of Chai I’ve had. In this case, the rooibos base is kind of what makes this one a little bit different.

The taste of the “Chai ingredients” isn’t so bad, actually. I definitely taste a fair dose of cinnamon and allspice and some cardamom. I don’t particularly get any of the anise or cloves, though and that’s a bit disappointing because I actually greatly like both those flavours. What’s especially weird for me about this blend, though, is that it tastes very bready. And not so much bready in a “baking bread”/positive way? It’s almost more of a sourdough type of flavour note. Unusual, to say the least, and fairly unwanted.

Not a bad tea overall but not something to write home over. And I’m pretty cool with not drinking it again…
