From Octavia Tea

Deep, dark and delightful. Café Spice Chai is a mélange of exotic spices such as cinnamon, ginger, cardamom, clove and vanilla bean, conjuring up the aromatic delights of an Indian street market. Chai tea (which, when pronounced, rhymes with ‘bye’) originated centuries ago in India and is so popular in this part of the world that in Hindi, the word “chai” actually means “tea.” Wonderful with a touch of milk & honey. Traditional chai is often served like a latte, brewed strong and simmered in water, milk and sugar.

Another sample from Octavia! Thank you so much! For a chai, the brew is very very light amber on both steeps. Surprising for chai to be so light, but it really works with the spices here. The flavor just MELDS into perfection. The most balanced, perfect flavor combination. It’s almost like a spicy sweet potato dish with marshmallow on top. It’s warming, sweet, smooth. I don’t really see those huge vanilla pieces in my sample that I see in the photo for the tea. The flavor has hints of vanilla but more vanilla than I expected among these spices. That crushed cardamom really comes through in the flavor. The combination of everything here is just this calming, lingering, lovely light base chai that I don’t stumble across too often, so I can certainly appreciate this one. Even at much hotter temperatures, the second steep is the color of palest amber. (Though I love the brisk, dark chai too, this one is a change for the cupboard!)
Steep #1 // 1 1/2 teaspoons for a full mug // 26 minutes after boiling // 2 1/2 minute steep
Steep #2 // 2 minutes after boiling // 4 minute steep

Yum! I like a chai that’s a bit lighter if I want to drink it straight – sounds like this is a good one!

You should definitely keep this one in mind if you like lighter chai, Kittenna!
