This tea was kindly gifted to me by Plentea to try out and review!

I’m not really a huge Chai drinker, as you all know, but I was curious about this one because cardamom is so high up on the ingredient list – followed by clove. Both of these are are spices I have a stronger preference towards, so it seemed promising!

Brewed up the tea liquor is thick and cloudy for the strong concentration of spices in the blend. This is one of those teas that kind of screams “try me as a latte” – it’s clearly intended to be bold enough to hold up substantially well to the richness of milk. It’s a lot of spices, and I feel like I had a “couple of sips” long adjustment period as I got used to the strong notes of aromatic, citrus-y cardamom, bold clove, and peppery ginger.

The cardamom was my favourite part of other tea that they sent for me to try, Vicious Apple, and it’s really great here too – strong with great clarity of flavour and that well rounded warming spice, camphor, and citrus flavour that I love. I would personally prefer less ginger and pepper, but that’s strongly just a person aversion to those notes in Chai and I think the cardamom/clove are both substantial enough that they make up for the elements I’m less immediately attracted to.

Next up is to make this one up as a latte – stovetop, preferably!

#tiffanys2021sipdown Tea #57 overall / Tea #24 for February

Wednesday 2/17 — Pulled this out to have for Mastress Alita #2021steepstersipdown prompt on Feb 1 (“Monday, February 1st: National Freedom Day / Black History Month – If you have a tea from a black-owned business (check out this highly recommended thread!: https://www.steepster.com/discuss/41383-supporting-black-owned-businesses-tea-companies), drink it today! Alternatively, drink a favorite black tea!”).

Last two DAVIDsTEA perfect spoons brewed with milk + water on stovetop & had with my breakfast. Delightful latte treat I’ve been sipping on the last few weeks making it the same way each time until the tea was gone today.

So this is my description 2/17/21 as I put this in the steepster system…This is a traditional black tea chai from Plentea Tea Bar located in Toronto, Ontario, Canada area. I was able to select between black and rooibos base (I chose black) and what extra ingredient (I chose cardamom pods), and they put it in a bag with a chai spice bases of their own. I bought this bag in October 2019.
