I added a 2-ounce packet of this to my order when I purchased the advent box from Simpson & Vail. To be completely honest, I have no idea what I was thinking… I’m not generally big on masala chai blends. I guess it must have been the promise of French vanilla that drew me in.
Is it just me, or do these Simpson & Vail teas always need to be overleafed? I feel like all of the teas I ordered from them are a bit weak with my usual amount of tea (a tablespoon for 16 ounces of water).
This one is just “meh” in my opinion. It’s somewhat weak, with a brisk and slightly astringent base tea. The spices are really mild and generic-tasting. And I don’t get any vanilla flavor at all, not even a hint.
I feel like a crazy person, the other notes on this tea are absolutely glowing…
