Brilliant chai: warm, rich, sweet flavours. Great with honey or milk, or even by itself given the sweetness from the dates.

Almost there with the T2 Hottest Hearty Brews sampler! I’m pretty sure there’s just one more to go after this one. It’s been an interesting mix – some fruity summer blends, some more wintery or chai-style, some sweet and some savoury. It’s been a good way to try a decent spectrum of T2s flavours, and to get an idea of how they blend.

Today’s choice is one probably better suited to autumn/winter, but I’m going to go ahead and finish it up anyway. Bird & Blend release their summer collection this weekend, so I need to free up some cupboard space for that!

Hot Date Chai is a blend of chocolate, chilli, and date. It’s a black tea, but it doesn’t brew up to any great strength; this isn’t one that would take milk well, I don’t think. There are a lot of cardamom pods in my sample, but I’m not too worried since that’s a flavour I tend to enjoy.

Milk chocolate is the first flavour I can taste, and it comes across really well as actual chocolate, rather than cocoa. I’ve noticed this with other T2 blends, but they also manage to make it a strong, substantial flavour – no watered down chocolate here! This sampler gives me the impression that chocolate is a flavour T2 do well, which is something to bear in mind when I’m making future choices. The chilli develops out of the mid-sip, and gradually builds to a level of spicy background heat that makes for a pleasant pairing with the chocolate.

I’m not getting much in the way of date, which is a shame. Without it, this is really just a chocolate chilli chai, which isn’t especially unique, although the backdrop of traditional chai flavours – cardamon, ginger, clove – is nicely balanced.

If this wasn’t missing the very element that would make it interesting and unique, I’d be more than happy with it. As it stands, I’m feeling the loss.
