Another tea that first introduced me to chai and its wonderful spiciness! To me its simply wonderful on the first sip, the spices did not throw me off but instead welcomed me with open arms! I knew then chai was the perfect match for me and mostly certainly important an proper introduction to Indian cuisine which I’m madly in love for! Its just so nurturing about chai and if its sweetened with some milk its almost like heaven itself…awesome!
So… probably the best (IMO) of the chai substitutes that are readily available that I’ve tried on this trip. It’s WAY WAY spicy (I like spicy chai, but this was a bit too spicy for me). It has a strong tea and spice flavor, unlike Oregon and Pacific, which I’ve also tried.
I suppose the next thing to do is to start mixing.
Also, I have tried the apple cider chai from SBS, and I prefer that to the whole mess of things I’ve tried here… but that can’t be found in a store and I didn’t order it before leaving. sigh
Finished the tin of full leaf “sachets” of this today and it wasn’t harsh at all. Go figure. Bumping it back up a few notches on the theory that my experience last time was an aberration. Reserving judgment on chai as a genre for now as I’m such a novice. I’m sure I’ll try a number of other kinds before I circle back to this one, if I ever do. I’d like to try some traditional chai to have something to compare against.
It wasn’t the worst tea that I drank, but it will be one of those teas that I try only once and say, it was nice drinking you, but you just aren’t my cup of tea. I like how it initially tasted, but I found that the spices in the tea had a way of lingering just a little to long in my mouth after drinking the tea was done.
