This cup is very interesting. The dominant note in both the dry leaf and steeped cup is fennel seed, with lemongrass and characteristic Darjeeling flavours in behind. Quite smooth and flavourful, this has a rather savoury quality to it, and is quite different from any other masala chai I’ve had.
The steeping directions recommended 2tsp per cup, but I used one and I’m not noticing any lack of flavour.
