I love how robust this tea is. Nice and malty.
This first cup I didn’t focus too much on the flavour notes, since I was getting ready to head out the door and needed the caffeine.
Can’t say I noticed the cranberry, with or without the milk. It was rather sweet on it’s own, but I added a touch of sugar to try and bring out the fruitiness. No go, apparently.
The natural sugar note felt ,more licorice like than cranberry.
That particular sweetness isn’t one I’m terribly fond of in some blends, generally the “healthy” or medicinal types. Usually I don’t mind it in chai so I’m not sure why it didn’t work for me here. It may have been the distribution of spices in my spoon of course, or some other factor I haven’t figured out yet?
More investigation required!
