Firebird Chai from Wendigo Tea Co. is a dandy of a medium strength chai! I didn’t find it too overly spicy but it still had a nice flavor to it. It contains Indian Estate black tea, cinnamon, ginger, cardamom, cloves, black pepper & all spice. I like when companies specify which black tea they use in their chai base. I’m seeing this more and more as of late.
With a name like Firebird Chai from Wendigo Tea Co I was thinking it was going to be the more intensely flavored chais. This really wasn’t the case but if you look at the product description they say many people add sugar, sweeteners, milk or milk alternatives to even out the spices in chai and that isn’t needed here.
I think my favorite part of Firebird Chai from Wendigo Tea Co is that there is a somewhat defined Earthiness to this chai offering. I find that unique and I welcome it! Firebird Chai from Wendigo Tea Co is a goodie!
Here’s the scoop!
Leaf Type: Black Tea
I, the glorious FireBird, am an imposing beast with the exotic complexity to guide you through a wild adventure of savory, sweet, spicy, and back again. Brace yourself if you think you are ready to experience the wonder of FireBird. I am a Spicy Masala Chai that leaves scorched remnants of other Chai teas far below my ferocious wings.
I am born of the meanest Indian Estate black tea available, cinnamon, ginger, cardamom, cloves, black pepper & all spice. Where other Chai teas expect you to add milk and heaps of sweetener to balance the bitter taste of inferior ingredients, I stand alone as a unique masterpiece.
My elevated nature is most notable from the refusal of being satisfied with anything but the very best and strongest tasting Premium Indian Estate Tea available. This compliments the spices and will not dare be buried under them, but earthy decadence soaring ahead for the lingering trail of spice and flavor following on your pallet.
Feel the Burn. Love the taste.
