Taster’s Review:

This is a delicious yet mild chai.

The strongest flavor of this cup is the flavor of the black tea base, and that’s just the way it should be.  It is a bold, smooth tasting, organic black tea.  While it does provide a strong presence in the cup it doesn’t overwhelm the spices, instead, it works with them to provide a well-rounded, full-bodied flavor.

The strongest spice flavor I taste is the ginger, followed closely by the black pepper.  Even though these two spices are the strongest spices in the blend, I wouldn’t consider this cup to taste overpoweringly peppery.  It has a nice peppery taste, certainly, but I don’t find it to be too strong, and even the meeker tea drinkers out there will probably enjoy this chai.

The cinnamon weaves in and out of the sip, and I like how it enlivens the sip with a sweet yet spicy taste.  The cloves and cardamom are not particularly strong in this cup, although they do offer a nice background of warmth.

Overall, this isn’t the strongest chai that I’ve tasted, but, it is still very good.  This is one chai to which I wouldn’t recommend the addition of milk, although I do recommend a drizzle of honey or a sprinkling of turbinado sugar.  The milk overpowers the spices here, but the sweetener helps to enhance their delightful complexity.
