Taster’s Review:

This is a mighty fine chai!

The spices are well-balanced. I’m not finding that one spice overpowers the others, which is nice.  The overall flavor is spicy, but it isn’t spicy-hot.  Warm, yes, but not what I would consider hot.  Definitely cozy and comforting!

I agree with my SororiTea Sister’s review of this chai – the dry leaf aroma is very memorable and quite delightful.  I don’t think I’ve ever smelled a chai quite like this one.  It really does have an almost bubble-gum-y like scent to it.  Of course, this does not translate into the fragrance of the brewed chai (or the flavor), but it certainly makes for a very intriguing scent as I was measuring the tea into my Breville One-Touch.

The base used in this blend is a delicious black tea.  It is smooth and strong, but it is playing a supporting role to the robust spices in this blend.  This chai is all about the spice, but, as I mentioned before, even though this chai is about the spice … it isn’t spicy.  Instead, it tastes warm, cozy and exotic.  I can taste notes of ginger and pepper, but they don’t overwhelm the cup.  I can taste the sweetness of the cinnamon and the warmth of the cloves.  And I can even taste a hint of licorice-y goodness from the star anise.  I can taste all these notes, but they are quite seamless at the same time.  It is blended in such a smooth, delicious way.

This is an awesome chai!   Quite delicious as a latte, but I found it to be equally as delicious without the milk, too!
