Taster’s Review:

This tea. . .this tea has me all sorts of confused! I want to love it but there is just something holding me back .. . .

This blend is a chai blend that sounds amazing with all the right notes.  I will admit that I am not always the biggest chai fan but this one just sounded amazing and had come highly recommended.

I brewed this up per the instructions on the package and was ready to be overtaken by amazing flavors of sweetness and spicy love.  But when I took my first sip, I was greeted with a very overpowering whole mouth feel of astringent notes and not really the warm toasted almonds and spicy ginger.  I looked at the packaging again to make sure that my parameters were correct and noticed that they say to add in sugar/honey to the mix.

So I grabbed some honey and added some in (not something I do very often).  And VIOLA! Those harsher astringent notes gave way to the decadent chai blend that they describe. Sweet with a subtle punch of spiciness from the ginger.  All that you could ask for and more from a chai. Really delicious and the honey just mixes in so well. A wonderful chai for sure.

Since I had to add the honey to get the notes to pop I can’t say I would ever want to buy more or try this one again but I am very glad to have tried it and will have no trouble infusing more for another cuppa!
