A yummy, invigorating chai, although I disagree with the word ‘chai’ for this particular tea, because even though I know that ‘chai’ means ‘tea’ … to me, ‘chai’ means a spiced tea, and usually one with at least three of the four usual suspects: ginger, cinnamon, cloves and cardamom. This only has cardamom.
OK, so it also has other spices/herbs: dandelion root, long pepper, and vanilla. Plus it has cacao nibs. So, even though this isn’t a chai in my own definition of the word chai, I will not be angry with this tea as it has cacao nibs. This is one of those ingredients that when added to a tea, I’m likely to forgive many things. What can I say, I’m a hopeless chocoholic.
I like the way the earthiness of the pu-erh and yerba mate accentuates the earthy qualities of the chocolate here.
A very enjoyable blend. I like the way the coconut, vanilla and chocolate play together here, it’s really yummy.
