While traveling, I ended up at the Bainbridge Island Apothecary and Tea Shop, because I was in dire need of a cuppa and about two hours alone with a book. I went out to the back area, where the proprietor has set up a covered area with clear plexiglass overhead (to keep the Seattle rains off) and many comfy couches. There I settled with a pot of this chai and a scone.
It was delicious. The pepper adds a lovely zing to the ginger (I like spicy tea) and the cardamom does not get lost either. I could not particularly discern the vanilla, but that is possibly because I was also indulging in a lemon-blueberry scone at the time, which I expect overwhelmed my tongue.
I bought a small packet of it to bring home with me, and today’s mug is the last of it. I will not be ordering more online (because shipping is just one of those evils that I prefer to avoid if I can) but the next time I’m out to Bainbridge, I will happily pick up another bag. It’s quite good. (And the shop itself is well worth the pilgrimage.)
Flavors: Cardamom, Ginger, Pepper
