5 Tasting Notes

Initially, I found this tea slightly bland. (I like my chai to burn the back of my throat as I drink it). However, as I got better at brewing it, and worked my way towards the bottom of the bag, the spice started to become more powerful. This is an excellent masala chai blend. Also, I adore the label art!

Warm and comforting. The vanilla and citrus flavors are subtle but rich, complimenting the oolong magnificently. A bit unforgiving with regards to water temperature being too hot.

This tea is an enigma. Without milk or sugar, it is sharply citrusy and faintly bittersweet. With milk and a bit of sugar it is rich and sweet, like lemon meringue pie. The perfect tea to drink while relaxing after a day of space archaeology, or while adding your latest adventure to your diary.

‘Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I’ve tasted of desire,
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.’
Robert Frost

A taste of worlds burning, and the cold void of space. Two opposing forces balanced in perfect harmony. The burn of spice on the tongue, and then the cool and lingering chill of mint afterwards.
