10 Tasting Notes
First tried this in a tea shop on a cold and rainy day. I had to have it. Reminds me of a Fireball, but not as painfully spicy. I take mine with milk and sweetener. I do think the pyramid bags aren’t strong enough for two eight-ounce cups, however.
In between all the fancy and exquisite teas, there has to be a place for a good, reliable, no-brainer tea. I discovered this on a recent trip to Scotland and can’t go back to any other basic black tea. I use one pyramid bag to 16 oz. boiling water and let it steep for at least four minutes before I pour my first cup. Milk and sugar or sweetener enhances the flavor.
This is chai with coffee, so if you don’t like coffee, you won’t like this. The longer you steep it, the more pronounced the coffee flavor is, so keep it under five minutes. I wouldn’t drink it without milk and sweetener of some kind.
