We tried this tea out recently, on a chilly day. We figured a spicy chai would be a good relief from the cold and wind.
This chai is indeed very spicy. Opening the bag, the peppercorns really stand out, with ginger and cinnamon close behind.
We first tried tasting it straight. It wasn’t very enjoyable. Kind of like drinking peppercorn and ginger. Much too savory and spicy, without much balance. Good for clearing out the sinuses, I suppose. So, we moved on to adding milk and honey. This was much better and balanced the savoryness of the of the tea.
This is certainly a unique chai blend. Very spicy and savory, with the peppercorns and ginger overpowering everything else. If that’s your thing, jump on it. However, it just didn’t work for me. I would have preferred the black tea to come through more, along with the cinnamon and allspice.
Overall, it works with milk and honey, but for the price, I’ll pass in the future.
