The first time I drank this tea, I steeped it for 5 minutes in a mug with boiled water. I didn’t follow the directions that recommend brewing it in a pot on the stove. Infused this way, the only spice I could taste was the cardamom and it wasn’t as spicy as I would like.

Then I tried brewing it the way the company recommends in half water and half milk for 5 minutes on the stove. It’s still not very spicy. This time I can taste other spices than the cardamom, but I was expecting something stronger. It’s good for people who like very mild chaï.

Boiling 5 min, 0 sec

I started drinking tea only a few years ago and I enjoy it because there are so many different kinds to try. I love to step out of my comfort zone and taste a wide variety of flavours. I am very curious about the different types of tea and how they are processed. I also appreciate traditional or antique teaware.

This is how I rate teas:
100 : Extraordinary delicious
81-99 : Very good, I enjoy it a lot
66-80 : Good, but not in my favorites
51-65 : Ok, not impressed
36-50 :Disappointing but it isn’t bad
16-35 : I don’t enjoy drinking it
0-15 : Absolutely disgusting, I can’t drink it

In addition to being a tea drinker, I am a foodie, a traveler, an historical junkie, a geek that loves to play video games, a bookworm and a cat lover :)

English isn’t my first language so I hope I’m not butchering it too much!
