I should have shaken up the bag before I scooped out this tea… not tasting any cumin, and I wonder if that’s why. The coconut is just starting to go off, but this is still pretty drinkable; however, I’m just not getting enough chai from it. Like, it’s weak enough that I feel it would be completely overwhelmed by milk. It’s also feeling a bit astringent to me, which I’m not a big fan of.
Some quick research tells me that this tea is at least 3 years old, so that’s probably partially why it’s not as flavourful as it could be, but I feel like it may not have quite been the chai blend of my dreams that I had hoped it would be. Have about a cup of this left, so will endeavour to finish it off quickly, and re-rate if indeed I can get more flavour out of it.
