Wewt! Last bit of a sample tin! One day, there will be room in my tea cupboard once more!
It is still cold, although it DID only rain on me for a little while, so I suppose that’s an improvement. However, there is just something about cold that makes me want spiced tea/chai. And there is just something about trying to write my master’s thesis that makes me want to drink and review tea instead. So here I am.
I actually got a full container of this after ordering the sample (then was promptly inundated with samples and never finished the sample – until now) Somehow they got the balance of the spices such that the cardamon is actually dominating, and I believe I have stated before that I am pretty much a sucker for cardamon. There is a faint hint of cinnamon and the ginger is mostly present as an undertone and in the aftertaste. I really like the whole ‘chai, but lighter!" vibe it’s got going on. (I read somewhere today that no one actually uses the word “vibe,” is this true?) It makes for a tea that is not domineering and yet has substance. Very nice for the afternoon or evening.
