This was a good masala chai with the right balance of spice (for my palate, anyway). I had a bad experience with Whittard Spice Imperial a few years back that really put me off any tea with cloves in it. This one has made me rethink that.

The Ceylon black tea base works with and without milk. It’s bitter-free, smooth and strong enough to stand up to the spices, without milk. With milk, the creaminess makes the black tea notes richer and softer, yet the spices still don’t overpower it. There’s a natural sweetness to it that lets me forgo sugar happily.

Notes of cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and black peppercorns peak through, with a dried orange zest edge to the aroma. The overall feel is soothing. A relaxing sensation for the mind and body just from breathing in the fragrance.

It’s forgiving with longer steep times. One cup I brewed last week sat on the counter for about 7 or 8 minutes and was still smooth (although strong) when I finally drank it.

I’d describe it as between good and great. It’s not excellent or winning any awards, but it’s definitely more than just a “nice cup of tea”.
