My ex very kindly picked this up for me when he was on tour in Barcelona a couple years ago. This was the cutest chai shop I have ever seen, at least, according to the pictures he showed me. Looks like a quaint little shop, which as he described, as soon as you walked in, smelled very heavily of spices. Yes please!
The dry leaf is 3/4 cocoa powder and 1/4 spices and tea leaves, I’d say. Adding sugar and half and half instantly reminds me of my grandma’s hot cocoa recipe, which she makes with Fry’s cocoa, except this of course has the chai spices mixed in. I can’t taste the tea. It’s like drinking Aztec hot chocolate, except with cardamom and cloves added in with the cinnamon (and no heat, of course). This is so, so good.
