It’s been a while since I explored anything from David Rio – years, in fact. I’m happy to see that they still seem to be doing pretty well though; I’ve always really loved their endangered animal species angel…
I don’t think this tea existed the first time I dove into their line up – but it’s something that I totally would have been interested in at the time. Drinking it now, mixed into hot frothed milk, and… I think I had forgotten just how sweet this one tastes. It’s not bad though; just MIGHTY rich. As a not overly big Chai drinker I am of course driven to this sweeter sort of flavour – it’s softer on the spice, decadent/indulgent, and creamy as fuck. So, basically like a sugar chai!? Not really a chai for a chai drinkers but something more in line for someone like me who isn’t really all that into chai in the first place.
Also, I feel like I detected a citrus note too, and I loved that little aspect in the cup.
So if this the highest quality chai tea in the world? Oh heck no. However, it definitely works for what it’s intended for – a sweet, instant chai that is probably more for someone who isn’t a typical chai tea drinker.
