I have so many Golden Tips samples that I still need to try. :) I actually chose this one thinking it’s a herbal chai (since it’s close to bedtime and all) but now I see that it actually does have black tea in it. Gotta say, the tulsi and spices really do drown out the actual tea, but not in a bad way. I actually really like the combination of minty/herbal from the tulsi and warm/spicy from the rest of the spice blend. It’s well-balanced, so no one flavour is really standing out over all the rest. I’ve been drinking it steeped fairly light (2.5g in 8oz for 3min) and without any additives, but I’m curious to try stovetop-boiling with milk and sugar for a more traditional chai preparation. This is good. It’s weird, because I used to be a big fan of masala chai (back before I got seriously into tea), and I’ve lost interest in it recently, but I’m looking forward to trying some of these Golden Tips blend.
