Sipdown! (4 | 406)
I’ve been sipping this one with milk & sugar, but I figured I’d steep it up plain for this sipdown note. I’m not generally a tea with additions sort of person, but I’ve been enjoying have a warm milky chai as my first tea of the day lately, probably because of the rainy weather we’ve been having. And now that this tea is done, I’ll probably continue doing so with another chai blend ha ha…
Anyway! This is a nice chai with the spices at the forefront. As promised, ginger is leading the way with its earthy spicy notes. I wouldn’t call this a “spicy” chai overall. I think it strikes a nice balance of having the spices be the stars of the show and potent enough to hold up to milk, but also being mellow enough to sip plain. Alongside the ginger, I can taste the cardamom and clove, with the cinnamon adding a subtle sweetness. I don’t particularly notice the anise, which is surprisingly since it’s the second ingredient.
An enjoyable chai, but I’m not sure I would reorder it, mostly because I have several other chai blends in my cupboard.
