Made on the stovetop per the Samovar extra black tea recipe with Teavana Assam Gold Rain as the extra black tea.
The dry mixture smells mostly of cinnamon with a touch of ginger.
Not as spicy as the Rishi and not as rich as the Samovar, but a tasty, mild blend. It reminds me of the Golden Moon Kashmiri Chai in terms of flavor, but I prefer the GM. On the continuum of very spicy to less spicy, this is less spicy than the Golden Moon, which I already found to be pretty mild. There is pepper listed among the ingredients, but I wasn’t at all aware of its presence.
I’d probably choose another blend over this one for my staple milder chai, but I wouldn’t at all mind drinking this if it were offered to me.
