From Twinings

The flavours of traditional Indian spices and almond are a perfect partner to this full bodied Assam tea.

Sweet, but not too sweet, this exotic and heady combination is Chai Latte as it should be.

Finally remembered to buy some milk, so this one finally got a turn this morning. It’s promoted as a latte, so that’s how I made it up – 1 tea bag in 1/2 a cup of boiling water, topped up with hot milk. It certainly smells nice, although the ingredients list is a touch dubious – “almond, spice, and honey flavourings”, anyone? Why not just the actual things? The bag contains little white specks in addition to the black tea leaves, so I guess that’s something to do with it.

In terms of taste, it’s okay. It’s a fairly mild chai, but it does have quite strong almond notes which makes it a little bit unique. I might add less milk next time – maybe a slightly more western-style preparation – in the hope that the spices will shine a little bit more. It’s warming and comforting, if a little lacklustre. I think maybe I’ve just tried a lot of other chai blends which wowed me more, and so this one’s not quite living up to my expectations. Still, you’ve got to try these things!

Late night Chai, my reward for finally clearing away more boxes today. I get my new combi boiler installed on Monday so I need to make space, cost £4000 but should have cheaper bills in the long run. Plus I’m booking a holiday to the Canary Islands next week, picked the place and dates today :D I’ve never been on holiday abroad with my husband, it’s out 12 year anniversary in March so we leave then.

Sorry, just excited. Anyway this tea is called latte and it suggests making it as such, one third water and teabag for at least 3 minutes and then top up with warm and frothy milk. Simple.

I sniffed the bag before I steeped it, it was delicious! It had a pure sweet almond scent with a gentle hint of spice. Mostly sweet over the spice.

In flavour my first words were “Oh My God!” It’s amazing! It tastes sweet and nutty (very almond) but the spices have become more recognizable. So you have sweet almond, light black pepper and cardamom with a cinnamon finish. It tastes like an authentic Chai, the type that they serve in local Indian restaurants. It’s so full of flavour though it’s never too much. I think I’ve found my perfect Chai. I love Chai and have tried many but this is the best, it has everything I love in a Chai and it’s authentic flavour is top notch.

Wow, I was really not expecting to like this one but it blew me away. A new favourite Chai, will have to hoard this as soon as I run out.

Flavors: Almond, Black Pepper, Cardamon, Cinnamon
