I am getting close to the bottom of the bag, and somehow I don’t get a whole lot of cinnamon from this cup. I think most of the cinnamon pieces floated to the top of the bag, and I drank all of them last winter. This is one yummy cinnamon cup of soothing tea for a nice cold day. I think I liked the cinnamon more than the chai taste, which is still nice , but cinnamon says chilly fall days and warming up with a nice cup of tea.
If I get this again I’ll make more of an effort to equally distribute the cinnamon in each cup.

Another from the chai sampler, and still plenty to go! This one called to me today, and I can understand why since it’s pretty cold and I rather like cinnamon! The two seem to go together. It’s another with a CTC base; I’m beginning to suspect that most of them are, but I’m okay with that on the whole. I like my chai strong, and CTC definitely helps with that. I added milk to this one, although I don’t always. Call me odd.

In practice, I didn’t get a lot of cinnamon from this one – or at least, not as much as I was perhaps expecting. What I did get was cardamom, and lots of it. There is some cinnamon, but it comes across almost flat tasting, somehow. It’s hard to describe exactly, but it almost tasted slightly stale? Like it had been open too long, and the cinnamon had faded, or gone slightly fusty? I bought these fairly recently, but obviously I don’t know how long they were stored prior to that – most of the teas I’ve had from Vahdam have been fine, though, so I don’t think it’s a storage or age issue. Maybe this one’s just not for me? It happens.

I could perhaps pep this up a little by adding some extra cinnamon, but I feel I shouldn’t really have to do that. I’ll give it more of a chance before I write it off completely, but so far (and so sadly…) this one’s not a favourite.

I am still exploring the chai selection that I got from Vahdam – this is only my second tea that I’ve sampled from the whole bunch. In fact, this is only my second chai tea, period. Beyond a few cups that I’ve had at various Indian restaurants, I really don’t have much experience at all with this genre of tea.

That said, this is pleasant enough. To be honest, I noticed the spiciness of the cardamom more so than the cinnamon, which sort of hung out as an underlying base flavor and came more to the fore in the finish and aftertaste.

The flavor itself I found kind of mild. The only additions to the black tea were cardamom and cinnamon. Frankly, I think the additional spice in traditional chai helps to round out the flavor and add more depth.

So, if traditional chai with its cloves and stuff is a little too in-your-face for you, this might be a good alternative.
