This tea bag I got as thank you for postcard from postcrossing member. From Belarus.
“If you are helping somebody, you are awakening somebody.” – a quote on tag.
I had no idea what to expect, so I just put it into cup, filled with boiling water and enjoyed tea with soft baked cookies with blueberries and cranberries. And white chocolate. Cookies were very enjoable (well, they were bought in Lidl), not sweet as some others.
The tea was letdown though. I steeped it for quite long time, but it was far from great tea. I mean, no funky notes, but still bit – too mild? Yep, this blend of chai was very mild and sweet (Stevia leaf in). I blame the stevia for overpowering the stingy notes of ginger and cloves. It was too mild (although some chais are too spicy for me). Sad.
Maybe rooibos is as well to blame (as stevia) as it is not really good as base for chai. I expect some maltiness, but nothing of it was there, of course.
Flavors: Rooibos, Sweet
