I wouldn’t call this a very chocolatey chai but it DOES have an interesting flavor to it. There is a relatively nice spiciness to it, a nice balance in flavor of the spices and the black tea has a nice depth to it while not being too astringent. The brew color is an amber brown. The base black tea here seems slightly deeper than Zen’s vanilla chai or coconut chai. I don’t see too many cocoa elements in the blend and didn’t see any of the mini meringues in my two teaspoons. Maybe it’s just my sample. The second steep has even more of a full flavor. I MUST use the suggested two teaspoons though… maybe even more. I like this one. I’m sipping a couple more chai blends before the temp hits 75 this week!
Steep #1 // 2 teaspoon for a full mug// 10 minutes after boiling // 4 minute steep
Steep #2 // 10 minutes after boiling // 6+ minute steep
Zentealife.com is having a clearance on their teas! Use code ‘CLEARANCE’ for 50%-80% off the teas. I guess they won’t be selling teas for a while and are focusing on their teaware. This is sad because I like many of their blends.
