This is not technically tea. It is a mix of ground chai spices that you add to any kind of tea or beverage or you can have with just hot water. I picked this one up at a local craft fair this weekend. I had it made with hot water and sugar added. It was quite delicious. It is strongly spiced, very strong ginger taste. The sample was titled sweet ginger chai, even though it was just this mix. The salesperson said to me, “now the ginger is going to tickle your throat”. And he was right. There is a bit of a kick to the ginger but I liked it. It was strong ginger but not burning ginger. He recommended to add it to any type of tea: black, green, red or white.
I am looking forward to mixing this with a few kinds of teas and experimenting with my own chai. But honestly it was great with just hot water. Kind of like a chai cider without the cider part. Hmmmm. Now I want to mix this with hot cider, or hot mulled wine! I am going to be busy experimenting tonight.
