This was my Friday tea at work yesterday – I needed something to keep me awake, and although I don’t drink coffee, this seemed like a good compromise! I feel like this one’s changed since last time I tried it – the ingredients list is very different now to the one that’s on the tea description page. It’s been slimmed down, shall we say? It’s still a black tea base, but now with only cocoa nibs, caradmon, cinnamon, and coffee beans. Simple enough!
I prepared my cup with milk, since chai without milk seems like the worst contradiction in terms to me. There’s lots of cocoa, which is dark and nicely chocolatey, and it pairs well with the coffee which is also distinctively prominent. It’s definitely still tea, but there is a real mocha vibe going on, which is exactly what I was hoping for.
The spicing is fairly prominent also – cardamon, mostly, but with a touch of cinnamon also. All apsects of this blend seem to complement each other well, and it’s a great morning tea. It helped me to get through Friday, that’s for sure! This is another one I must try and remember not to overlook.
