drank Chai {Duplicate} by Harney & Sons
735 tasting notes

Remember about 3 months ago when I was wondering about why Harney & Sons couldn’t make a decent chai? Well, here we go. Rest in peace, Indian Spice, you have been replaced by a spicier newcomer.

The first thing I notice is that the spices have been ground very finely. So much that I feel like I need a coffee filter to steep it. A lot of the cinnamon falls right through the holes of my infuser to the bottom of my mug.

Flavor-wise, this is a pretty standard, no-frills chai. Cardamom is the strongest spice in the bunch, followed by cinnamon and ginger. I added a splash of 1% milk and they hold up well against it. The black tea base is pretty muted by the in-your-face cardamom. Anyway, while it is well-blended and balanced chai, it’s not my favorite. It’s just really… standard.

Quiet, strange, and in love with the world of tea. Living just outside of Atlanta. Cat lover, electronic music geek, balcony gardener, and collector of fossils. On the hunt for the perfect tea in each of my favorite categories.

After 10 years on Steepster, I have given up. The lack of maintenance, updates, and mobile compatibility have finally discouraged me. I still use my Cupboard and add teas to the database, but I won’t be logging teas anymore.
