Like the rest of my Epices de Cru teas, this was a Christmas gift from Marika!
It makes sense that a company like this, which is an artisan spice shop, would carry a bunch of Chai – and I have no doubt that all of them are exceptional quality. Marika has, for a long time, been on a hunt of find a “perfect chai” for me since there are literally THOUSANDS of Chai out there. This was one of those attempts, and it’s honestly not a bad one given that I love rose and rose teas – and this is a Rose chai.
It’s honestly very good, but I will say that it’s probably my least favourite tea I’ve tried from them. Like everything they do, the quality is exceptional – and I can tell that all of the many spices in the blend as just so well balanced and thoughtfully curated. It’s just too much of them for me, without enough rose to compensate. Like, if I want a rose tea I want to be slapped in the face with it – and this is delicate rose undertones to a complex and entrancing chai…
But I will keep playing! Because it is still a very good tea.
