Chai Tourney continued… Battle of the Vanilla Chais (The tea girl v
Realized that it is actually pretty difficult for me to not switch up the tea I am drinking during the week so my chai tourney went wayside pretty quickly a few weeks ago. But I am finally back! Reminder this match was between The tea girl’s Vanilla Chai and Hugo’s Vanilla Chai.
Preparation: Western, Oatmilk and Honey
Tasting note: Wow. This tea is on another level from the vanilla chai from the tea girl. All the flavors mingle very well and it has this Vanilla smokiness that reminds me of a fancy perfume or cocktail both in taste and aroma. It has a little star anise to sweet it slightly but not overpower, the ginger, pepper and cinnamon again mingle very well to create a very nice balance of spice. The tea is still really good with oatmilk and honey but I think could be served straight as well and not be too much.
I think we have a winner for the first round of vanilla chais: The Hugo Tea Co’s Vanilla Chai. This tea was much stronger than the tea girl and the flavor was distinct, not-overpowering and delicious.
PS. Hopefully I can pick up more of this before they discontinue it, to replace with a masala chai. :o
