From Metropolitan Tea Company

Full bodied tea enhances South Indian masala. The finish has cardamom notes peeking out from lively ginger. Superb with milk and sugar.

This has been sitting on my shelf since I bought it on my New Years weekend trip to Prince George, BC. I’m not quite sure why it took me this long to try it, seeing as I do have a particular and intense love for chai teas.

It is a very typical chai, with a difference in a slight yet noticeable scent of sweetness. Despite, I brew my cups of chai with a teaspoon each of leaves and rock sugar.

The brew is extremely dark and clean, and quite a handsome tone at that. The aroma is comfortingly warm and strong and spicy, like you’re getting a liquid hug.

Normally, I don’t put milk in chai; only when it’s added in restaurants and tea places. But, we had a carton of soy drink sitting in the fridge, and I have never had soy in tea, so I had to try it.

The soy definitely calms the spices down, not so much as to diminish the overall flavor, but to give it discipline. It helps the soy has a nutty flavor that adds to the strong black tea and spices.

It has been too long since my last chai tea. Thankfully, this is quite a respectable and strong chai, and quite superb with sugar and milk, or soy.

4tsp for 3 cup water. Leaves are small bits. You can smell the cloves and a little cinnamon. The liquor is dark amber and you can smell the cloves. I definitely need milk or sugar in this. The flavor is good but very strong.

Much better with milk and sugar. The clove and typical chai flavor is still there but it is lighter and doesn’t leave a funky taste in the mouth.

I am liking this tea more and more. I am a HUGE Starbucks chai latte freak and this tea with milk and sugar might be an alternative to that drink. I can’t drink them side by side because then I would really notice the difference but right now I want to just keep drinking it.

This was a tea that was accidentally sent instead of the caffeine-free one that my mom ordered. Since she doesn’t drink caffeinated teas she gave it to me. It’s a 4oz bag so I have quite a bit of it. This tea came from Beantown Tea but it looks VERY similar to this Metropolitan Chai so I decided to just review it here.
I drank this cup with soymilk. The spices tickle your throat a bit and linger, The powdered ginger is the main flavor throughout the cup. I think next time I’d add a bit of maple syrup but the soymilk helped tone down the ginger. There were a lot of powdered spices in my teaspoon for this cup so the bottom of the mug is quite powdery. It’s not really what I look for in a chai typically but would probably be really good as a latte (with frothed milk)

Peppery and flavourful, so yummy with sweetened condensed milk in it…I use 1 teaspoonful per cup.
