2 oz of loose leaf tea
Recommended steep time: 5-8 minutes depending how bold you prefer your chai
I opened up the Spiced Chai Tea box and was intrigued by not only the tea, which was reminiscent of a Sylhet tea a friend got me from Bangladesh, but also all of the spices, with two cardamom pods greeting me on top of the tea blend. The scent was incredible, bringing me back to the first time I had a chai tea in a high school summer camp. The first pour really hit the spices hard, almost to an imbalance with the tea. But adding in a spoon of demerara sugar made so much of a difference, with the sweetness balancing the flavors. Even more so did the milk, making a spiced chai latte that mellows out the harshness of the pure tea blend, resulting in a full and amazing experience!
The taste was ok, nothing special about this chai tea
Spiced Chai Tea
This was gifted to me and it has easily become my new favorite tea. So happy that I have this tea for the colder seasons, it is such a cozy tea. Disclaimer, I only really drink tea lattes, so that is how I drank this tea. So if you were wondering if it would be good as a latte, I can say that it tastes amazing!
