From Mariage Frères

This original, highly esteemed tea serves as the ambassador of Thai taste.

Reflecting the kingdom’s joie-de-vivre, it is prepared with theatrical, delightful gestures on roadside tea stalls. It should be drunk hot, sugary and milky, or iced. This true elixir of happiness has a unique flavour of malt and chocolate.

Cha Thai is a ticket to travel in the Land of Free Men.

On the 18th day of December, my tea advent calendar gave to me… a tea sample from MissB! That I don’t believe I have tried before. Unfortunately, if this tea was supposed to have any chai-like flavouring, it was absent. However, the base was pretty tasty, so I’m not sad to have a cup of it left. It was malty and flavourful. Not rating since I assume I’m not getting the full story here.

A tea from MissB! Thank you!

So since I love the intensity of a balled CTc tea, it’s no surprise that I love this one. im drinking it right now hot, with brown sugar and coconut milk. I need to open a can of sweetened condensed milk I think… That would be divine.

The flavour is super malty and thick, lightly spiced. I don’t know that I taste chocolate notes, but this is what I think of (minus the star anise!) when I think of a Thai tea.

Yum! So glad I snagged the rest of it at the tea meet.

2 minutes at 195F. Definitely resteepable. I’ll be making iced tea at some point as well.

still loving this, this is really an incredibly good morning tea.

OMGsrsly

This is the one that’s such tiny little balls that it’s almost a powder? I have some, but I’ve been logging it as something else I think…

cteresa

This is very tiny tea, looks like a ctc, but MF calls it a BOPF so I believe them, looks like powder almost (which is probably what gives it its kick). But they are not tiny balls, they are not rolled and are not unrolled, the leftovers are almost like ground coffee or something.

It does not sound appealing, and they sell it for noticeably more than other much larger leaf teas, but this is just fantastic as it is.

OMGsrsly

I’ll have to look at what I have then. It’s just labelled “thai chai” on my package, but my package is a ziplock baggie from some unknown source… :)

cteresa

Chai this is not, nothing else added and possibly it´s not a bad idea, a thai themed chai.

this has no added flavour, just pure black malty tea! with a lot of caffeine I think!

OMGsrsly

Chai just means tea, so I think it’s “Thai tea”. I’ll have to dig it out and have it soon. Maybe post some pictures on Instagram. :)

cteresa

Maybe it will mean the same to some people including who labelled your sample, but in general chai is not the same as cha.

Cha is the original cantonese word, and countries which got tea directly from China tend to use it. Chai is the word, based on cha used in India-Persia area, and at least in the western world now mostly means a type of spiced tea like chai masala. But it´s not universal. Notice how MF called this “cha”, not “chai”!

OMGsrsly

After looking at the website, and inspecting my tea, I think mine is just a misspelling on the baggie. :D

Another from MissB I was pretty sure i wouldn’t love this one based on the appearance and small alone, but hey, must try everything! This is a super fine tea and brewed up, it behaves a little like stacy’s messy red tea whose name escapes me lol. This to me is a tea best had with milk and sugar, something i don’t often do. I suspect that this a good one drunk that way and suggest that anyone getting this after me, try it that way, rather than straight! :) thanks missb!
