448 Tasting Notes
Sipped this tea during a zoom meeting that required a little emotional support! This had a large chunk of star anise in it, so it was very chai-y and tasty. It does make me worry that other cups will be quite variable though.
It definitely has a sweet buttercream flavor. I can’t say I get much caramel specifically, so I would consider this more of a Buttercream Chai. Overall, it’s not bad, I just wish I got more caramel flavor
I found a cute little tea shop about 5 minutes from my apartment, just nestled in between a liquor store and a grocery store that I’ve somehow always missed. I stopped in and grabbed a few of my favorite flavors to give them a try. I got this tea, a coconut chai, and a lapsang souchong, so fingers crossed at least one of them is tasty!
I steeped this for 4 and a half minutes with milk and it’s turning out a little weak. I think I may have put in too much milk unfortunately. I get a hint of floral that I think is the lady grey, and no lavender as far as I can tell. I’m not rating this yet because I think this may have been a case of human error.
Next time I’ll either try it with no milk OR go all out and make a full-on latte. We’ll see which one calls to me!
