I was reaching into my tea cupboard to get my usual morning tea when I accidentally knocked out a small sample packet. I was surprised to see that it was a chai blend from our very own LiberTeas. I honestly have no memory of getting this tea so it must have come my way as part of a swap or Traveling Teabox.
I’ve been looking for a good black tea chai but I can never seen to find one that’s just right. I know it’s largely a matter of personal tastes but I find that most chais have too much of one spice or flavouring and it ends up dominating the tea. This tea on the other hand is very well balanced with each of the various spices getting their say. It’s a surprisingly versatile tea – light enough to to be drunk plain but strong enough that it holds up well to the addition of some milk and honey.
This really is a masterpiece of a tea. I hope that Liberteas might consider remaking this tea or something like it in the near future – perhaps when she takes over 52Teas from Frank. I could see this being a winner.
