I have chai-anxiety. I really do. And I shouldn’t, since so many of the chais I’ve tried lately have been good. So I’ve brewed up a mug of *LiberTEAS*’s chai that she sent me a sample of in a fantastic swap box…and I’m sitting here sniffing it, gathering the courage to sip. The scent is very good, definitely spicy.
sigh Taste is not as spicy as I feared from the scent. It’s smooth and calming. The flavors aren’t just blended together, it’s like they’re melded into one solid taste. Nothing is standing out and screaming “I’m here, taste me, taste me!!”, and nothing is really in the background whispering “I’m here, too, but I don’t want to play right now”.
LiberTEAS, you named this one right. I think I’m more in love with the Alberta Street Chai (it’s the Lapsang Souchong, I can’t help it), but I can see myself having an on-going fling with this chai. Yet another reason I’m sad that you’ve closed up shop.
