Fall scents—leaves and spice
A dark butterscotch liquor
Chased away my sleep
I took advantage of the closing sale and ended up with 6 tins of Two Guy’s Tea. So…I had a tasting party with my mother on my day off! It was the best day ever and took up way more time then we suspected it would— an average 1.25 hours per tea. xD This was our first one.
The dry tea itself was very spice-filled smelling. However, once we brewed it the suggested amount (3.5 mins), the smell was much more toned down. My mother decided that the exact color of the liquor was “caramelized sugar.” The taste was a little disappointing after how strong the dry tea had smelled, but after adding a little milk (which brought out the tea) and brown sugar (which brought out the spices) it was a fine cup. This makes sense, considering that it’s a chai and should have these things!
We steeped it again for 4.5 mins and got a stronger aroma with a spicier taste, which we both preferred.
