I did not choose to drink this today, but here is why I did:
I had to take my mom to the emergency room today so I told my brother to get in the car and let’s go. Once my dad arrived I was given $20 to get food for us both and wait to see what happens (she will be staying over night) We ended up buying some food for me to cook (because I’m a great cook, pride can apply here) and when we got back I asked if he wanted some chai tea; my brother only drinks chai and bubble tea so that is why I offered it. I told him that I have a pound of chai upstairs I haven’t tried yet because it could be awful so I brought down two chais. This was the first and only one I had to make.

I normally rate teas down for not tasting as advertised, which this is true of because the bacon might not be in this tea… but, this chai is very well balanced and quite smooth with a great spice. Very unexpected as I have an absurd amount of this tea, I would think a lot of a tea would mean it isn’t as good due to pricing.
I used a heaping 15-20g for a 20ounce steeping and added a mere splash of milk to each 8ounce cup we drank. Of course I added whip creme and served it with sea salt caramel wafers :)
I will mark it down for not having the bacon taste, but for what it does taste like it excels.

P.S. I have more than enough to share so if you are ever wanting a chai let me know!

Also, I did not follow the directions. I brewed this at 210f not 195f as advised.

Thanks everyone: It went from a possible lung or heart issue to something in the stomach region. Not sure as to what’s wrong yet, but I’m glad I don’t have to think about heart failure anymore. There is something behind her lung though which isn’t good but apparently everything there checks out fine. I get to watch my niece all day now, grandma can’t hog her today :p

Oh no, I hope they’ll be able to find out what’s going on sooner than later and that she’ll be ok!
