drank Chai by Twinings
9 tasting notes

I recieved a few bags of this chai as part of a gift, along with a tea pot and two other tea samples. It is among the teas that I keep in my “Hot Beverage Station” at work. I decided to finally try this tea yesterday, and again today.

For some reason I remember it being better yesterday – perhaps I gave the water a bit of a stir before pouring? It seems like it was stronger yesterday than it is today; which isn’t to say that it’s very strong. Rather, it’s very gentle, instead of being overpowering (as compared to the STASH brand I also have, which is stronger). It possesses more aroma than flavour – I can smell the lovely spices of the chai, but the actual taste is rather thin and flat.

Strength aside, this tea is delightfully free of bitterness and lends itself well to sweetening. I normally add milk and sugar to my tea – a tiny bit of milk to ease the bitterness, and sugar to sweeten the deal, so to speak. But a lack of milk had me adding sugar only, with favourable results. The flavour of this chai is so mild that adding milk would probably have been a mistake.

Recommended for those who enjoy milder flavours.

Since my small collection of teas seems to be expanding, I thought it was time to join Steepster. We will see how I do!

I drink black teas almost exclusively, but I’d like to expand my tastes a bit. I’m working on a “Hot Beverage Station” at my desk which includes several teas, hot chocolate, sugar, a teapot, and a cup. Next, I hope to add a USB fridge for milk!
