Day 24 of Sara’s Old Tea came with a big sachet of Hoji Matcha Chai!
No longer available from Tea Chai Te, this can still probably be purchased if you make a phone order, as they still have everything needed to make it.
I brewed it and added a bit of almond milk, just enough to cool it down to my preferred temperature.
The chai flavors blend together so well, that I had to take several sips to try to tease out what’s in there. I taste clove, ginger, and licorice, with a bit of woody flavor from the houjicha near the end of the sip. It tastes like… sitting and talking with Sara with a pot of tea at Tea Chai Te in Portland, the one on NW 23rd Avenue, a block from Salt & Straw ice cream.
I finished my glass before finishing the review.
Flavors: Clove, Ginger, Licorice, Wood
