Holy cinnamon Batman. Cinnamon is all I taste, but I kind of like it. Why? Because it’s not just any kind of cinnamon. It’s almost exactly like the cinnamon-flavoured ribbon candy you can find around the holidays. Maybe a little bit like cinnamon hearts but definitely more like the ribbon candy than anything else.

I don’t even know what else is supposed to be in here but perhaps it doesn’t matter. For a bagged tea, this is crazily strong. I haven’t added any milk or sugar to this, but drinking this straight makes me wonder if this is basically the kind of blend, ratio-wise, that most restaurants/cafes serve as “chai” (whether it being a Starbucks or an Indian restaurant) because the majority of them turn out to taste like cinnamon milk. I’m sure the same would happen with this.

As it cools, it tastes more like ground cinnamon. And now it’s all gone. Would I have it again? Actually, I would. I wouldn’t buy it, but it’s not bad. Not bad at all. Thanks, MissB!

OH THANK GOODNESS I’m not the only person who feels like most of the chai out there just tastes like warm milk with cinnamon. Which is sometimes exactly what I’m after, but usually I expect more spice action going on!

(And then there’s this one place near my office and I SWEAR their chai tastes like spiced banana and it’s so confusing and oddly really delicious)

Right? It’s like the lot of them just give up halfway through the spice blending process and decide that cinnamon is good enough.

Spiced banana chai sounds awesome! I wouldn’t mind trying that myself.

The funny thing is that it’s not SUPPOSED to taste like banana and I’m honestly not sure why it does – but it’s lush!
