Another buy from Homesense. It was on sale for 3.00. Really… 50g of chai for 3.00.. I pay more for a Starbucks. So good buy first off.
This morning was my first morning of my health kick, so I was up nice and early. I decided to reward my dedication with my new tea.
When I first smell this tea, I get ginger right away. I can see pieces of clove, a few cardamom pods and maybe cinnamon bark. It doesn’t smell particularly spicy. I’m was worried when I saw that there was mate in it because I find the taste of mate unappealing. The tea leaves are rolled quite long.
When I taste it, it’s pretty… for lack of better word… bland? No spice to it at all. I had it with a coconut milk creamer because I am off dairy for 3 weeks. It’s still worth the 3.00 I paid, however it’s definitely an uninspiring blend. I haven’t put any sugar in it because this is also something I am eliminating for 3 weeks, so maybe sweetness would perk it up? For now it’s a middle of the pack tea.
