It’s Chai season so I figured I’d work on finishing the bag I have of this. It’s almost gone and I realized I hadn’t reviewed it.
I don’t like this one but that is partially due to personal preference and partially due to the base. The black tea is somewhat bitter and the chili and spices in this create a very pepper-heavy taste. I do taste the elderberry and it’s quite nice but unfortunately, it’s rather hidden by the spices. I don’t think it meshes well with the spices. I’d love to see an elderberry chai that is more balanced spice-wise. I could see 52 Teas doing this flavor combination justice.
