This is an okay chai, but not my favorite. I prefer to have some cinnamon, and I’m not so sure what I think about the peppermint . Also, the cardamom is a little overpowering because it’s been chopped into tiny pieces rather than added whole. The black tea itself is pretty bland. This time I steeped the tea in a teapot and then added milk. I think next time I’ll probably steep it over the stove in water and milk because it’s a little too weak for milk and honey this way. I may also add some additional black tea like assam — and maybe a cinnamon stick — because I’ve got 4 ounces of this stuff to use. I don’t dislike it. It’s just not very interesting and can be improved with some doctoring.
Mighty Leaf is bad for using natural flavoring, so at least this doesn’t have any of that.
By the way, all the ingredients are organic, but they weren’t all available in the drop down menu, so I added them just as “Black Pepper” and so on.
