4 Tasting Notes

189 tasting notes

Aroma when Dry: Bright, balanced spicy, with a creaminess
After water is first poured: creamy, sweet, slight spice
At end of steep: smooth creamy spice/sweet evening out.

Staple? Yes, might stock up on some more for the year– unsure as of yet, as it is weaker, and milder then I make when I do stovetop chai.

Time of day preferred: Afternoon, evening
first notes: sweet, light, creamy, velvety and mild. Can taste cinnamon, slight ginger. No bitterness from the black.
As it cools? notes blend, but the cardamom and black tea surface a bit more, bringing in a bolder hint of bite.
Additives used (milk, honey, sugar etc)? A few oz of steamed milk, and half a teaspoon of raw sugar
Lingers? Yes, velvet and creaminess stay, but the spice disappears quickly.

A very drinkable chai, with a nice amount of spice. This is wonderful for warming in the winter. There’s no particular spice note that’s predominate in this blend, just a good mix. Delightful with a splash of milk.

I tend to mentally categorize Chai teas into one of three categories: Sweet Chai (blends that are heavy on the cinnamon and/or contain vanilla), Savory Chai (blends that are heavier on the ginger or cardamom), and Balanced Chai (blends that strike a happy medium between the two; these tend to be my favorite!). Holiday Chai from Numi is definitely on the savory end of the spectrum, with a heavy cardamom flavor, a strong bite of ginger, and an unexpected anise note that pops out mainly in the aftertaste. This is a Chai that I’d have to add sweetener to before really enjoying it. I’ll finish what I have, but this isn’t something I’ll be reaching for again.

Flavors: Anise, Cardamom, Ginger, Spicy

Brewed like normal black tea with milk added afterward. Unlike other chai I’ve tried, the anise stood out the most in this one.
