I’ve been on a spicy tea kick lately as you may have noticed if you follow my tea log. Originally I bought this thinking it would be nice mixed in with other teas to ceate a chai but I figured I should drink it on its’ own at least once.

The package is bursting full of spices including whole cloves. The anise definitely provides a licorice-y note. I’m not sure I even know what Sarsaparilla tastes like so it’s difficult to know what type of a part it is playing in this blend. I

I did not follow the traditional chai making instructions that are on the S+V website, I steeped it the regular way and then added soymilk but it’s still pretty good this way. I’m glad to know I can drink this plain but I think it will be even more awesome mixed with black tea or some rooibos just to tone it down a wee bit…

Sarsaparilla is the precursor to root beer – it’s the natural way of making it basically, as opposed to artificial flavors. So if you’ve had root beer, you know what sarsaparilla tastes like. :)

The first time I had this, I found it to be really lacking in flavor since it’s just spices with no tea or rooibos to give it body. Ever since then, I’ve been overleafing, oversteeping, and adding almond milk. These steps make it taste pretty good really. It’s not very spicy or overly bold, but I enjoy the spice combination. It’s become a pretty reliable choice when I want something warm.
