Taken from the round two return of the EU-TTB (European Travelling Tea Box). Just an fyi the sign up to join the tea box is open for round three if anyone is interested?
Served this Chai the way I usually take mine, with a few pieces of rock sugar and a splash of milk.
Smell is warming and mildly spicy, more cinnamon and nutmeg like above all else, so I suppose it does have a Christmas aroma.
Flavour wise it’s mild yet dark and the spice notes linger on the tongue. Cinnamon and nutmeg are still present but so is ginger and a little bit of pepper. I am not sure what the actual ingredients are as this tea is no longer sold but taste wise those listed above are what I liken them to (if they don’t contain those anyway). It’s fairly smooth at the start so the black base is not too rich or astringent. Nice strength overall.
In a way it’s like eating a cinnamon Christmas cookie. Oh God!…now I’m thinking of Christmas before my beloved Halloween! Keep calm and stay away from Christmas teas.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Ginger, Nutmeg, Pepper
