MY REVIEW BEGINS
Here is what I think
The scent of this tea had me shaking my head, it was fruity and sweet, I rechecked the label “chai”, well.. okay then.
Once again the scent does not match the tea and you just cannot smell a tea and pick a winner or disregard because of scent.
This medium brewed tea has a lovely cinnamon strong savor. It’s a warmth leaves your tongue alive. There is a slight bitterness but no aftertaste. I love the fact that this is a loose-leaf tea, and something that would usher in fall.
What I liked
The cinnamon is strong in this tea and it warms your soul, I love a tea that can move you and you can feel it in your soul.
What I did not like
I’d not call this a chai tea, it’s not a bad tea at all but it is cinnamon strong and the other spices are yet waiting for their turn.
Until next sip pinkies up and face the wind! You got this!
P.S. I’ve included an average brewing instruction chart below to help you brew your teas.
