I love chai but I have to admit that I tend to be rather lazy in my preparation of it. I can't recall the last time I actually boiled milk with the spices to have a real cup of chai. However since I have the day off, I decided to actually prepare chai the 'real' way. And I had just the sample for it.

My sample was sealed so well that I knew I was in for a treat as far as freshness. This blend contains organic Assam, cardamon, cinnamon, cloves, ginger, and peppercorns. And they don't skimp on the spices as they are all large bits and pieces of goodness. To the dry nose I am able to pick out the cardamon, the cinnamon and the cloves.

I did prepare this the traditional way by combining water, milk and the blend, and then boiling it for three minutes. I followed the instructions to the tea though I do regret not doubling the recipe as I use a larger mug for my tea. My mug now has the wonderful aromas of cinnamon and cloves filling the air.

I think that I have finally found a chai with a heavy enough spice load for me. This is not a blend for the faint of heart. The cardamon and cloves are the predominant tastes with the sharp bite of the peppercorns appearing as a lingering aftertaste.

This is one yummy chai! I don't think that I would drink it every day simply because the prep takes a bit more work but for weekends it is perfect. I know that this is one that I will be picking up for my own use.
