This tea contains black tea, ginger, cinnamon, and cardamom. When smelling the tea leaves, what stands out is the ginger and cardamom. The leaves have a rich, bold aroma. I steeped 1 1/2 teaspoon in 2 cups of almost boiling water for 4 minutes. The water turned a dark brown almost immediately. The smell of the tea steeping was spicy and the smell of ginger dominated the blend. I was expecting the flavor to be strong and spicy. I was pleasantly surprised when the taste turned out to be sweet with a spicy aftertaste. The black tea is strong but smooth and buttery. This blend has a very earthy essence to it. It is a warming, soothing brew.
For my second cup of this tea, I added some honey and cream. This brought out more cinnamon flavors. The honey blended deliciously with the ginger. I could just drink this lovely chai all day. Like most people who have a food that they consider their comfort food, chai is my comfort tea.
