Steep Time: 4 minutes
First Sip Thought: "Warm, cozy and spicy!"
Smell: The fragrant is beyond amazing. I did not expect anything less though coming from a Chai tea and after I read the ingredients. I was glad to not be disappointed. It's a well balanced blend of each spice included.
Taste: I have not had a chai in a long time and the moment I took my first sip from this cup I was instantly hooked and started regretting not making an entire pot for myself! This Desi Masala Chai has a burst of so many spicy flavours! It's the perfect balance of sweet and spicy. It's a great pick me up for an early morning day as it's bold taste surely perked me up. It's never an overpowering taste of a certain spice which I love a lot because in the past, some chai teas for me were way too cinnamon-y. I made this tea with sugar and warmed up milk which made it even more heavenly and definitely so creamy! I would recommend this tea to anyone, especially for a cold wintery morning when you just want to stay in bed all day and not go out there. This tea is like a motivator in a cup. Go for it!
Verdict: 5 out of 5 tea leaves
