Tazo - Chai (Organic)
I've been drinking Tazo's Chai for a long time; only thing is, I'd been
drinking the kind made from a concentrate. So having it bagged was
a new experience for me.
And a good one, at that.
I think the spice blend is somewhat different in the bags; there may be
the same spices, but I'd say they're in different amounts. (I was
reminded of a gingerbread cookie, which I don't get from the
concentrate.) And honestly, I really like it this way. It's
not quite as sharp as the concentrate is; the spices don't burn my
throat or mouth, but there's still definitely a good spicy flavor.
As usual for me, this
spiced tea gets milk and sugar added. And I was a bit surprised at
how well it held up to the milk, actually. Bigelow's Spiced Chai
(one of the only other bagged chai flavors I've tried) washed out
straight away. But this one did really well; I actually came back
and added a bit more than what I'd started with.
In short: Nice
bagged chai. If I didn't already have a box of chai in my
cupboard, I'd go buy a box of this.
