Taster’s Review:

When I saw this chai blend on the Tea Oh! website, I knew I had to try it.  I love spiced chai teas, I love chocolate, and I love caramel – so I needed to try this chai!

In chai tea, the spices can be very aggressive – aggressive enough to overpower the chocolate and caramel in a blend such as this.  Fortunately, that doesn’t happen here.  There is a very pleasing balance of flavors – the caramel is sweet and creamy, the chocolate is rich and smooth, and the masala spices are warm and inviting.

I can taste ginger, cinnamon and cardamom in this blend, however, they aren’t particularly spicy or hot… just warm enough to remind this taster that she’s drinking a chai tea.  And yes… I can taste the tea too!  The black tea base is strong enough to stand its ground with these other powerful flavors.  It has a nice briskness to it.

I enjoyed this tea immensely and I’ve just consumed the last that I had!  I might just have to put this one on my shopping list.  It has a very comforting, autumnal feel to it… like one I’d like to curl up to while sitting in front of a roaring fire in the fireplace and reading a good book!

I do recommend going latte with this particular tea, and adding a splash of milk or cream (or half & half) to your cup.  It really enhances the chocolate and caramel flavors and makes it taste just a bit like a gourmet hot chocolate!  DELIGHTFUL!
