Tasters Review:

I have been seeing SANDS OF THYME mentioned online by a few fellow tea freaks lately so when we were able to try some of the Sands of Thyme Teas I was more than happy!

I LOVE their shop name on Etsy!  I just have to point that out!

So far one of my favorites is their Chai Indienne.

It’s light on aroma but not on taste!   The spices are JUST RIGHT for me!  The cinnamon is a little bit stronger than the ginger.  The cardamom and cloves are in there too – as well as the black pepper.  I appreciate these specific ingredients not being too strong.   I can taste floral notes as well!  The rose petals are a nice touch.  The vanilla is noticeable in the middle of the sip and more-so as it cools.  I applaud the vanilla in this case – it helps with the other spicy spices and really added to the mix of flavors!

This is a good chai, indeed!
