Chai Them All

I have set out to taste test and review as many chai tea blends as possible. I especially love the cozy nature of a warm chai tea, with the spices, and earthy black tea, sweetness like honey and variations on this traditional tea.

Rules for consistency:

Regular way to make tea with hot water

  • 1.5 DAVIDsTEA Perfect Spoons per nordic/16 oz mug (grande or Medium at Sbux), 1 DTPS for a 12 oz mug
  • 90º water boil in Kettle
  • Steep 7 minutes
  • 1 Teavana perfect spoon (1tsp) brown sugar for sweetener
  • 1 splash of 2% milk

Traditional stove top chai

  • 2 DTPS of Chai tea
  • 1.5 cups Soy milk or 2% Milk (will aim for consistently one of these or will note which)
  • 1 tsp brown sugar
  • time tbd

I would like to thank all the lovely Tea-ple of the DAVIDsTEA Fans who sent me or traded samples of chai tea so that I can post this series. All other tea were purchased by me unless noted.

Regular:

Warm black tea with the heat of ginger that lingers on your tongue and the cozy flavour of nutmeg, smooth tingly mouth feel, a gentle kick of pepper, not overbearing. This is a well rounded chai perfect for those chilly winter days. Spice factor: 2/5
