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.
Christmas Chai – Steeped Tea
Ingredients: Black Tea [assam style], ginger, cardamom, black pepper, white pepper, clove, nutmeg.
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
