Earl Grey Chai

description

Like an object of immense aesthetic value, this Earl Grey is imbued with a sense of culture and personality, borne of something very British and something very Indian. Citrusy and fragrant like an Earl Grey and hearty like a cup of masala chai, this blend overwhelms the senses with a flavor jamboree.

I got this in the Chai Sampler pack. It seemed like such an interesting combination to me, but it works really well. The spices really perk up the taste of Earl Grey tea. We are enjoying it very much, I will definitely order more of this.

An Unusual But Pleasing Combination

The combination of citrus and chai is not an obvious one, but the result is very drinkable. At first taste, I thought this blend was just strange, but by the third cup it had really grown on me. The inclusion of both warm spices and floral bergamot produces a unique scent and flavor - it reminds me of the transition from winter into spring. If you like both Earl Grey and chai teas, give this one a try.

Quality Earl Grey and chai at the same time. It's an interesting combination, resulting in a rich, fragrant and complex drink.
