Ember Spice Chai

description

An exotic blend made with high-quality Darjeeling black tea and crushed spices that include cinnamon, cardamom and peppercorns. The aroma of the infusion is redolent with a notable cardamom perfume as well as roasted, nutty nuances. Look for high-fired smoky accents and spicy warmth across the palate profile of this tea. It's an impressively decadent and harmonious tea for a flavorful sip any time of the day.

taste

High-fired leaves lend a smoky quality to the tea, seized shortly by flavors of cardamom and cinnamon. The infusion turns nutty, biscuity in the middle, but finishes on peppery note. The flavors are reckless but not brisk. A dash of cream arrests this rashness cleverly.

COMPLEMENTS

Pumpkin pie, clam chowder, desserts with raspberry and strawberry.

This is a delicious, unique chai. Spicy, nutty, malty and a bit smokey. I've never had anything like it, and I LOVE it! Soothing and comforting with a rich taste. Highly recommended if you like chai and want something a bit different than the usual!

a more delicate chai

Best Served : Afternoon.

The gentler Darjeeling leafs blend nicely with the nutty spices. This is a fine afternoon- medium caffeine chai.

Smells like cardamom and tea leaves. I steeped for 6 minutes in a half gallon of 95C water. I added a tiny bit of sugar and let it chill in the fridge. It is very enjoyable as a refreshing cold tea. I love this after working in the yard. I mixed with half and half and it was amazing as well. Not too spicy, cinnamon is not overpowering, and I can taste the roasty nuttiness of the black tea. It is a great blend.

Unique, One of the More Subtle Chais

Likes : Great Aroma, Smooth Body, High Quality, Unique Flavor Profile.

This is an interesting and unique chai blend, and an excellent value. The tea base has a light smokiness which blends unexpectedly well with the spices. The tea is not very strong and the spices are not overpowering, so the flavor profile is well-balanced, comforting, and unlike anything else I've ever tasted. I love to drink this tea on cold rainy days, with or without milk.

Very spicy and delicious!

Likes : Unique Flavor Profile.

This chai rocks! It has a ton of different flavors that are all blended perfectly with one another. I like to add a splash of milk personally. I think it helps even out the spiciness of the peppercorns. This tea is totally unique and I believe it is the best chai available on the market. I will definitely look forward to trying this tea again in the future!

Great value, a tea punching above its weight.

Best Served : Evening.

One of my goto destressers afer a rough day. it's quite heavily spiced, but not so heavy it overbears the teaAfter my first chai sampler, this was the best value tea in the pack, but of course, each to his own. Packaging is excellent. vacuum sealed (maybe that's a bonus if your in a cargo bay at 30,000 feet?) ready to be transferres into the provided 100g sealing bag and label

Very smoky tea

Likes : Unique Flavor Profile.

I didn't like this at all because I dislike the smoky tea flavor (e.g. Russian Caravan style teas), and this tea has a significant smoky flavor. However, if you do like smoky teas, then you will probably like this tea because the combination of chai with smoky is a very unique flavor profile, and the chai aspect of it was tasty.
