Tea Review: Gingerbread Chai (Afternoon To Remember)

Advent Tea Calendar Day 7

Gingerbread Chai
Afternoon to Remember
Type:  Flavored Black
Origin:  India
Product Description:  Gingerbread Chai is twist on our Masala Chai. It is a blend of our Masala Chai with exotic spices and gingerbread. It is a great holiday treat!

Temperature: 208° F
Amount: 3 grams
Steeping Time: 3 minutes

The dry leaves are blended with ginger root, cinnamon, cardamom, vanilla, gingerbread and creme flavors.

The infusion is red-orange with an aroma of gingerbread and cream.  The flavor is smooth with notes of cinnamon, ginger, and cardamom with a hint of vanilla.

While this tea is well suited for milk and sugar, I found it flavorful and enjoyable with only moderate astringency on its own when steeped for three minutes.  

Afternoon to Remember closed May 2016.  Inspirations Tea Room/Teaoli began selling the same tea blends after May 24, 2016.
