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.  

An Afternoon to Remember will no longer sell tea after May 6, 2016.  Inspirations Tea Room will begin selling the same tea blends after May 24, 2016.
