Tea Review: Earl Grey Masala Chai (Vahdam Tea)

Earl Grey Masala Chai
Vahdam Teas
Type: Flavored Black
Origin: India
Product Description:
A unique combination of black tea with the citrusy flavor of bergamot fruit and a zingy piquancy of spices.
Temperature: 208° F
Amount: 3 grams
Steeping Time: 1.5-2 minutes

The dry leaves are blended with cardamom, cinnamon, cloves, black pepper, and bergamot extract.

The dark red liquor has an aroma of sweet cinnamon, cardamom, and bergamot.  The taste is bold and moderately astringent with notes of bergamot and cardamom most pronounced, followed by cinnamon.

This tea blend brews up to full flavor very quickly and I found it to be rather strong after a 2 minute steep.  A shorter 1.5 minute steep produced a nicely balanced flavors and aroma, making for a pleasant tasting session.

This tea was purchased by me.
