Let’s take a look at Day 2 of the Advent Calendar! It’s…
Organic Vanilla Chai!
Ingredients: Organic: Cinnamon, black tea, licorice root, ginger, vanilla. With natural vanilla and cream flavouring.
It smells so good when it starts steeping! The cinnamon really comes out at first with a hint of the licorice root, which creates a lovely spicey, warm scent. DAVIDsTEA also lists this as having medium levels of caffeine.
I’m actually not too fond of the vanilla and cream flavour being paired up with a spiced black tea. I know it’s supposed to help balance out the flavours, especially with the astringency, but I find that it doesn’t really contribute anything significant to the overall profile.
Of course, I’m a bit of a purist when it comes to tea. I hardly ever add anything like milk, lemon or sugar, so that may be why it’s a slight miss for me!
Otherwise, the tea is really fantastic for warming up on a cold day. It’s not snowing like yesterday, but it’s still pretty damn cold and this organic vanilla chai is helping me stay warm and cozy at work!
Could this be a double posting day? Possibly…
