Leaf Type: Chai (Black Tea)
Where to Buy: Balcony Tea
This is what my papa called “a signature tea”: refreshing in summer and protective in winter. We love the distinctly herbaceous, yet sweet and comforting taste of this black tea.
Black Tea – The finest Ceylon tea. Fortifying, yet refreshing.Wild Thyme – Our thyme is wild-harvested in the Mediterranean to ensure its intense aroma and taste. The Romans believed Thyme to be a mood enhancer. My family used to drink it whenever we were feeling under the weather.Vanilla Pieces & Flavour – Smooth, sweet and luxurious.

Thyme Chai From Balcony Tea is unlike anything I have had before and that is a GOOD thing! It does take a while for the tea water to fully infuse to a dark brown that you would expect from a black based tea but it’s worth the wait. I actually went the full 5 minutes. The loose leaf mixture is gently placed in a silk sachet so I wasn’t able to do my usual double dosage at half the time for a stronger black tea. I wanted to try is straight up as Balcony Teas attended first. It was a success!
I was trying to figure out how Thyme Chai From Balcony Tea was supposed to TASTE like a chai when all it had in it was Black Tea, Wild Thyme, and Vanilla. I don’t know how they did it but they did! It was very Chai-esque! That Wild Thyme must be some potent stuff! The vanilla gives it a hint of smooth on the end sip, too! The Black Tea base was impressively strong for something in a sachet!
Thyme Chai From Balcony Tea was pleasing to each of my senses! The ingredients used were of good quality. I enjoy the labeling and stories that go along with these teas, too! Well done!
