This is a tasty chai, but I can’t taste the rose.
Which totally stresses me out, guys.
I want to be like “the rose notes are a pink rose, first bloom of spring, a tender, easy rose, like the kind you buy for a fresh love.”
Or perhaps “this rose is a sultry red, the color of midnight kisses and lipstick on the collar. It’s the last wisp of your lover’s perfume on your clothes as you drive away into the shuddering rain, alone.”
But I can’t taste that.
I’m getting a lot of spices. Which is totally what a chai should be — a violent slam to the face of cinnamon and its squad. So crazy-spiced that you’ve gotta cut it with vanilla almond milk to handle it.
A rugged, full-throttle, roadrunner-speed lightning-streak from your tongue to your stomach. Boom.
Your eyes widen a little wider and you realize that you had been tired all day — and now you’re awake.
Here’s the scoop!
