Ahhhhh! A Black Tea/Honeybush Blend from 52 Teas? HECK YEAH – I’m excited!
I’m excited for Winter Cabin Chai from 52 Tea for many reasons…one…because I was getting low on spicy black teas…two…because it’s a blended black tea and honeybush base…three…it’s a flavored chai…and four…it contains marshmallow root! The marshmallow root is GLORIOUS! It’s a natural, vegan ingredient that gives it the delicious marshmallow aroma and taste without the gelatin based junk food that you buy in stores!
It’s spicy because of the traditional chai-like spices but it also has a sweetness to it, too! The vanilla provides a creamy-smooth end note and walks hand-in-hand with the spices for the perfect yin and yang.
This was so nicely done and so impressive that I was able to get 2 solid infusions out of it. The spices are strong and the vanilla and marshmallow are sweet and smooth. The honeybush helps sweeten it too. The black tea is a medium strength black tea and it’s tasty!
I’m liking everything about this flavored chai! The only thing I won’t like is when my stash is gone.
Here’s the scoop!
Leaf Type: Black Tea
Where to Buy: 52Teas
I’m not exactly sure how to explain my inspiration behind this tea except to say that I wanted to create something that evoked thoughts of a little cabin out in the woods during a winter snowstorm. Inside the cabin, it’s warm and toasty, there’s a fire cracking in the fireplace and you’re – yes you! Not me, I’d prefer no snowstorm please. Since I’m the one writing the story, you’ll be the character in the story, m-kay? You’re curled up in front of the fireplace, wrapped in a warm, fuzzy blanket and you’re roasting marshmallows. I wanted a chai that captured that story.
I wanted something warm and spicy but also sweet and toasty. Something that hints of slightly charred marshmallows while still letting you know that it’s a chai you’re sipping. I wanted the spices to be in the forefront but not so aggressive that the delightful roasted marshmallow flavor is overpowered.
And I think I’ve accomplished what I set out to do – try it yourself and see if you agree!
