When I heard that +Rachana Rachel Carter of +iHeartTeas had developed an apple pie flavored chai I knew that I just had to give it a try. Her teas are always unique and artfully blended. This one was more chai and spice than fruit but that’s just the way I like it. There was just a touch of appley sweetness and a slight creaminess in the background from the vanilla flavor. Talk about a comforting sip! The best way that I can describe it is the spicy, sweet aftertaste that you get after eating a bite of pie. It’s definitely strong enough to stand up to milk and sugar but I also found it enjoyable all on its own. A small bit of whipped cream on top turns it into a decadent treat. I’ll definitely need to try this as a latte using the stove-top method. This will be a perfect tea to share with my family after Thanksgiving dinner.
