Teajo Rooibos Chai

I was excited to try this selection because I thought rooibos and chai was a unique combination. Teajo lists the ingredients as including African rooibos with cinnamon, ginger and other natural spices. I brewed this tea using my Zarafina tea maker set on strong, herbal. The liquor was a deep red and the spicy scent was very apparent, both in the tea and the dry leaves.

I have to say that this is the first selection from Teajo that I have thoroughly enjoyed. It was a tasty and spicy with just a hint of the woodsy flavor of rooibos. It was definitely chai but in an understated way that wasn’t overwhelming to the palate. I only wish I had enough to make this tea more than once. It would have gone very well with some steamed milk. I would definitely recommend this tea.
