Tea type: oolong tea
How to prepare it: 3 to 5 minutes, 85-95 °C (185-200 °F)
At the beginning, immediately cardamom and black pepper over all; strong and spicy. Then huge notes of cloves start to arise mixed up with a not so well definied background sweetness. At the end there is also a light citrus night, giving freshness to such a spicy blend.
Extremely consistent to the dry one, with
strong notes of cardamom and cloves. Then a "shy", sweet, woody note is showed up, revealing the oolong tea which was covered at the beginning by all the others flavours.
Really a light chai tea, but in a positive way. Its spiceness isn't exagerated as in many others chai tea: here all the flavours give sustain to the tea, rather then to covered it (differently from the dry scent). Of course the main flavours are still cardamom and cloves, but that isn't all the
story. There is also a woody sweetness given by the tea and a freshness one given by the orange peel. At the end a slight aroma of cinnamon.
This isn't the usual chai tea that we are used to drink normally: I mean, it isn't so far away respect to a normal chai tea, but there is something more. It's spicy, yes, but there are also other flavours, rather then an exasperated spicing. Let me defined it as a gentle and refined version of a chai tea.
My score: 8.75/10
