Well, read on my Tea friends, read on..... The Bombay Chai came far from forever sitting on the Bottom Shelf, or being deemed the Tea I serve to Guests who come unannounced.... *teehee* The Bombay Chai took me and my taste buds off guard ..... stand back, get your own Tea, this ones mine!
My mother lied.... sharing is over rated!
Tea Company: The Boston Tea Company
Tea Name: Bombay Chai
* You'll do the cha-cha over our chai tea! Ever so popular, worldwide, chai is a centuries' old tradition of Indian culture. Boast to your friends about Boston Tea aromatic, cheery blend of black tea with sweet fragrant spices. Simply add a pinch of sugar to bring out its rich flavorful spices of cardamom, cinnamon, ginger, cloves and anise seed. Top with a generous splash of milk and sensually savor each sip!
Tea Type: Black
Tea Tasting Location: Auntie Doris & Uncle Dave's Kitchen Table.
Tea Accompaniments: The Clover Honey Spoon from The Boston Tea Company. An overall suggestion from the Family was that with the smell being so Spicy an accompaniment of Honey would be a match made in heaven. And so we did.......
5 for the best and 1 for the worst
Andrea (my cousin): 4
Jennyfer (my sister-in-law): 4

Doris (my aunt): 3.5
Carmen Jayne (my cousin): 4.5
Nana Carmen (i think its self explanatory): 4.5
Christopher (my cousin): 4.5
Justin (my cousin's husband): 4.5
Liquor Color: Ginger, Maple Syrup (yes, we are Canadian eh'), Dark Honey, Amber
Aroma: Spicy Cinnamon, Ginger, Soft Mint and Clove
Taste: Smooth yet Soft Vanilla, Clove, Malty Black Tea, Reminds Jennyfer of a Tea they would serve at a Spa and Dustin says considering he doesn't drink Tea and has no desire to start, he would actually go out and buy this Tea.
Comments: I took a leap of faith - okay I lied, I waited to try this Tea with others so that If I had a bad review, it may be out weighted by others who loved it. Good Idea Right??!!??
I tried it....and tried it again... oh yeah and since then Ive "tried" it another 2 times. Seriously I am so pleased that I love it so. With how terrified I was after first sniff, I am proud to say I am the new spokes person for "get over yourself...and try it" and here to say that Bombay Chai Tea is one of my new favorites. Those who come over unannounced will still only have 1 choice of beverage and that is Water. This Fabulous Tea is not what I had expected at all. Its Smooth, Rich and Sweet Taste make my taste buds scream for more.
Thank you Boston Tea Company, for making such amazing Tea's - and for sending me something that I would never have purchased on my own...I have a new obsession thanks to you!
and she steeps, letting out more of her Spicy Aroma....which still leaves me in nervous stare
Summer trying to get in on the fun....
Nana Carmen yelling her rating "Mmmmm 4.5"
