So folks, last month we gave a lucky 10 of you the chance to try our truly luxurious Organic Indian Chai Tea. All we asked in return was that they shared their exper-teas and send us a short review. Once again, we’ve had a great response and received some lovely reviews. Have a look below at our favourites:
‘When I opened Clipper Organic Indian Chai Tea, my first thought was “Wow! Cloves!” I feared the pungent scent warned of a tea with a medicinal flavour. However, fresh boiling water softened the aroma, resulting in a fragrant liquid with a rich, brown colour. On tasting, the undeniably warming flavour of cloves was followed by the subtlest undertone of cinnamon and a lightly spiced aftertaste free from bitterness. A versatile tea, I have since enjoyed it with milk and with fresh lemon but my preference is simply to add a little sugar, which I believe enhances the flavours. While I wonder how the balance of flavours may be affected by a touch more cinnamon and fewer cloves, I have warmed to this aromatic tea; I may not drink it every day but I suspect I will be drawn to its seasonably spicy ways again over the chilly winter days!’ – Ali
‘The Organic Clipper Indian chai is a beautiful, milky, soul warming tea which is rich, with a full-bodied flavour and has a faultless blend of traditional Indian inspired spices. It is a perfect pick-me-up tea for those cold English winters. As a black tea, it was incredibly light and refreshing and had an authentic spicy aroma which rejuvenated the senses. The cinnamon and cloves worked beautifully together and gave the blend its unique spicy flavour’ – Manisha
‘The Organic Indian Chai has an acquired taste – but it doesn’t taste long to acquire the taste. The initial mouthful tastes quite perfumed, with a strong clove overtone. If you are expecting this to taste like a regular tea you will be surprised by the spicy nature of this tea – but please give it a chance. This tea is like Christmas, the spices, the warmth of a roaring open fire. If you have over indulged over the Festive Season you will find this tea is an excellent digestive – if you have indigestion it really seems to help! Also, if you decide to cut down on your calorie intake it seems to help as an appetite suppressant. I love this chai! Thanks Clipper’ – Joanne
