The first episode starts with one of my daily teas — Teavana’s Samurai Chai Maté.
Zoomdweebie’s Extra Bold Masala Chai is about as authentic as you can get without traveling to India yourself. They use RadioactiviTEA as the base (CTC Assam) along with traditional chai spices which have been grinded to release their flavor and oils.
The result is a STRONG cup of tea that will not only wake you up, but warm you up too! The maltiness of the Assam melds perfectly with these ground spices. Add a little bit of milk to cut down on bitterness and you’re in heaven.
The two teas from DAVIDsTEA I tried earlier were really something, so I’ve got high hopes for this Super Ginger blend. This is a mix of ginger root, black pepper, white pepper, pink peppercorns, and stevia for sweetness. Let’s give it a shot!
Whew…this is not “super” at all. I was expecting something nice and spicy, but this didn’t even give me a tingle! This is very weak in terms of flavor, although the ginger was nice and warming. This just did not deliver for me. Your mileage may vary.
