Autumn is setting in and that means temperatures have dropped and the mornings are dark when I get up and the evenings close in earlier and earlier.
My favourite time of year!
I love autumn. I love wrapping up warm and staying in to read and drink tea. I love the cold, crisp mornings and the frosts that show winter is coming.
So this week I opened up my box of 12 Teapig mini packets from my last order. I got quite few ones I haven’t tried, but it just hasn’t felt right to drink them through the summer.
But now autumn is here out comes the warming teas like the Chai!
“Every vendor, in every city, in every region of India, offers their own version of Chai Masala, the aromatic, spiced, milky tea that has been the Indian drink of choice for hundreds of years. Here’s our version: a rich, malty Assam tea blended with cardamom pods, cinnamon, ginger and cassia. A satisfying, healthy drink that captures the vibrancy and colour of India in a cup.”
This was really nice on my return from work. I felt tired and needed something to warm me up and give me a boost. It looks quite pale in the photo below, but I brewed it quite strong and just added milk.
Overall a very enjoyable cup of tea. I will be ordering this in my next batch to see me through the winter. Along with the caffeine free Spiced Winter Tea I got last year 🙂
