Oh Bengal Spice, where have you been all my life? There was a time when my cupboards were fully stocked to almost overflowing with Celestial Seasoning teas. Then I tired of all the fruit flavors that started to merge together…and ventured off in search of new tastes. Over the past couple of years though, the company has really changed and grown…they seem more sophisticated. Worldly even.
Moops loves Bengal Spice, and while I brew her up a cup of the caffeine-free tea, I usually make myself a cup of traditional chai. I always marveled at how similar the two teas smelled, but that’s as far as I went.
I’m really tired tonight; like deep down bone tired. And I’m also chilled since the warm nights have disappeared in favor of the damp rain making me think summer will never come. I decided I don’t need any more caffeine tonight so what the heck, I’ll try a cup of Bengal Spice.
One word: WOW. OK, I can’t stop at one word. I’m so surprised by how much this tastes like chai without the caffeine! I know it’s all in those signature chai spices BUT this herbal tea holds milk. The color after steeping is rich and dark. I am in spicy tea bliss right now.
