This tea was such a wonderful surprise. I really enjoy Pu Erh teas and have loved the spice of chai teas as well. I bought this on a whim because they combined two of my favorite things. This has now become my favorite tea to have. I love how the Pu Erh softens the spice of the chai with it's earthiness. For me, chai teas can become bitter over time and I have not had this occur at all with this tea.
