Starbucks, Chai with Peppermint Latte
The day after Thanksgiving was a great day to get out and do a little tea hunting. I had never gone tea tasting in the Fairlawn, Ohio area, so I spent the day hoping from one tea place to another.
My first stop was Starbucks. I ordered a chai with 2 pumps of peppermint.
I have discovered that when I get flavored drinks the syrup pumps are usually over powering. In this cup they were going to put 4 pumps of peppermint. I asked for half the pumps. I enjoyed it a lot. I was able to taste the chai notes and the peppermint notes. It was not over powered by peppermint also I did not want all that extra sugar from the syrup.
Remember it is your drink, get it the way you want it.
I gave this 4 tea cups. I thought the tea was good. The flavors meshed nicely. I just think they are a bit over priced.
