Artisan parfumeur Mandy Aftel has done it again. Her latest creation, the Organic Matcha Chai Tea, is an aromatic revelation. Grown in Nishio, Japan, the ceremonial-grade organic matcha is blended with Mandy's signature Aftelier Chef’s Essences.
Madagascan vanilla absolute, organic Vietnamese cinnamon, organic Jamaican pimento berry and organic Indian cardamom come together to create a clean, sweet and creamy finish. The round warm notes from the vanilla reminded me rose petals, which blew me away.
It's already wonderful by itself, but I love to make it latte style with a generous splash of milk and a spoonful of raw honey. It's such a luxurious way to celebrate autumn and the holiday seasons. Get some for yourself and your loved ones — tea connoisseurs will be obsessed with this new tea.
Available for $30 (25 grams) at www.aftelier.com.
