The first time I was exposed to masala tea was in Singapore a few years back when I ordered a Himalayan tea latte from McCafe to start off my day of shopping. My original idea was to order something I haven’t tried before and couldn’t find in Hong Kong. The second I took a sip of the hot beverage, I was instantly in love of the exotic taste and flavor. I think the best way to describe the taste is that it is similar to chai tea latte from Starbucks, though I find the Himalayan tea to be more exotically flavored and the taste is not so one-spiced dimensional. Haha, does that make sense? However, I need to point out McCafe uses powder to mix the drink, and I don’t like to consume creamers, so I never bother buying the three-in-one with all the creamer, sugar, and stuff I don’t believe in.
Over the weekend, I found masala loose leaf at Mustafa Center, which I’ll described as a crazy mad house of millions of goods chaotically placed on shelves after shelves, floors after floors, it really is a crazy mad house in Little India. Anyway, I finally decided to create my own “Himalayan tea latte” and I need to praise myself and give myself a pat on the back, because yes! It was that good!!!
OMG, there is absolutely no turning back and I have upgraded away from McCafe powdered Himalayan tea, muhaha.
