6 Tasting Notes
Lemony fresh and uplifting with a ginger finish makes for a refreshing cup of tea. While the taste was great, I felt it was lacking substance. Generally I tend to blend herbal teas with other types of teas, as herbal teas always seem to be lacking something. As such I have paired this with a chai and blended them together, and they seem to cover each others weaknesses beautifully.
Flavors: Ginger, Lemon
A decent green tea. I detected notes of banana, similar to a hefeweissen beer, nuts, and artichoke. This tea was much sweeter than I had anticipated, and while not overwhelmingly sweet, it made the tea slightly less pleasant. A well rounded flavor profile, and a good afternoon relaxing tea. There’s nothing too outstanding to make me go out of my way to seek this tea out.
Flavors: Artichoke, banana, Nuts
This chai is a little weaker for the first half of the cup, but then becomes stronger towards the end. Normally I am a fan of this sort of heterogeneity, but the initial taste is fairly weak, and even near the bottom of the cup, it is still weaker than most other chais. I would recommend using more than the recommended amount/per unit water. The recommended steeping directions create a less than satisfying tea experience. The tea itself is fine, no bitterness, and hints of citrus and orange mixed with faint spices would be a pleasant combination if presented in proper amounts. Milk isn’t necessary, and it may actually harm the flavor of this chai by covering up many of the already subtle flavors.
Flavors: Anise, Citrus Zest, Clove, Ginger, Orange
Delicious tea tea that will leave you craving more. Buttery, nutty finish that lingers for a while after sipping. Light, but leaves one satisfied with a savory taste. Fantastic aroma and color. Steeps well but tends to leave a fine residue at the bottom of the cup when using a metal filter. This tea is everything I could ever want in a green tea, and more!
