The turmeric trend continues to find its way into my Sips by box.

I love the way this tea smells. Turmeric and cinnamon take the lead in the aroma. I see a very large amount of cinnamon chips and ginger root, but also some unusually big cardamom pods that have been sliced in a + shape. I guess that’s to help release the flavor.

Since I only had 4 teaspoons of this tea, I didn’t add milk. I use a 24-ounce tumbler, and I was afraid that it wouldn’t be strong enough. I was right, I believe. The flavor is just fine without the milk. Turmeric takes the lead, with ginger and cinnamon next. I really like the cinnamon they used. Reminds me of a snickerdoodle. However, I think I just don’t love turmeric. I find it kind of medicinal and off-putting. Like ginger’s ugly cousin. It leaves me wishing this was a regular chai, because if it was, it would be perfect.

EDIT: This turned the inside of my tumbler a gross shade of yellow. I hope it washes out easily…

I’m not a fan of turmeric in tea, either. It’s a bit too earthy or something.

After 10 years on Steepster, I have given up. The lack of maintenance, updates, and mobile compatibility have finally discouraged me. I still use my Cupboard and add teas to the database, but I won’t be logging teas anymore.
