Sipdown and thank you dreamloomer!

After 6 hours of lectures sitting in front of screen, with 30 minutes lunch break, indeed Hello, Sofa!

I decided to steep longer than previous time; though last time it was very hot and spicy and I wasn’t that impressed. Though it says it contains matcha, I again went for boiling water.

Quite paradoxically, it was mellower than last time and now I can agree with “An easy going all-organic Spicy Chai with Matcha” on their bag. I am not really able to distinguish spices, but I think I noticed pepper and cinnamon, unfortunately much less orange zest than last time.

I find this tea interesting, but not looking trying again. Maybe less ginger/pepper notes and it would be more interesting… is base bit missing? I keep 70/100, as I am not that much impressed of this tea. But I am glad I could try it.

Very curious person over!

Wow, what an interesting idea for a tea. Also, it’s funny they call it “herbal tea” when it has matcha, ha ha! That could be a fun surprise for someone expecting no caffeine. :P

Leafhopper

Agreed. Calling it an herbal is a bit misleading. I wonder how many people decided to drink this as a relaxing cup before bed. :D

Martin Bednář

It contains only 2 per cent of Matcha. So it is 0,036g of Matcha in each tea bag. How much caffeine can it contain? Almost nothing in my opinion.

Leafhopper

Okay, that makes a bit more sense and probably wouldn’t keep anyone up. Still, saying it’s an herbal is strange.

Very strong aroma of cinnamon, black pepper, cardamom and gloves right after getting the eta bag out of the wrapper.
Also very strong after steeping, very spicy, but with no trace of matcha (obviously, since it’s only 2% of the package). The whole aroma profile reminds me of roasted apples with spices. Very warming, very winter-y.
The taste is also fruity, but not with apple, rather with the orange peels. Plus obviously all the spice extravaganza along with the spicy bite from black pepper.

To sum up: very tasty warming tea made with fresh, aromatic ingredients. I wish it had ore proper tea, but it’s still great.

With my first brewing I wanted to drink it neat. Next time I’ll try to brew it in the proper chai way.

Edit: I brewed it in the proper chai way, sweet and with milk (rice milk; iI’m not vegan, but recently I somehow don’t like dairy in my teas and coffees).
And it’s delicious! Smoth, sweet, full-bodied, rich, with solid peppery spiciness and the rest of the spices. A perfect winter warmer.
