I can’t really say I’m a fan of the original Oprah Chai Tea, but I was curious to see how this one differed.
I started sipping this one before it really had a chance to steep—about a minute, maybe 2—and was pleasantly surprised. The lemongrass and ginger were really noticeable, with the cinnamon not too overpowering. Slight hint of anise, which I’m never fond of, but no big deal. It was actually refreshing. Sadly, because I usually brew herbals for about 6 minutes, I left the bag in and after maybe 4 minutes the cinnamon just overpowered the whole cup and ruined it for me. Dumped the rest out.
Flavors: Anise, Cinnamon, Ginger, Lemongrass
