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…
