Sipdown! (18 | 295)
Slowly (very slowly…) getting through these Vahdam advent leftovers. I think this is the last masala chai other than a couple of turmeric tisanes, so that’s nice. I’m admittedly not much of a masala chai person, so I’m glad to have sipped most of them down.
Anyway, this one is more appealing to me than most because first of all, it’s a green base, and second of all, it has a couple of more unusual ingredients – almonds and saffron. I don’t really taste almond though, admittedly. Mostly it’s a very soft (almost bland) green tea with a strong cardamom flavor, accented by cinnamon and with a touch of saffron coming out at the end of the sip.
I think I would have enjoyed it more if the green tea were a bit more vegetal or buttery or something. I mostly just taste minerality and a hint of smoke from it. But the saffron is fun at least!
