Moving through all the samples I picked up from my aunt’s during Thanksgiving. I generally take one of each of her bagged teas I haven’t yet tried. Bagged teas are good lull teas; lately I’ve been feeling too lazy to assume the student role with quality loose leaf. Looking forward to the moment I come to my senses and plunge into the puerh crocks. With time.
Big news (rolls eyes): this is pretty much indistinguishable from any other Yogi brand chai-type bag. It’s pretty fresh and warming, though. Turmeric forward for sure but I can surprisingly taste everything else like ginger, cardamom, cinnamon, black pepper and clove. The initial sips have that weird licorice sweetness, definitely not overplayed. It assimilates seamlessly a few more sips in and contributes a decent body.
But again, with Yogi teas, I usually find at least one part of the name to be missing. This time it’s honey. It ghosted. Come on.
Overall fine, nothing special but can’t recommend it because well, in my opinion, once you’ve had one Yogi, you’ve had them all.
