Another from the “Game of Tea” fandom sampler. This time, it’s a blend of Green Chai, Vanilla Green, and Gunpowder.
In taste terms, it’s fairly mild – a lot milder than I was expecting, given the name. The green base is lightly grassy but not overpoweringly so. The vanilla adds a soft creamy sweetness, which is nice but a little out of place here. I don’t think soft, sweet and creamy aren’t adjectives that come to mind when I think of dragons. The chai is more muted than I expected, too. There’s a bit of background spiciness/heat, but nowhere near enough considering it’s a dragon blend. I can only assume Rhaegal’s fire has gone out.
Seriously, though, this one’s pleasant enough and easy to drink, but it’s nothing outstanding. I wouldn’t say it captures the spirit of the name particularly well, which is always a disappointment when it comes to fandom blends. Half the attraction is the connection, after all.
