I believe this is the same tea a the sample I was sent titled “bengal green spice”. The picture looks the same as what is in the tin, and the steeping instructions are the same, so I believe they are the same. If not, I will create a new listing. I couldn’t find Bengal Green Chai on Adagio’s website, but a search for it resulted in me finding this tea.

I was a bit put off by the cinnamon flavoring in this tea. It tastes more like cinnamon red hots than like fresh or ground cinnamon. I personally don’t like cinnamon red hots in my tea, but can see others liking this. This is a milder version of Harney and Sons Hot Cinnamon Spice Green Tea. I will finish my sample of it, but it won’t be a re-order for me. I really wanted to like this tea, as I love Adagio’s Oriental Spice, and was hoping for similar notes in this with a green base.

Same tea- no clue why they changed the name… although I think you’re confusing “bengal green chai” and “green spice”… 2 different teas that taste exactly the same just like their masala chai and oriental spice- don’t ask me why they have virtual duplicates.

Ah, that’s it, it’s the Spiced Green I wanted to try. Maybe I’ll have to pick up a sample of that to see if the cinnamon is more toned down. I haven’t tried their Masala Chai, but like their Oriental Spice, so maybe I’ll like green spice better? Who knows. Thanks for the clarification Cofftea!

Live in the cornfields of IL, but not too far from the city. Expecting a baby any day now (due Oct 24 2011). Sticking to mainly herbal and low caffeine teas for now. Trying to encourage my husbands tea drinking, but he adds so much sweetner he may as well just drink diet pop. I love trying new teas, and will try any tea once.
