Day 10 of 52 teas 12 days of Christmas.
First of all, I am really surprised there are not more reviews on this one.
This one is quite well done. It smells similar to other 52 teas chai blends. But after brewing it smells like a delicious gingerbread cookie. No jokes here. The chai spices mix with the popcorn flavours and you get a delicious cake like drink. There is a slightly salty, seaweedy green tea base, but it is also sweet, not overpowering, and works really well with the chai spices. I would describe this as a very “light” genmaicha. I think anyone interested in trying genmaicha should try this one. It’s definitely a winner.
On a side note, I hope that there is lemon merengue chai in the last of these 12 days of Christmas. Fingers crossed.
