I’m sure this is an offering from some other company, but I’m at a loss to figure out which. It’s definitely strong on the lemon and quite lovely, however there’s zero ginger in it – and I’ve had this three times now, all oversteeped in the hopes to pull some ginger out of it. Boo. It’s not a bad tea, it’s actually quite lovely… I just wanted ginger.
Definitely upping the rating on this, and already making plans to order more. Oversteeped it dramatically last night, and it’s amazing! Very juicy lime candy quality to it, with a bite of ginger in the finish. A real bite too, not just…. meh ginger. I will drink this often. It did leave quite a bit of residue in the cup though, likely from the powdered ginger.
Same name, same ingredients, with a tea that looks the same? I’m thinking this is what Acquired Taste in Edmonton, AB sells.
Pleasant, fruity and light – although something I’m drinking, I’m having an allergic reaction to. Very pineapple-y, depending on the sip, with little coconut, but it’s still in there vaguely.
The description calls this a chai – I’m not sure what to call it exactly, other than shockingly delicious. Barely can taste the base, then there’s vanilla, some creaminess from the cardamom, something nutty, and orange. I love this tea!
I think (?) this is what I’m reviewing? I have two chais here, and I forgot which was which. From the ingredient list, this looks like what I should be drinking… I need to look at my pictures… yep, this is the spicy chai.
I’m finding it really drying, and spicy, but more that it’s got a lot of spice in it than any sort of heat. Very thick, full bodied chai. Bitter as it cooled as well, which blows.
Don’t you hate it when you have one of your favorite teas, and it’s not as you remembered it? I thought this was a sipdown, then I received a lovely package from Janelle today, replenishing this slightly so that I have another cup or two left. Good! Because this is okay, but not great tonight. Boo.
