This tea was one of my teas of the month for May (at least I think it was for May). First off there is a WHOLE lot of ginger in this cup! I didn’t think their would be so fool that I am stuck my nose right in the bag and we’ll just say my sinus troubles might be over for the season. There is more to this tea like cinnamon, fennel, basil, etc, but sadly the ginger is all I am smelling at the moment.

The taste is heavy on the ginger too. It isn’t bad, but it isn’t what I expect from a chai either. I don’t say this very often about a tea from Verdant…but I am not in love with this one. I’ll give it another go tomorrow and see if I’m somehow missing everything else.

This sounds like a really great Chai, with a Yunnan, and I like ginger too.

The Purrfect Cup

The jury (me) is still out. Maybe I need to add milk and honey as they suggest on their website next time. It isn’t horrible, just not what I am used to with other Chai’s I’ve tried.

ScottTeaMan

The best Chai I’ve had so far is from Rishi.

The Purrfect Cup

I’ll have to give them a shot. What’s the name of the Chai?

ScottTeaMan

I sampled mine in a swap, but I do plan on ordering more, by Fall for sure.

The Purrfect Cup

I’ll keep that in mind. The chai with vanilla looks good to me too.

ScottTeaMan

Yeah, and the Rooibos Chai too.

TeaBrat

I like both the Chais from Rishi (the caffeine and the West Cape). Just for the record I thought the Laoshan Chai from Verdant was pukey but everyone else seems to love it – go figure

ScottTeaMan

@Amy, maybe you just didn’t like the mix with Yunnan?

TeaBrat

I haven’t tried the Yunnan Chai, I had the Laoshan Chai :P

ScottTeaMan

Ok…Um…..my bad. :))

If anyone wants to try the Ohio Thunder Chai let me know….when its gone it may be gone for good and its pretty yums

The Purrfect Cup

I would, sounds great!

send me a message with an address and I will send you a taste…Ceylon Kenilworth OP, organic Assam Banathspathy FOP, organic green cardamom, cinnamon chips, whole clove, organic shreaded/dried ginger, decordicated cardamom, organic whole black peppercorns….the cup is warming, fruity, gently spicy and the large tea leaves make it very difficult to overextract allowing for the spices to have enough steep time to be expressed

The Purrfect Cup

That is super awesome of you!

Bonnie

This was quite good with honey!

Bio

I am a tea lover, a wife, and mother of three cats (all rescues). I love to read, and to write. I’m also a BIG fan of the BBC’s Sherlock as well as Doctor Who.

I started drinking and enjoying tea (sure it was bagged Lipton, but it got me started) when my grandmother first introduced me to tea with milk and sugar (and peanut butter and jelly on toast) and my love just grew from there.

I was brought to loose leaf through a trip to Teavana aka my gateway to loose tea. But my taste has expanded along with my love of tea. Sometimes I right about tea on my blog – Gal In The Grey Hat.
