8 Tasting Notes
Very spicy, especially clove. Lots of big pieces of whole spices.
It’s tiny crumbs of tea. The smallest ones fall through my filter. As you’d expect, the water darkens really fast, and the taste isn’t great. It might be OK in bags for everyday use but it’s too frustrating in this form.
I had to force myself to finish the sample, and normally I’m pretty easy to please. It just tasted wrong (not helpful, I know, but I can’t really say why—mint and coconut are both OK with me). It reinforces my policy of not buying teas with artificial flavors.
If, like me, you’re frustrated by ginger teas that aren’t strong enough, and you think the burning feeling is a positive thing, then you’ll love this. It does have a lot of sugar, as it’s basically flavored sugar crystals. Feels good on a sore throat. I’ve found that the Traditional Medicinals Ginger and Ginger Aid teas both have comparable strength without the sugar.
Really good. My boyfriend doesn’t like green tea very much but likes this one. The flavor is definitely matcha. It gives very short steeping directions but doesn’t seem to get bitter if oversteeped.
I had it first at a Japanese restaurant in the summer (iced, of course). Now I make sun tea with this Korean one. It is kind of odd (tastes like grain and oddly a little like coffee) but light and refreshing when cold.
Totally different spice blend than their Holiday Chai. Has a bit of citrus sourness.
Brewed like normal black tea with milk added afterward. Unlike other chai I’ve tried, the anise stood out the most in this one.
