This is a bagged tea but not half bad for all that. And it’s rather convenient in the morning when I’m in a hurry and too sleepy to want to fuss with loose leaf tea. I’ve found that, even if the ingredients are similar, each masala chai is at least slightly different in taste. This one has a toasty flavour a bit reminiscent of an English breakfast tea and the cardamom is a particularly prominent spice. It’s a good tea to wake up with.
Jillian Thanks for a bit of this! It’s ok! It’s not too one way or the other for a green…by that I mean…not too sweet, not too grassy, not too vegetal, not to bitter, not to floral…you get the idea. It’s a nice middle of the road bagged green to fall back on if you may or if you must.
I purchased this tea through Ten Thousand Villages – an organization that supports fair trade products from groups of artisans all over the world (http://www.tenthousandvillages.com/). This tea bags came packed in this cute little embroidered green silk purse which I just love.
The flavour is surprisingly light and pleasant for a bagged green tea. It’s a combination of vegetal notes and fruity muscatel notes like you might get from a nice Darjeeling. The lemon isn’t too overpowering and it compliments the tea very nicely.
