This tea is really unique. It definitely intrigued me from the moment I found it in the package from TeaTiff today. Hot hot hot it definitely tasted like carrot, sweet and earthy and fresh, with just a touch of the mineral beet sweetness to it. As it cooled off, I got more of the orange notes. I like it. I like it quite a bit. Very different, very unique.
Flavored teas are generally not my favorite—RoT’s mango Ceylon is good iced, and I like a good Earl Grey every now and again, but I generally prefer the taste of plain tea. This is not something I would buy, but it was given as a gift. It’s not bad for a flavored tea—the ginger is rather strong, but doesn’t entirely overpower the tea (just mostly). With milk and sugar it’s nice, especially on an upset stomach, but I wouldn’t drink this regularly—in fact, I think it may be hanging around the cupboard for quite a while. Also, it doesn’t strike me as a real breakfast tea, but rather an afternoon tea.
I’ve been sort of up/down on my luck with Republic of Tea. This one is better than some of the others so I’m glad. I taste the orange, ginger, mint and anise. It seems to have a lingering ginger/anise aftertaste. It is quite pleasant.
Made this as a cold brew. 3 teabags and 500ml water. I put it in for about 9 hours. I really have no idea how long I should cold brew things. Any suggested guidelines?
Flavors: Anise, Ginger, Orange
Continuing my quest for the perfect chai.
This isn’t it. It starts out nice enough, smooth – maybe just a little heavy on the cinnamon, but them WHAM the ginger/pepper (OMG spicy) slams into the back of your throat.
For my taste the spices aren’t balanced properly.
Oh well – the quest continues….
