drank Green Chai by Indigo Tea Company
83 tasting notes

I just picked up this tea while spending another day at the office. By office, I mean at Indigo Tea company. If you live in Minnesota, this is a great tea shop for the south metro. It is a wonderful place to study because they don’t have wifi (which means you won’t waste time surfing the internet and obsessively checking your e-mail!)

Anyway, as far as this tea goes, I was excited to try a green tea that also purports chai flavor. What an interesting combination…this tea is. I’m not well versed in different types of green tea, but I know the difference between Gyrokuro and Dragonwell because they’re the only two types I normally drink. I would say this tea’s leaves are more similar to Dragonwell green tea. However, I’m having more difficulty identifying the predominant spice in this tea. It could be clove, and it is definitely is not cinnamon, or nutmeg. I’ll have to ask some of my friends that cook much more often to me to identify the spice in this. Despite my lack of knowledge, I like the spice in this tea with the green tea flavor. I would prefer it in the fall, but I’m enjoying it tonight anyway :)

I originally bought this tea for a friend and I tried a cup of it just to make sure it was worth giving to her. She ended up really liking it and consumes an entire teapot full of it over lengthy study sessions. She told me that the flavor is strong in cardamom, and that she found it to be slightly sweet.

Bio

I’ve been drinking loose leaf teas for about 4 years and really enjoy the sense of contentment it brings to my busy life. I suppose tea is an experience you inherently have to slow down and enjoy, as it quiets the mind and allows you to hear more readily. I am also interested in Buddhism, yoga, meditation, and psychotherapy.

Here are some of my favorite teas:

Organic Silver Needle White Tea (Teavivre)
Bailin Gongfu Black Tea (Teavivre)
Buttered Rum (DavidsTea)
Gyrokuro/Gyrokuro Genmaicha (Teavana)
Apple Green Tea (Indigo Tea Company)
Strawberry Festival (Indigo Tea Company)
Mom’s Apple Pie (David’s Tea)
Jasmine Dragon Phoenix Pearls/Rooibos Tropica Blend (Teavana)
