I was apprehensive when I opened the package because the aroma that hit smelt like a scented candle shop or a christmas pudding when someone has overkilled the cinammon. My wife on the other hand loves the smell saying in reminds her of the chai she once had in Sri Lanka.
I personally found the taste acceptable, but not as clean as the other teas I have bought from Adagio – the ginger, cinammon and ‘chai flavouring’ aftertaste was a little overpowering for me. Slightly astringent on back of my tongue, too.
So basically, just a bit too ‘busy’ for me. My wife loved it, but she doesn’t get a vote!
