I didn’t care for this tea. It smells good when you open the tin & during brewing. But for some reason the taste didn’t live up to the smell.
I got a big taste of black pepper & I don’t care for pepper.
Definitely not a winner for me.

“OK. This time I eased up on the steeping of this and the result is a little nicer tea. The aroma this tea has is a little ambiguous. it is still really spicy but I will give it another chance.” Read full tasting note
The Lemon Grass Chai is a top grade Indian tea. This delicious tea includes black tea, ginger, cardamom, coriander, cinnamon, black pepper, and lemon grass. When brewed this full body tea produces a spicy and cleansing lemon grass flavor. Superb with milk and sugar.

I love the color of this tea liquor. It is a gorgeous deep red that mellows to a spicy-orange with milk. The dominant flavors are the lemongrass and pepper. I did oversteep this a bit but the resulting mild bitterness was smoothed out when I added honey instead of my usual sugar.
I gave in the other morning and opted for a cup of this top grade Indian tea. As I opened the tin I was pleasantly surprised with the aromas, mostly the lemon-grass in the scent.
Prevailing notes: lemon grass, ginger, cinnamon, coriander and black pepper. This I came at after tasting the grinds left at bottom of the cup. The pepper does add quite a kick to the chai, I enjoyed this with sugar, no cream or soy, next time perhaps.
It is definitely a full bodied spice tea…true Hindi tea. I enjoyed drinking this throughout the day and found it remaining as steady when first sipped. And if there was caffeine there was no effect from the fullness in the body.
Got this little sampler when I ordered a tea pot. Smells delightfully spicy and warming on a cold winter night. Boy oh boy, was I in for a treat….
I did not taste any of the lemongrass…couldn’t pick up even a hint of it. The predominant tastes were heavily of black peppercorn and bitter chai. I added honey to try to cut some of the bitterness, but it didn’t help….so I added more….and nothing worked. Nothing helped pick this cup back up, and it got progressively worse the more that it cooled off. Definitely not my cup of tea
Got as a free sample with my Father’s Day gift teapot.
Upon opening the bag you are instantly smacked with a lemon citrus aroma wafting in your face; it’s pleasant. The brew is a glowing red as the lemon scent continues to fill the room. The taste, though not living up to the expectation built up based on the smell, is also pleasant; though the typical chai flavours are subtle. So subtle in fact it’s like pulling teeth to get the to reveal themselves, but they’re there.
Now I rarely do this, but after half a cup of unimpressive tea I opted to add milk and sugar; true chai fashion. Night and day difference. The lemongrass flavours burst forth and the chai spices jump out at you! I enjoyed this tea so much more with this addition.
The missus isn’t a fan of tea, but she did enjoy the smell of this one!
