Green Tea Chai, Organic Fair Trade Chai

Coming Soon! Available September 2010!

Green Tea Chai is very uplifting and assertive with a one-of-a-kind, bright green infusion color. This harmonious blend combines pan-fired green tea with ginger, zesty lemongrass and other stimulating botanicals for a well balanced break with tradition. Its spicy undertones and sweet citrus finish provide a delectable diversion from your usual chai.

Mix 2 tbsp chai, 1 cup water, and 1 cup milk in a saucepan. / Bring to a boil then reduce the heat and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in 3 tbsp sugar. / Strain into a mug or pitcher and enjoy! Chai can also be enjoyed over ice. / Ingredients: Organic cardamom, organic Fair Trade Certified™ green tea, organic lemongrass, organic ginger, organic licorice root, organic black pepper and organic peppermint. Origin: Rishi blend.

This is quite good. A nice lemony surprise! Mostly green tea, lemon, and a little bit of peppery taste. Only a little bit tho because I am not sure if it’s more of an actual pepper taste or a ginger taste that is causing the pepperiness.

A green tea chai! I have only ever tried one or two of these in the past, so this should be a novel experience. To begin, I was surprised at the directions. It said to boil together milk and water. While I have certainly made chai this way in the past, it has been a while, so this was pretty unique. After boiling the milk and water, I added the tea, turned down the burner on the stove, and let it simmer for four minutes. Pouring this whole mixture of leaf and herbs and liquid from a saucepan into a teapot (for holding) was an interesting endeavor. My tea now safely in a teapot, I poured myself a cup (straining out the leaves) and added a single sugar cube.

The packaging for the tea had instructed to sweeten as desired, and one sugar cube was enough (for me, at least) to sweeten the individual cup of chai.

This chai smells spicy! According to the packaging, there are a lot of spices in it, but the flavor still shocked me a bit. The second shock was the lemon aftertaste. This was not at all unpleasant, merely just different. I think that one description I read of this tea stated that the lemongrass in it was “zesty.” I wholeheartedly agree with this choice of words. If this tea is not enough to open your eyes wide, then there is a good chance that your taste buds are broken.

If you like chai, then you need to try this tea. The green tea gives it an amazingly smooth flavor, and the herbal additions combine to create a unique and “zesty” drink. On my personal enjoyment scale, I would rate this tea a 93/100.

Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me some of this tea to try!

This is really good. I am finding it less like a chai and a little more like a citrus ginger green tea, but, that is not to say it isn’t delicious because I’m loving it. I didn’t brew it according to suggested parameters (stovetop with a milk/water combination), I brewed it the way I normally would brew a green tea, and I love the results. I didn’t add milk to make a latte, either, I generally do not like milk with lemongrass blends. But, I think this might be the exception to that, because I think it would hold up pretty well with the milk addition so long as it is steeped strong.

A very good blend, but then, I am rarely disappointed by Rishi.
