I was indecisive this morning and this sounded good. I think I prefer Green chais rather than black chais….hmm. Never thought I would like a green more than my beloved black tea.
This is an extraordinary cup. A light to medium bodied green tea, ginger, cardamon, cinnamon, and almond. I like black chai with black pepper, but a chai without black pepper is really a sweet and savory drink. I served twelve ounces of this to my hard-working brother and he said “Mmm … you don’t say.”
I’m such a fan! Drinking this you can taste just as much chai as you can green. And then there’s this cinnamon every now and then — very stubble. Again with Republic of Tea, a very light flavor overall. But soo good! I tried this at a friend’s but planning on getting some for myself.
I bought this not really knowing what to expect. It was kind of a spur-of-the-moment buy: I was really looking for RoT’s Honey Ginseng green tea, but couldn’t find that at the store I was in, so I got this instead. I really like green teas, and I really like chai, but the only chai teas I have ever had had a black tea base. So I really didn’t know what this might taste like. You can definitely smell the spices and the almond in this one from the bag before being steeped. Once steeped, you can taste the spices too, although the almond flavor is definitely less pronounced than I hoped it would be. That was a little bit unfortunate, in my opinion, since I do like almond flavors in my tea. Not a bad tea, but definitely not my favorite. It definitely wasn’t disappointing, however, and I would contemplate maybe buying it again, just to change things up once and a while.
