Huh, very interesting tea. What looks to be a Chinese green tea but the origin is from Germany which I think is a little strange.

The flavoring in this blend is pretty potent, in addition to the natural spices there is also an artificial flavor of some kind. I am getting LOTS of cinnamon which somewhat obscures the other stuff in here. There is a lot of ginger, which I don’t mind but I’m having a more difficult time finding the cardamom. It did take soymilk well.

Overall, not bad. I would probably drink this if I had it, but I think I’ll keep looking elsewhere. The cinnamon in this blend is a little overwhelming to me.

I have their Rooibos Chai and that is a product of Germany as well. I imagine that’s where the tea is blended. I wonder if TG is their German source?

I suppose anything is possible, I don’t actually see a green chai on the TG site myself. There might be a few other importers.

ScottTeaMan

It is because their source tea is blended there. :)) I doubt if TG is their vendor.

When looking through all my samples, deciding what to test next, this one popped out at me. I forgot about it. I just tested Stash’s Kashmiri Chai Green, so this is another green chai to compare it with. To be fair, this lists ginger as 2nd ingredient (after green tea), and that worries me. I much prefer cinnamon and clove (which were dominant in the Stash).

The package aroma is amazing. Upton seems to use strong flavorings when they flavor. The green leaves while brewing were more abundant. The first sip brings a familiar pause. This is just as light as the Stash one. Cinnamon and ginger…yep. Gosh, I wish I liked ginger a wee bit more. If it doesn’t dominate, I can tolerate it. But I never use it to flavor things on my own. If you DO like ginger and cinnamon, and a lightly spiced chai green tea, give this a try.

Upton’s samples start at $1. Their sample packages don’t reseal (foil that you can fold over, then I use a paperclip to seal). But they are great in that they label steeping instructions individually, with how much to use, temperature and steep time. I wish everyone did this (on full size packages as well).

I agree, I love that they have the steeping instructions on the bag!

And they are pretty accurate : )
