I had just recalled drinking this tea over the past weekend.

We had decided to take a trip Saturday to see Taken 2 in a better local theater, so we decided to also have dinner in a favorite seafood place that faces the Pacific Ocean.

Besides the Starbucks Chai latte, I did not have any other tea that day, so I decided to compliment my salmon seafood salad with a green tea.

While steeping, I wasn’t really sure why the green tea didn’t necessarily smell like a proper green tea, as it had a healthy scent of mint.

After about 5 minutes of steeping, I removed the teabag from the tiny pot and noticed the tag read “Chai Green”.

I kind of laughed, as it wasn’t a green tea I had asked for, but I don’t mind Chai teas at all… but I do mind Chai teabags.

The flavor is a little off, as it is trying to be two things it can’t, and there isn’t enough of either to give a concrete body or actual flavor.

You cannot taste the green tea, let alone smell it, and the Chai spices are barely there, giving it quite a weak flavor.

The teabag had a stronger scent than it’s proposed flavor, but fortunately I didn’t really have any expectations.

I should have used sugar as well.
