2 Tasting Notes
This is definitely a good strong masala chai mix, but for me, there is far too much licorice taste – not a taste I like very much.
It is a little hot, even in the mildest suggested dose used, but there is no ‘after kick’. The mix is much stronger in flavour than what you normally buy as ‘Chai tea’ in western shops.
If you like the taste of anise, fennel and licorice – and don’t mind a kick of ginger, and you feel normal blends are too bland, this might actually be something for you. Unfortunately, however, there is no ‘test’ version available, so you buy 320g (either in a nice tin or in a refill bag).
If you want something with even more of a kick, the company has two other chais to offer: (the hotter) Indian Chai and (the even hotter) Central Indian Chai.
I love the idea of a ‘Danish’ tea, i.e. a tea grown on tea bushes in Sri Lanka owned by a Danish company.
Bjergblomst = Mountain flower
It smells divine and like something I should love, but to me, there might have been a bit too much black tea compared to the green tea. So not something I think I will be buying again, but would readily recommend to others.
I, unfortunately, did not try the reuse the tea for 2nd steep, which is supposed to give a better taste, according to the manufacturer. I will give this another try later on to see if the second steep is more to my taste.
“Contains: 56% Green Sencha tea, 39% Black Pekoe tea, 1% Rose, 1% Cornflower, 1% Sunflower and 2% ‘aroma’.
Tea leaves can be reused 1-2 times. Second steeping is thought to be the best."
