Strong forest fruit notes in aroma, natural and warming.
The base black tea is very subtle and unfortunately bland. I like the fruit notes in taste, but they are overwhelmed by the bland tea. Not recommended.
Flavors: Blackberry, Fruity, Raspberry, Strawberry
Very strong aroma of cinnamon, black pepper, cardamom and gloves right after getting the eta bag out of the wrapper.
Also very strong after steeping, very spicy, but with no trace of matcha (obviously, since it’s only 2% of the package). The whole aroma profile reminds me of roasted apples with spices. Very warming, very winter-y.
The taste is also fruity, but not with apple, rather with the orange peels. Plus obviously all the spice extravaganza along with the spicy bite from black pepper.
To sum up: very tasty warming tea made with fresh, aromatic ingredients. I wish it had ore proper tea, but it’s still great.
With my first brewing I wanted to drink it neat. Next time I’ll try to brew it in the proper chai way.
Edit: I brewed it in the proper chai way, sweet and with milk (rice milk; iI’m not vegan, but recently I somehow don’t like dairy in my teas and coffees).
And it’s delicious! Smoth, sweet, full-bodied, rich, with solid peppery spiciness and the rest of the spices. A perfect winter warmer.

Strong, warming, fruity aroma.
Solid malty taste with strong but slightly withdrawn fruity notes.
Very good warming brew, not overdone with fruit, not artificial and not losing the base black tea.
Flavors: Blueberry, Fruity, Malt, Raspberry
Great, refreshing bouquet of peppermint and lemongrass in aroma.
The taste is not that strong, though the brew is refreshing and light.
Not bad, but not especially good either.
It would probably turn out great asa cold brew on a sunny day.
Flavors: Citrus, Lemongrass, Mint, Peppermint
Strong apple aroma, very warming and hyggeligt, with just a right amount of cinnamon added.
Warming taste, very fruity, with no unnecessary sweetness. Not overdone with spices, the apple is in the foreground. Too bad that the cranberry hides well in the back.
Flavors: Apple, Cinnamon, Cranberry, Spices
Very faint aroma, with traces of elderflower over a malty black tea base.
Sweetish taste, with evident rhubarb here (but none of its sourness) and flower elderflower notes.
All in all it’s not bad, but seems slightly half-baked.
Flavors: Flowers, Fruity, Malt, Rhubarb
Milk, caramel and sweetness are dominant, you can barely taste the black tea. Not actually bad and it really brings the proper chai to mind, but could use more of the tea component.
But if dissolved not in water, but in previously brewed black tea, it becomes much more interesting, more rich and complex. I suggest this way of preparing.
Flavors: Caramel, Milk, Spices, Sweat
Strong chocolate and caramel aroma, with solid, malty black tea base.
The taste is not that good. I generally like Fredsted teas, but this one tastes like a steeped cardboard – bland, watery, with artificial flavouring.
At first no quince in aroma, just earthy, malty base tea. After the brew cools down a little,, it becomes quite strong.
In taste there’s a nice balance between quince and tea notes.
All in all it’s nothing special, but passable.
Very refreshing, fruity aroma, quite balanced.
The taste is quite full, malty, with subtle notes of buckthorn and citrusy notes in the background. The tea is no sour at all, though it contains two sour ingredients.
Flavors: Fruity, Lemon, Lemongrass, Malt
Aroma dominated by strawberries and blackberries, quite mild. Black tea notes very subtle.
A lot of blackberries in taste, subtle strawberries. The fruit notes are nice, but the base black tea is very bland, so all in all I can’t recommend it.
Flavors: Blackberry, Strawberry
