This one smells MOST unusual!!!
I can smell Gunpowder, Lemon, Cumin, and Cinnamon right off the bat. I can honestly say I have never smelled anything quite like this.
The leaves, once unraveled, are fairly large and a green-gray color.
The liquid is a light to medium yellow-brown. It’s a little gritty.
Post infusion the tea liquid’s aroma evens out quite a bit.
I really wasn’t sure what to expect with the taste of this one! But it’s almost sweet with a hint of spice. And the spice flavor I am tasting IS the cumin…not much else. I do like that the lemongrass seems to help counteract the spice.
Based solely on the flavor of the tea – I don’t know if I would be able to identify that it’s a GREEN Chai…but when you see the ingredients list it makes sense.
This is a pretty decent tasting green overall…but if you are looking for the classic spicy chai taste – I don’t think you will find what you need in this tea. But based on the tasty-factor…it’s not bad.
