I bought a package of this tisane at Mint Tea which is a little tea house in Vancouver, WA, but I was told that their supplier of many of their loose leaf teas is Strand Tea, and after looking at their website, I found this tea on there. However, since I bought it from Mint Tea with their house “label” on it rather than a Strand label, I am calling it a tea from Mint Tea.
The ingredients are somewhat chai-like and there are flavors here that are chai-like but this isn’t quite as chai-like as I would have guessed based upon the ingredient list. The chicory and barley malt give this a different taste and “feel.” The chicory gives it a deep, toasty flavor that is very coffee-ish. The malt … well, it gives it a malt flavor. :)
I like the way the chicory and cacao work together in this tisane. Very pleasant and nice to sip on a cold winter’s evening.
