I thought this was the second least weird (or maybe the least weird overall, now that I think about it) of the Savory Teas, because I love carrot juice, and I’ve seen carrot and curry spices in teas before, so I ventured into this cup tonight.
This steeps up literally smelling like a curry. Or at the very least like an Indian spice shop. The curry and carrot smells are most striking, but there’s definitely ginger and a subtle amount of cilantro.
The cup has an overall smoother and brothier mouthfeel than the Tomato Mint. There’s a fresh cilantro burst in the sip, as well as the salty umaminess I experienced with Tomato Mint. There’s definitely a carrot element that seems to hit right after the cilantro, and the curry seems to be a blend of spices, and reminds me of the McCormick Mild Curry spice blend.
This is kind of like a meal unto itself, and I really enjoy this. Definitely more of a soup than the Tomato Mint. This is an awesome winter drink.
