I can’t decide if this was supposed to be a dupe of Coco Mango Chai or not.
The copy could be interpreted to imply that, and the ingredients list has a decent amount of overlap… but the taste profile is just so different that it’s a bad recreation if that was the point. So, I’m gonna choose to think of it as its own this entirely – because with that mindset then I actually liked it a lot!
Of the spices, cardamom is the one that stands out the most to me and I really like that because cardamom has this citrusy note to it naturally that works well with a fruity leaning chai like this. I also got a nice peppery finish to the sip, and the earthiness of the turmeric and ginger that grounded the cup a bit. However, my favourite thing about this was the sweet and tropical fruity notes – mango, for sure, but also guava!? Guava isn’t a name ingredient in this blend, but it could be a flavouring. I actually think it’s probably not though, and it’s just my brain interpreting the combo of tropical fruit flavours in an interesting way.
Overall body of the cup is thin – I imagine this wouldn’t have the thickness to ice well, but with that in mind it was a surprisingly lovely hot cup!
