From The Capilano

Amoda Tea Monthly Box – September 2015

This is a welcome & flavourful variation on chai. This has dandelion root, chicory root and beet root to create a richness that’s perfect for those working on kicking a coffee habit. Beet root adds a slight sweetness to this spicy chai. This is also amazing as a latte.

Ingredients: Dandelion root, chicory root, beet root, cardamom, ginger and cinnamon

Steep It
1 tsp per 8 oz cup
boiling
8 minutes

From The Capilano:

Dandelion Root, Chicory Root, Beet Root, Cardamom, Ginger and Cinnamon

A delicious pairing of the rich, coffee-like experience of dandelion root with fine chai spices for a truly local-meets-global experience. Caffeine-free yet completely revitalizing and full of flavour.

This was probably the wrong day for me to drink this tea: after a full day of mild and gentle Autumn Harvest Laoshan Green, six steepings worth.

And then, BAM, a very assertive Roots and Chai. Dandelion root in tea tends to rub me the wrong way. I had given the bag a good shake, but still.

I steeped it the recommended 8 minutes.

The smell of this tea is vile.

The taste is deep and spicy chai-like with this odd mint-like bite at the end. Perhaps it is the ginger. Though I like ginger and I don’t usually find that it comes as an aftertaste. And then, there’s this odd tongue-tingle effect like one gets from mint sometimes. Though I know that mint is not listed as one of the ingredients.

This is my first cup of this, and I will attempt a second steeping. And then, I will probably try this another time to see whether it was completely unfair of me to drink this after a day of a most lovely and gentle green.

The second steeping was less bad.

I received this as part of Amoda’s September tea box along with three other teas from The Capilano. The flavors are strong. I can taste the chicory and the ginger and also something artificial that reminds me of the cloying sweetness of licorice. The ingredients don’t list licorice in this blend so I’m not sure what I’m tasting here. There’s a slight bitterness too, probably from the chicory.

Flavors: Artificial, Bitter, Ginger, Licorice

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more 1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML
