Vahdam Advent Calendar – Day 3
Okay, turmeric take 2! This one is very smelly. I suppose I should say aromatic, so it doesn’t sound like a bad thing… XD It looks like there’s lemongrass here, which is interesting.
Wow, this is actually really good. I am so surprised by how much I’m enjoying it! The strongest flavor is the cardamom, but even that isn’t overpowering, it’s lovely and floral with a strong but palatable spiciness. I do get the turmeric earthiness in the background, which goes nicely with the cardamom. There’s a tiny pepper kick at the end of the sip that leaves a pleasant light tingle on my tongue while not burning my throat. I think there’s a bit of cinnamon and ginger here as well, I taste a bit of sweetness and a nice warmth. And I do get a hint of lemony-ness.
So pleased by how much this one surprised me! I could see this being a nice option to keep around if I’m craving a spicy tea that’s mellow enough to drink plain. :3
