A nutrient dense tea with a nice fragrance
21 March 2018
Of all the teas I have tried of The Indian Chai, and I have tried almost all of them, this is my least favorite. And that is not to say it is not good! It is a very unique kind of tea and I suspect it needs getting used to.
Let me start with the pros.
It has an electrifying fragrance thanks to lemon & ginseng. When you take a sniff after opening the pack, it immediately lifts your spirits. I loved the smell of the brew more than the brew itself!
Another huge plus is the incorporation of diverse ingredients to make a nutrient rich tea. In particular the Asian ginseng, which I don't find in ordinary teas, definitely added that extra punch to make this a tea one with immense health benefits.
Moving on to the areas where the tea does not impress.
I for one did not like the presence of dehydrated honey. It did nothing for me and I would have preferred adding a spoonful of honey syrup myself. That said, the dehydrated powder has its advantages. If you're too lazy/busy/traveling to take the effort to add honey yourself, this is godsend!
Overall I found something a bit off, can't put my hand on it. My guess is the combination of dehydrated lemon powder AND lemon peel in addition to dehydrated honey powder were not an ideal combination. Perhaps only lemon peel might have sufficed. Perhaps.
Despite these trivial issues, this tea is definitely one to look out for. It did not suit my taste palette but that is not to say it lacks anything. My suggestion would be to try it, you may like it!
