Tasters Review:

After the hectic week I have been having and a major case of ‘too much info on the brain overload” I thought this would be the tea to review tonight.  This is a chai I have really been enjoying the last couple of months!

I thought it would be too full of spice – but everything works awesomely well together!  This is VERY good!

Frankincense & Myrrh…kind of make me a little nervous at first but it ended up being a unique, bold, and flavorful cup!  This has interesting spices and a slight smoke!  Plus I LOVE the names, containers, and labels Indie Tea has on their offerings…so fun!

Tasters Review:

Green Tea Chai is another NEW offering from Rishi and the taste of this was quite good to me and my palate.  There isn’t an “over-the-top” chai taste present but here is what I did find…

A nice lemony surprise!  Simply-Put in less than 5 words, I guess you could say.  But since many of you are probably looking for a little more in-depth description…here-goes!

I can mostly  taste a nice standard yet more sweeter green tea taste, lemon, and a little bit of a peppery taste.  I am not totally sure if it’s more of an actual pepper taste or a ginger taste that is causing the pepperiness so I guess that’s why I would describe the pepper taste as a little-bit.  I would also describe the licorice and peppermint flavors as gentle, too, with neither being too prominent, yet, somewhat identifiable overall.

All of the ingredients work very well together but I will say that the lemon is the most noticeable flavor to both the nose and the tongue.

This was citrusy-sweet and tasty.  I would certainly add this to my thumbs-up list from Rishi!
