Unique chai tea

Likes : Unique Flavor Profile.

Dislikes : Bitter if Over-Steeped.

Best Served : Evening.

Chai teas are usually bold and spicy. This one is rather different - delicate, lemony, slightly sweet. Very nice, the combination of lemongrass and fennel works surprisingly well.

Got this as a free sample, wasn't quite sure what to expect. Can find chai blends too spicy sometimes. Love this tea. Heavier on the fennel than the lemon grass. Perhaps the blend confuses my palate but I get quite a strong honey taste too. Definite citrus aftertaste. Nothing overpowering (unless you don't like fennel, lemon grass or citrus obviously...). Intend to order with next purchase.

Exotic flavors and very high-quality tea.

Likes : Smooth Body.

Best Served : Morning.

Firstly, I love that the "plucked-on" date is right on the outside of the package. The lemongrass goes really well with the rich tea flavor. It has a wonderful grape-like smell that is typical of Darjeeling teas and the only problem I would say I found is the fennel is a little bit over-powering for me. The black tea provides a great burst of energy though and it really comes in handy early in the morning. I plan on trying this tea again soon.

Great all-around Chai

Likes : Great Aroma, High Quality.

I believe that the word 'Masala" means mix in Urdu and this mix is definitely a hit with my friends and I. It has a very strong flavor because of the fennel and lemon grass and I like to mix in a little bit of sugar as well. This tea is very high quality and I can drink it all day and night without getting tired ofc in my opinion!

The lemongrass aroma is simply waking you up and the fennel intense taste confirms this state.

If you like chai that isn't overly spicy, then you will enjoy this one. It has a pleasant taste and the spices are not overpowering as in some other chai teas. This tea can be enjoyed anytime of day.
