Kesar Delight Chai

description

A delightful white tea blend, this one stands as quite ceremonious. An exotic medley of pure saffron, delicate white tea and tangy lemongrass, this tea will give you a flavor rush from the first sip. Take in heady scent of saffron and spring flowers as the fragile flavors fill your senses. The taste starts out a bit spicy, followed by the sweet aftertaste of maple syrup. The tangy kick of lemongrass is felt towards the end. The finish is sweet and smooth.

This was such a delightful surprise. Not at all what I expected from a chai tea. So smooth. Reminded me of a nice green tea with a maple hint for sweetness. Truly won me over with this one.

A quiet evening tea

Likes : Freshness, Unique Flavor Profile.

Dislikes : Weak.

Best Served : Evening.

The tea is enjoyable, with a unique flavour ideal for an calm evening sip. It's fresh without being sweet. However, it's not what I'd expect of a chai, as it can be a bit too delicate. I got this as part of a subscription, and probably won't order it again, but I'm glad to have had a chance to sample it.

I received this one in the Golden Moments tea pack, and it's one I will happily order more of. The white tea really lets the array of flavor notes sing.

I have never encountered a white chai before. I found it tasty, but also very light (as to be expected of a white tea). Not a tea that I would likely purchase on its own simply because I prefer stronger teas that can be enjoyed with milk.

Wonderfull balancing tea

Likes : Freshness, Great Aroma, Smooth Body, High Quality, Unique Flavor Profile.

Best Served : Afternoon, Evening.

This tea is really something unique. I have never tried a tea with real saffron before! And it is delicious! The aroma is relaxing and full. The taste is well balanced between good quality tea, saffron and hints of chamomille and lemongrass. It's great, beacause i was afraid that lemongrass and chamomille are too strong to accompany subtle notes of tea and saffron. This tea balancies body and mind. Very relaxing and comforting. The only thing i regret is that it is too expencieve to drink it often ;)

Lovely savory change of pace

Likes : High Quality, Unique Flavor Profile.

If you like saffron, this is a surprise and a delight. I would gladly pay more to have a bit more saffron in it, as it has only a very mild saffron taste. But it's lovely as is.

Less spicy than one would expect from a chai

Likes : Freshness.

Dislikes : Weak.

Best Served : Evening.

I expected a rather spicier, more flavorful taste from a chai. It's not a bad taste from this, just very delicate and a bit floral.

While this is a good tea, floral and slight spice it is WEAK. I brewed at the suggested strength. I would have to double the amount to get a strong taste that I prefer. It is enjoyable, just not flavorful.

Not a typical chai

Likes : Freshness, Smooth Body.

Best Served : Evening.

This tea doesnt taste like a typical chai - it tastes as if chai had a baby in the springtime. Floral and soft are the two key words I would use to describe. A delight to drink.

Nice refreshing flavor. The one thing is once I let it steep very long and it became too strong for my taste.

I found this to be a unique white tea blend. It’s delicate and it’s definitely not the wake-me-up kind of chai, but it has an interesting finish, which I love. There’s a hint of spice at first sip, then slowly comes a slightly sweet(like honey and water?), lemony flavour that lingers for quite some time in your taste buds. I think it’s a perfect cup before hitting bed.

Perfect For the Forgetful

Likes : Great Aroma, Smooth Body, High Quality.

Best Served : Anytime, Morning, Afternoon, Evening.

The Kesar Chai is my favorite from my Tea Box! It is great for morning commutes, as it does not become too bitter if left steeping (slightly bitter, but not by much). The floral taste has more of an earthy heaviness. Like in the description it is very much "a bit spicy followed by sweet."

This one took me by surprise, I'm not usually a white tea fan. It's very tasty, is aroma is very strong and soothing while it's steeping. Moderate strength in flavor and very practical for my after work rituals. Reviewed as part of the Teabox subscription program.

I very much prefer black teas for the daytime, but once evening comes, I switch to lighter teas as they soothe me after a long day. This is a very light tea, very good taste, especially with the saffron. Will buy again!

Great tea

The tea itself looks very fresh and smells amazing. It steeps to the color of a white tea. Very flavorful, light profile that needs little to no sweetening. Reviewed as part of the Teabox subscription program.

second favorite!

Likes : Great Aroma.

Dislikes : Strong.

I enjoyed this tea greatly and I can't wait to have another cup. It was a little strong/bitter for me but I plan on using a little agave to sweeten it a tiny bit but it is good by itself I just had to pace myself drinking it.

Mild, relaxing chai for evening

Likes : Freshness, Great Aroma.

Dislikes : Weak.

This is a good chai with some very delicate and subtle flavors - white tea, saffron, and chamomile. Aroma is sweet, liquor is light. Flavor is round, unique, and sort of bland. Needs something to pick it up a bit!

Excellent flavor, but weak. I thought adding some honey made the tea a lot better, and I normally don't like my teas sweet.

My new favorite

I knew I had a new favorite from the moment I opened the bag and smelled the mixture. This is the first really chai that I have had in a long time and couldn't be happier with it. The flavors blended well and yet were distinct at the same time. I could drink this tea all day.

One of the outstanding blends from the chai collection! Silky, smooth & the lingering taste of saffron is splendid. The golden orange color, the aroma of floral & citrus is sensous. I enjoy this every evening & quite addicting too. Please please please don't remove this from your blends.

This is one of the most interesting white tea blends I've tasted. There are hints of lemon without being sour, whispers of sweetness without being sugary. The flavors are rounded, subtle and blend very well - the effect is very soothing. I don't often drink white teas because I tend to find them too mild for my tastes, but this blend stands out to me as a unique and high-quality product.

Exotic, very special tea

Likes : Great Aroma.

This tea is simply incredible. It is a very high quality tea leaf and it also comes with the most exotic spice known to man-- saffron! I like drinking this tea anytime of day,but I especially like it with something sweet after a big meal. This exotic tea has a wonderful flavor and was quickly one of my favorites.

The colour is beautiful when brewed, and the smell is really good and delicious, enticing and strong. The taste is slightly flat, though, and would probably benefit from a hint of ginger to spice it up. It goes great with a hint of sugar or honey, and doesn't need milk.

great early morning tea and refreshing afternoon drink. The only thing would like you add is a hint of ginger to give that extra special ting.

Dislikes : Weak.

Best Served : Morning, Afternoon.

The white tea quality used is good and saffron flavouring does blend well with the tea. If only a slight hint of ginger is added to this tea it will enhance the taste and flavour of the tea and reduce the slight dullness present.
