Thank you Chi Whole Leaf for this sample.
This is not a review, ok well it is but it’s a pre-review. Tomorrow I aim to sit and review each of these properly, not to mention thoroughly. As for now out of the five samples received this is the one I am the most eager to try for two reasons. 1 – I LOVE ginger. 2 – I LOVE chai.
So a quick taste of this as I cannot wait any longer. Well, I’ve only had the sample for a couple of hours. It shows the power of temptation.
Anyway, back on point. This is sooo easy to make. 1/2 a teaspoon with boiling water, splash of milk and a thorough mix. Oh and I added sweetener today, just some calorie free stuff. Simple, takes seconds.
The mix smells spicy, not over the top spicy but it gave me an ‘ooph’ moment when I opened the little sachet.
In terms of flavour I must say….I AM LOVING IT! So much so that I am truly considering buying more, even though money is tight and I vowed not to buy any more tea. (Though after saying this I realize yesterday I placed an order with Siam Tea). Super naughty of me!
The ginger is mild but spicy and lingers in the after taste, and as for this being a Rooibos blend it’s actually very clean tasting. I can tell it is Rooibos but it’s mild in terms of flavour, it adds some body and sweetness above the chemical, herbal tones. Also says this one contains clove which I can pick out towards the after taste. Refreshing, spicy yet still subtle.
Yes. I do love this one. As I drink it more and more I can see myself taking this with me to friends houses and such for ease of making and transporting.
No rating today, shall wait until tomorrow. But for today, thumbs up.
