My Nepal Tea today is another chai, and suprisingly to me, this one was a single-serve teabag in the foil sample bag (what I assumed they all were, until I opened up the last two and had a bunch of loose leaf inside). It looks to me from the ingredients the main difference in the chai blends is this one includes some citrus notes?

The tea has a nice peppery/citrus aroma. And the citrus notes are definitely very present in the sip, as well. I can taste both the herbaceous citrus of lemongrass and the more tangy and pithy orange peel. The cardamom is, once again, the strongest spice flavor in the blend, and it pairs nicely with the citrus notes. The ginger pops toward the end of the sip and leaves a warmth in the mouth after the sip, though it isn’t unpleasant.

I’m happy to see the flavors are quite different between the two black tea chais by this company. The Nepali Breakfast one is a bit sweeter due to the stronger cinnamon note, which I’m not tasting at all in this one, and this one is a little more tangy due to the citrus. I have enjoyed both, but with my love of tangy/tart flavors, I think I prefer this one a bit more.

#tiffanys2021sipdown Tea #85 overall / Tea #1 for March

Monday 3/1 Will be writing about this tea on my instagram since I received this as part of being a #nepalteaambassador – will link the post here when I do post it. This was a sampler pack (enough for a 16 oz cuppa) so I had it hot and plain. I have a 50g pouch as well so I’ll be trying it cold brewed and such as well this month.

This tea sounds very interesting; and honestly would give it a try. But trying 50 grams is maybe too much and who knows if they deliver to EU!

This tea just really didn’t do it for me — the flavors just weren’t as strong as I was expecting for something I expected to be like a chai. Perhaps I should have played around more with how I brewed it? Not awful, but a solid “meh” from me. From a Sipsby box.

This was a free sample that came with my last order from Nepal Tea.

The first thing I notice is the actual tea to lemongrass ratio. There is certainly a lot. I like the idea of lemongrass in chai, though. It smells heavenly, spiced, and clean. There is also a considerable amount of citrus peel and coriander seed. As it steeps, the aroma reminds me of the citronella candles my mom used to keep the mosquitoes away. I used to smell those all the time on the back porch as a kid. So sweet and fresh. This tea could serve as aromatherapy, I swear.

The flavor is so comforting. Lemony with that well-rounded spice I’ve come to love from Nepal Tea. The spice especially comes through on the exhale. While I think a lot of the ingredients are muted by the lemongrass and peel, I can still taste (and rather feel) ginger, too. This is a masterpiece of a chai, much like their Nepali Breakfast. I’m probably going to end up trying every tea this company makes.

Flavors: Cinnamon, Citrus, Citrus Fruits, Citrus Zest, Citrusy, Coriander Seed, Ginger, Lemon, Lemon Zest, Lemongrass

This sounds excellent. One of the reasons I like the Kusmi Detox (green one) is because of the Lemongrass in it… Definitely will try this one out in the future.

I highly recommend it!
