Last chai from my Nepal Tea samplers, this one on a white tea base. It came in a single-serve sachet teabag rather than loose leaf, like some of the other chai samplers.
The steeped tea has a citrusy aroma, as well as a mix of ginger and cinnamon. I was really worried this would be too potent for me, as sichuan pepper is listed in the ingredients, and I’m extremely spice sensitive… but I’m not getting any burning sensation during or after the sip. I do have a very pleasant and welcome warming down my throat; I sprouted a bad cold overnight, and my throat, nose, and chest are all sore and mucusy. I see the base is the White Prakash tea that I tasted strong citrus notes in when I had it cold brewed, so I’m assuming that, mixed with the lemongrass, is where I’m getting the mellow citrusy/lemony flavor of the tea. Of the spices, I taste mostly ginger, with a more mild pepperiness, in the spice.
While their green chai tasted like a Moroccan Mint blend to me, this white chai tastes like a Lemon Ginger tea (albeit less abrasive with nothing artificial/cleaner-esque about it). Very happy to be having this with this sore throat.
