Another Nepal Tea chai, this one on a green base. Sample was a handy single-serve teabag instead of a non-resealable packet stuffed with leaf.

The brewed tea of this one smells more strongly of mint and citrus, reminding me less of a chai and more of a Morrocan Mint tea. I like the Morrocan Mint flavor profile, but dislike gunpowder green tea, so I tend to really enjoy those flavors on alternate green bases. I also like my mint greens with a touch of lemony herb.

The tea tastes very clean and refreshing… surprising since this is a very old green. I’m tasting a nice mix of spearmint, herbaceous/hay/citrus from the lemongrass, and a slightly more pithy/tangy citrus at the end of the sip from the orange peel. The ginger and cinnamon is very mild… I had a hard time even placing them in the blend at all. If I take a long sip and let the tea linger on my tongue a bit before the swallow, I can then make out a subtle spice note, but the tea remains gentle and smooth… it doesn’t provide a kick.

A nice Morrocan Mint-type tea, without the unpleasant smoky notes I get from more traditional MM blends that use gunpowder.
