Green Tea Chai is another NEW offering from Rishi and the taste of this was quite good to me and my palate. There isn’t an “over-the-top” chai taste present but here is what I did find…
A nice lemony surprise! Simply-Put in less than 5 words, I guess you could say. But since many of you are probably looking for a little more in-depth description…here-goes!
I can mostly taste a nice standard yet more sweeter green tea taste, lemon, and a little bit of a peppery taste. I am not totally sure if it’s more of an actual pepper taste or a ginger taste that is causing the pepperiness so I guess that’s why I would describe the pepper taste as a little-bit. I would also describe the licorice and peppermint flavors as gentle, too, with neither being too prominent, yet, somewhat identifiable overall.
All of the ingredients work very well together but I will say that the lemon is the most noticeable flavor to both the nose and the tongue.
This was citrusy-sweet and tasty. I would certainly add this to my thumbs-up list from Rishi!
