I received a small sample of Sri Lanken Chai (AKA Chai of Sri Lanka) from Chash Tea and was pretty curious about it. It was an herbal chai.
Chash Tea states on the product description that as with most chai, cinnamon, ginger, cardamom, clove, pink and bruised pepper form the spicy foundation and said that these warm spices need to be softened and that the original Sri Lankan version uses lemongrass, coconut chips and pineapple so they combined the two in their Sri Lanken Chai (AKA Chai of Sri Lanka) from Chash Tea.
Because it was such a small sample I’m not sure if I was able to get all of the ingredients in 1 cuppa. I could clearly see lemongrass, bruised pepper, and possibly a small chip of ginger. When I opened the sample the scent of the ingredients was impressively strong and did smell like chai, lemon, and possibly candied pineapple. The taste was primarily spiced lemongrass. It’s not a bad flavor. It was lacking the notes of pineapple, coconut, and certain individual spices. Having said that the taste is yummy for a herbal chai. I’m curious what the added notes of coconut and pineapple would have been like tho in Sri Lanken Chai (AKA Chai of Sri Lanka) from Chash Tea.
Here’s the scoop!
