Episode 291: West Cape Chai

west-cape-chai

Rishi Tea’s West Cape Chai is inspired by the West Cape province of South Africa. This lively blend is a rooibos chai with cinnamon, cardamom, star anise (look at that pod!), ginger, black pepper, fennel, peppermint, clove, and ramón nut. You don’t see that every day!

Even with this great mix of herbs and spices, the tea is just kinda middle-of-the-road for me. The peppermint and ramón nut add nice sweet and nutty components to the blend, but not so much that they really change the overall flavor. Your mileage may vary.
