Tea Review: Vata (Air Balancing) (Chado Tea)

Vata (Air Balancing)
Chado Tea
Type:  Herbal
Origin:  Not Provided.
Product Description:  Calming & Slightly Warming Chamomile, saffron, licorice, ginger root, fennel seeds, rosebuds, spearmint, rose hips, lemon grass, tulsi (holy basil) natural orange flavor.

Temperature: 208° F
Amount: 3 grams
Steeping Time: 7 minutes

The dry leaves are an aromatic blend of chamomile, saffron, licorice, ginger root, fennel seeds, rosebuds, spearmint, rose hips, lemongrass, tulsi, and orange flavor.

The orange amber infusion has a heady aroma with mint, lemongrass, and rose notes coming to the front.  The flavor is sweet with notes of cool licorice, minty and floral with a long mint and licorice finish.  

This herbal blend has a refreshing cool taste while creating a warming internal sensation.  Best results are in the first infusion, though a second infusion brought a chamomile aroma to the front.  Results will likely vary slightly depending on how much of each ingredient is steeped.
