I’m having a cup of this now, and even though I’ve burned my tongue on it… it’s still AWESOME! I’ll try to be more specific later :D As with all my chais and most blacks this was taken with milk :D

Boiling

much better than chocolate chili chai by David’s Tea (and the only other chocolate chai I’ve tried) I can taste chocolate and the ginger talks a little louder but doesn’t shout. I also have this feeling in my mouth that is similar to when I eat bacon (watering mouth and leaves me craving more) I don’t see how anyone can not love this :D

Sil

Aaaaah! I so don’t need more tea in my cupboard lol

Helena

I’m just glad that when I ordered, I ordered an ounce :D

Thanks for mentioning that about DT’s version. I love DT chocolate chai, so I will definately order Verdant’s version from what you have to say about it. I was just about to place an order, how perfect!

Glad you liked the chai Helena! I love it as well :) I ordered 4 oz of this and am happy I did, as I see it is sold out already :( Lol David has a hit on his hands I believe!

Have you tried the Laoshan Village chai? It is very good, although I do prefer the phoenix chai for some reason… I am still training my taste buds, so I really don’t know exactly why I prefer one over the other, unfortunately :(

Sil

Crap. Lol I was going to be picking it up today. Ah well…

HyBr1d

Well, it looks like there is no need to panic… On the Verdant site it says that they expect to have this great chai back in stock in about a week or so, so hopefully you wont miss out :)

Sil

ooh thanks a ton hybr1d! missed seeing that :)

Helena

I think I prefer the Laoshan Village Chai :D Although I haven’t drank as much of it as the chocolate phoenix chai. I’m trying to drink up some of my stash so I have room in the cupboard again :D

Sil

Helena – any reason why that you can articulate hahah and I know the feeling on drinking up some of your stash.

Helena

I think I’m drinking it more because like bacon or pretzels I get that salty type feeling the one that makes you crave more snacks. So I thought I better finish it before I start to gain weight :D I’ve also found that I only like this one with lots of milk (some chais are just that way) so it’s a good tea but I won’t buy it again :)

Sil

Ahhh thanks for the details :) I don’t think I’ve yet to have any tea with milk. Glad you’re enjoying the teas though. Wish we had more companies in Canada like this…although that being said we probably do and I’m just in the dark haha

As far as getting my tea cupboard in order, I’m kind of in the same boat as you are, Helena! I am actually going to be holding off ordering because of all the tea I have that I don’t drink on a regular basis…. Luckily, I thought ahead a bit and have a reserve of 4oz each of the Laoshan Black and Zhu Rong! I really should get more Dancong Black, but I think I will wait until I see that the stock is low. I have 2 oz of the Laoshan Chai that I need to finish too! Problem is that I find it hard to resist new teas, especially black teas and darker oolongs… It may be heresy but I am actually not a fan of tieguanyin. I would like to try a dark roast one though, as there is a charcoal roast dong ding from aurateas that I really enjoy, and would think a tieguanyin roasted similarly would taste similar.

Lol tea is becoming a bit of an addiction for me!

Bio

I read ebooks on My Samsung Galaxy S3 8" tablet mostly scifi/fantasy with some mystery thrown in. I should also mention that I read graphic novels from Marvel to Manga.
I have a big English Mastiff who is completely adorable.
I play mostly Guild Wars 2 and some silly phone app games :D

I also hate all coffee flavoured things and yes that does include Cappuccino. I can’t stand tobacco either.

I’m not a vegan or vegetarian while I respect those that are. Anyone who gets between me and my meat.. well just don’t :D
I also don’t drink alcohol or smoke. beer,coolers etc.. all taste horrible to me. As for the smoke, besides the health hazards it smells awful!
