drank Chai Spice by Verdant Tea
470 tasting notes

Sometimes I am drinking a cup of tea and think to myself “man, this would be great as a chai!” Which essentially is why I purchased the revamped version of this: it’s all the spices without the tea, so you can add it to whatever you want!

First experiment: mixed with Ovation’s Apple Cinnamon, honey and a splash of cream. Delicious! It’s like Adagio’s Apple Spice Chai only, you know, a million times better. Don’t get me wrong I do love the Adagio blend but the spices here are so deliciously complex. I’m going to have a lot of fun with thiw!

I love this blend! Even without tea added it keeps me up though!

I do find chai blends energizing! If I want a chai-like tea late at night I will go for Celestial’s Bengal Spice—not the classiest, but better than bouncing off the walls at midnight!

I have one celestial blend but I’m nervous to try it.

Celestial can be really hit or miss. They’re obviously not up to par with loose leaf but some of their bagged teas are very nice. I can’t live without Sleepytime and they have a fantastic dragonfruit/melon blend. Some of them are so tart though, too much hibiscus!

I like hibiscus, lol. I think I have ginigerbread though. I bought it for my daughter

Bio

Tea has always been a passion of mine, though I got away from it during college. A lack of cupboard space and a constant influx of people into my suite made me pretty much abandon my teas at home. But now that I’m done with school, it’s definitely come back with a vengeance—to the point where I’ve purchased about 65 different kinds in the past 3 months!

I like most kinds of teas—yes, even peach, which I used to think I disliked!. Oolongs are definitely my favorite, and I’m an avid fan of earl grey, floral teas, and chai blends along with anything melon. The only kind of teas on my “no” list are rooibos blends (which gives me headaches) and banana flavored ones since bananas are public enemy #1 in my mind.

The best thing about tea for me is how you can be passionate about it and still have it integrate into all of your other hobbies. I like a lot of things: writing, video games, books, sewing, figure collecting, astronomy… it’s a long list. But whatever I’m doing, I can have a cup of tea in hand!
