Sipdown #55

Yeaaaaah, I don’t know about this combo. Coffee and chai? Well, the husband will probably drink it if I don’t. He’s a coffee fanatic! The dry leaf aroma is about as weird as it gets. I took a sip and immediately said, “Oof, that is gross!” So yeah, this is not my cup of tea.

At first, it has a weird coffee flavor. The spices don’t help this taste more like tea. It’s just strange. Once the coffee flavor ebbs, the aftertaste is all chai spices. That’s the only redeeming quality of this tea. I am afraid coffee beans do not belong in my tea. This is just gross.

Not surprisingly, the husband does enjoy it. LOL! Well, at least someone will drink this free sample. :) My husband did want me to note that he didn’t enjoy this as much as the North African Mint tea he had earlier today. He rates this one at 50, while I’m giving it a whopping 8 for being undrinkable. That nets this tea a rating of 29.

Entering the sweet blissful world of tea aromas!

Having discovered this website at the end of July 2011, I’m so excited to share my tea adventures with all of you! I grew up with my grandmother serving Twining’s English Breakfast with cream and sugar.

But on a trip to Seattle in 2010, I stumbled into a Chinese teashop and tried my first oolong tea. I was forever changed! I embarked on a startling new love for green and white teas.

With a world of teas to discover, I was inspired to keep a tea journal to record my thoughts and new favorites. Let’s get brewing!


My ratings are completely subjective and 100% my opinion. All ratings are given in relation to each other (ie. teas are rated in the order of my enjoyment of them). Therefore, my ratings will constantly change as I try more teas.


I love swapping!!! If you see something in my cupboard you’d like to try, just send me a message. If you’d like to trade, anything on my shopping list will do or feel free to send something else entirely. I’m willing to try almost anything (although I’m not really a fan of honeybush, red rooibos, pu’erh, Lapsang Souchong, & banana-flavored teas).
