344 Tasting Notes
This is more chocolate than spice, at least to my tastes. In my world that’s a good thing. Not my favorite chocolate tea, but it’s pretty good.
Thanks VariaTEA for sending me this sample.
I was really hesitant to try this, but if VariaTEA is generous enough to send it to me, I should at least give it a shot.
Yeah, I know – I’m the queen of chai – have TONS in my house – but the ingredient list doesn’t read like chai to me. (I also really don’t like licorice – this says both star anise and licorice.) Oh well here goes nothing….
This is too strange, there are too many conflicting flavors – and I don’t think chai is any of them. Fruity pu’erh with licorice (not strong – more subtle star anise). Weird, I think pu’erh adds nice depth and undertones to chocolate flavors, and to things like Davids Coffee Pu’erh – but this pu’erh is fighting the fruit for attention – then I just can’t get past the licorice.
Sorry VariaTEA – really liked the coconut chai, really don’t like this one. I’m not going to rate it re me not liking licorice, but this gets abotu 25… Will take the deodorant white over this any day.. :))
This is MUCH better!! I like this so much more than the fruity white last night. Thanks VarieTEA for the chance to taste this one.
It’s a really nice fruit white tea. Nice subtle white that is present but in the background. Sweet poegranate, just a touch of tart. Well balanced. I don’t have anything negative to say. I like it.
I’ve done well so far with the CaesarsTeas that VariaTEA sent me. Need to make a mental not for next BF…
I was actually drinking this last night. Thanks VariaTEA for sending me this sample.
It was ok. It’s a fruity white, I’m into that. I don’t think I liked the white base thought. Not quite sure what it was, not really bitter, just strong (that’s a strange word for a white tea). Not sure what it was. I’ve had better fruit white teas.
Thanks VariaTEA – always enjoy trying new teas and I didn’t hate it as bad as you did. :))
I received this in a surprise package from VariaTEA – thank you so much.
I really like this – really really like this. It’s creamy coconut with mild chai spices. I really like the balances of spices and then the coconut is just a bonus addition. I don’t think this is my perfect chai, but it’s getting close.
Thanks VariaTEA for introducing me to this one.
Thanks nxtdoor for sending me a sample of this tea.
I wish this had more cherry – but then again, I wish all cherry teas had more cherry. Nice green base, no bitterness, a little cherry, a little floral. Thumbs up. I like it. (Second cup I added some cherry tisane and it’s really good like that.)
Thanks nxtdoor really appreciate it.
I went and to get some cherry tisane to add to this, and realized that I don’t have very much (3-4tsp). OMG what am I going to do without cherry tisane in my house? I’m on a strict no tea buying hiatus. I am going to HAVE to find someone with cherry tisane to swap.
Thanks for sending me this sample nxtdoor Really appreciate it.
It’s a nice sweet mango rooibos.
Thanks nxtdoor for sending me a sample of this popular tea.
It’s subtle maple with some nut in the background.
Thanks to nxtdoor for sending me this sample.
It’s a nice, light, fruity white tea. I’m getting more mango than pear, but real rather than fake fruit. If it wasn’t so cold here, I would have tried it cold steeped (wrong season for that). I would like this in the summer.
A little overleafed – 80C – 4 minutes = fun little fruit tea. Thanks nxtdoor.
Thanks nxtdoor for sending me this sample.
This is grape but it’s also really, really floral. The floral becomes stronger and takes over the grape as it cools.
Sorry this isn’t my style of tea. Thanks for the opportunity to try it nxtdoor.
