Thanks MissB for this sample.
WOW!!! SPICY!!!! not flavor spice HOT SPICY!!!! OMG HEAT!!!!
I think I can do spicy foods. This is over the top for me. I think it’s offensively hot. The hot just drowns out all the other flavors, you can’t taste it for the heat.
Sorry MissB – this is a HUGE miss for me.

Yikes! I’m really happy I didn’t buy that one from BreTEAlly Sweet now! I’m also happy you’ve only got just a sample and not the full 2oz.

I can’t picture having tea that is that spicy. Did you use milk?

It was suppose to be chai, I added some sweet and some milk. It’s like chocolate chai with a tsp of cayenne in it.
I eat Sriracha on everything. Love spicy curry, I eat hot wings. I can’t drink this…..

JustJames

um…. i think i may have gotten a bit of this from her as well….. thanks for the heads up! lol. i KNOW i can’t do spice.

Tuscanteal

Blech… well good to know if I ever buy or try this tea.

Bonnie

Mix it with another chai… 1 part this to 4 parts another chai?

MissB

Oh gosh. No! That’s horrible. Yikes. I have yet to try it… and I love spicy things, but that sounds just plain yuck. I’m so sorry.

Bio

C.S. Lewis – “You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me.”

I needed to update my profile. I joined Steepster 03Mar13. I am just amazed at how much my tastes have changed since then.
When I discovered loose leaf tea about a year and half ago, I didn’t know anything other than my local Davids and Teavana/Teaopia. Stumbling onto Steepster CHANGED EVERYTHING.
Hello, my name is Dex I’m a tea addict.
I’ve been through the “I need to try every single tea out there” phase. I really hope the worst of that has passed. I’ve learned enough to know that I only need to try HALF of all the teas out there. LOL
When I started this journey, I was all about the flavored rooibos and fruity tisanes. Don’t get me wrong there is still room for dessert (chocolate/caramel/nutty) Rooibos teas in my cupboard and I still do enjoy them, BUT I am quickly learning to appreciate the some of the straight teas of the world.
Big bold (but not icky)pu’erh is suddenly my favorite, followed by woody/roasted oolongs. I’m just starting to explore straight black teas, and have found some that I really like.
Generally speaking I’m not into greens at all, only like the occasional green oolong, and white teas are just too mild for my tastes (unless they are fruit flavored). I still enjoy really good fruit tisanes, but am now cold steeping them.
I don’t like floral/herbal blends, and mint anything is not on my preferred list.
I am still exploring new teas, adapting to my changing tastes, understanding more every day how little I really know about tea. Ultimately I would love to find approximately 50 teas that I just “can’t live without” and always have them in my cupboard. That might not be practical, but that what I’m searching for. It’s going to be a fun journey.

All in all, I love this site. I’ve met some wonderful people, and have gotten to try some amazing teas because of them. It really restores your faith in humanity when you get a note saying “oh by the way I sent you some tea”. Wonderful, generous, people here.
