I’m hit or miss with Tealux flavored teas. This is ok. I think it’s more chocolate than chai and the pu’erh base adds depth to that.
Dark chocolate with some spice, that’s what this is to me. Nothing offensive, but just ok….

Most of the time, it’s a miss for me. But I really like their straight teas. If I remember correctly, they had a 30% off sale around christmas last year, their biggest sale…hope I’m right, I’m almost out of everything of theirs!

Agreed, I like a lot of their straight teas. They have 20-25% off sales quite often. Their prices are pretty reasonable to start with then with the sales make it really accessible.
(Boxing Day is the busiest shopping day of the year in Canada – that was probably when the sale was…)

TheTeaFairy

Yes, probably boxing day, I’ll check my order history with them. You’re right, their prices are really good, even without a sale. But the teas I order on regular basis are a little more pricey and like you mentioned, they have so many sales, I usually wait for that (da yu ling high mountain, wenshan baozhong and huo shan yellow tea are my favourites)

Jin Jun Mei Lapsang Golden Eyebrow is really good too :))

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.
