drank Chocolate Chai by Adagio Teas
21 tasting notes

This is a good chai. The spices are distinct. However, I am puzzled because of the word “chocolate” displayed prominently in the name, and which, in the first place, prompted me to try it. There isn’t detectible chocolate here, and I brewed it a couple of times. Apparently, chocolate is not an easy flavor to convey in tea. Don’t get me wrong; I like this black tea. But the company should remove “chocolate” from the name. It could be misleading because the focus is not on the chocolate.

EDIT: I had only had this tea hot. To be fair, I’d like to edit my tasting note. When fully cold, I could feel a subtle, almost woody chocolate flavor. Interestingly, when it’s completely cold, the spices were not as prominent as in the hot tea.

I grew up drinking herbal tea, in many cases tea that I picked myself: chamomile, linden flowers, lemon balm, thyme, and hibiscus teas were an important part of my childhood experience. I learned to appreciate their delicate flavors. I am not new to black or green teas, but somehow, I had found them boring. My introduction to flavored teas—oolong, black or green—was a few years ago, and I’ve been hooked since then. Today, I still enjoy herbal teas. I’ve always been very sensitive to smells, so to me, the balance between flavor and aroma is very important. Tea is one of those small luxuries in life that allows us to combine our olfactory senses with taste.

I tend to like: herbal teas, “dessert” teas with vanilla, chocolate, or other flavors, and floral teas.
