63 Tasting Notes
This cup is enjoyed all over the world, but you can call it an Indian dessert chai. Vanilla and hazelnut are sweet and bold with the stimulating spices of chicory, carob, cinnamon, cardamon, ginger, stevia, clove and black pepper. This is what millionaires drink when they go to Bombay.
This is an extraordinary cup. A light to medium bodied green tea, ginger, cardamon, cinnamon, and almond. I like black chai with black pepper, but a chai without black pepper is really a sweet and savory drink. I served twelve ounces of this to my hard-working brother and he said “Mmm … you don’t say.”
This is one of the many “Thai Chais”. This cup has a light green base with lemongrass, ginger, coconut, and vanilla. In my opinion that is a beautiful combination. The flavor is pleasant and it makes you want to drink the whole pot in one sitting. This is a good tea for someone who frowns at tea in general. Like all Thai Chais this one sends you to Thailand in your mind.
This is a red tea that made me glow with pride for buying it. It’s a cranberry orange redbush cup. You can really taste the presented flavors well. Cranberry and orange makes me feel very happy. Harney and Sons use very good ingredients and their blenders are astute. Every time I’m at the book emporium I see the rack with this tea on it and I smile.
This is a wonderful and very romantic herbal. You could call this a Cuban herbal tea as lime and mint is featured in their national beverage. I enjoy this tea at midnight when caffeine isn’t an idea. Great for an all night party.
This green tea says to brew with boiling water. You never brew green tea with boiling water. I made it with 165 F water and it tasted horrible, like the scraps from chopped garden vegetables you throw in the composter. The bergamot in this tea tastes like spinach. I predict this will be re-introduced.
This red chai has a velvety body and a sweet, mild flavor. It’s spicy but not bold. A nice choice if you want to try a red chai. Iced, a very refined drink. Hats off to Yogi!

This could be called an 8-ingredient herbal chai. The flavor is very very bold. This recipe is thousands of years old and Indians say it cleanses the body. This cup is so spicy it will make you sweat a few drops. Invigorating with milk and honey and great if you mix one bag with a bag of Assam.

This clever cup is a cocoa, cayenne pepper, cardamon, and ginger herbal. Very very exotic. The blend of flavors is perfect and I feel excellent. This is spicy and it will get you ready to enjoy the evening. You can call this Mexican herbal tea, or Southwestern.
This tea bag red tea (rooibos herb) is very peach at a very fair price. On its own it’s an elegant cup and a nice cup in the early morning. I also mixed a bag of this with a bag of Ceylon and it turned out nicely.
