drank Smooth Chai by Pickwick
979 tasting notes

Another one off tea chosen at random from my stash.

This is a nice reddy brown colour when brewed without creamer and goes the usual tea colour with creamer added. I usually don’t drink tea with sugar or creamer but made an exception today (with the creamer at least).

Smells like a typical Chai, looks like a typical Chai and also tastes like a typical Chai. Cardamom, cinnamon, ginger and clove all noticeable in taste and smell. I am not a huge Chai fan because of the ingredients, while I love Cinnamon I am not so sure about cardamom and clove. And with Chai it’s the cardamom that is usually most noticeable.

Nothing special about this tea but I feel I am judging it slightly unfairly since I am not a Chai fan.

I am 26 years old from Leicester, England. I have been drinking tea for many years now and have been getting more and more appreciative about good tea’s. I like to try new and exciting tea’s and import regularly as a treat.

Tea wise my cravings change constantly from pu erh one month to jasmine green to the next and so on.

I adore cats and have four of my own called Honey, Cassie, Mr Soots and Ivory.

I also have two fish tanks which thankfully my cats have no interest in. They house an array of tropical fish and shrimp.

I am a proud vegetarian and have been for the majority of my life. When I say vegetarian I mean just that as well, no fish or seafood, no chicken now and again, no animal products such as gelatine and cochineal.

I am also an avid reader and enjoy curling up with a book (mostly crime, horror, thriller, literature genres) in one hand and a cup of tea in the other.

I also enjoy watching Japanese Anime and horror films.

I am always up for tea swaps so if you see anything in my virtual cupboard then please contact me.
