When I first saw this was part of the January Steepster Select box, I was a little disappointed. Don’t get me wrong, I love chai and I LOVE Yogic Chai, but, I thought that I had tried this one already. And while I have tried a BUNCH of Yogic Chai’s blends, I haven’t tried their original… so, no longer disappointed! Instead, I’m really thrilled to finally be trying the original after having tried the other blends.

And this one is so good. Nice balance of spices, not too spicy, not too mild… but just right. The Assam does not taste bitter, it is strong and malty and makes a very smooth base for these spices. Yum! I took my first few sips without additions, then added a bit of turbinado sugar, and then made a latte… I like it all three ways, but my favorite is with just a little turbinado sugar. The spices are stronger; I think that the milk in the latte sort of mutes the flavor just a bit. Still delicious and warming, though!

I am obsessed with tea!

I’m currently trying to take over 52Teas – please help make my dream a reality: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/497705217/the-great-52teas-take-over

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:


My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination.


I don’t do a whole lot of swaps anymore, however, I do occasionally sell sampler boxes. I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. If you’re interested, keep an eye out or PM me and I’ll let you know when I have some posted.


Most of the teas that I record in my notes here are going to have a fairly high rating from me. This is not because I am not discerning, but because I do not usually waste my time on drinking tea I do not care for, nor will I waste my time on writing about it.
