drank Red Hot Cinnamon Chai by 52teas
4231 tasting notes

Well, I’m not going to rate this, because I made a latte and as I was busy teaching my youngest daughter how to cook eggs while making this cup, I didn’t really have the ability to focus on what I was doing with this tea as I was preparing it. So, the fact that it tastes like a typical chai to me may or may not be due to the tea … it may have something to do with the fact that I wasn’t really paying attention to what i was doing.

So, following that disclaimer, here is what I think about this cup of chai:

This tastes like chai. It doesn’t really taste like an amplified cinnamon version of chai – at least, not with the way it’s been prepared. It is warming and absolutely delicious as a latte, but I suspect that the addition of the steamed milk has softened the cinnamon’s impact somewhat. It’s yummy like this, but I do look forward to trying it straight up so that I can properly evaluate the tea on its merits.

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I also review teas for the Tea Review Blog:

In addition to my passion for tea, I am also a mixed media/altered arts artist. You can see some of my art here: http://eccentricpastiche.blogspot.com

I am also a self-proclaimed foodie. I review local restaurants and the food I buy online here: http://hungryinportland.wordpress.com


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 here: http://liberteas.teatra.de/ I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. I usually post at least one or two sampler boxes per month, though, so 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.
