drank Chai Cola by Natural Brew
4227 tasting notes

Ever since Foodzie announced that there’d be chai cola in their “Movie Night” tasting box in February, I have been on a mission to find chai cola and try some (since I did not order the movie night box, I just had to go for the chocolate in the Valentine’s box instead).

Yesterday, I found some chai cola at our local New Seasons grocery store, and so it took less than a moment’s thought about putting it in my cart … I had to have some! And it is so good! I gave some to my oldest daughter yesterday and she says it tastes a lot like an old fashioned root beer … and I get that. It has that less refined, less commercial tasting taste to it, and I suspect it has a lot to do with the fact that it was micro-brewed.

Anyway… it’s really good. It doesn’t really taste of sarsaparilla like root beer does, instead it tastes sweet with lovely spice undertones, and a nice black tea flavor too. I was surprised to read that it’s a decaffeinated tea that they use for this … but it really is good and doesn’t taste decaffeinated to me. Not something I’d drink all the time as I’m not big on colas or sodas of any sort, but, I am glad that I made the purchase, if for no other reason than to calm my curiosity for it.

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.
