This is a lovely chai. It may be because it’s been a while (at least a week if not longer) since I’ve had a chai, but this is really tasting so very good to me right now. The spices are not overwhelming, and I like that the cinnamon and ginger are pretty much in check here. They aren’t overpowering, in fact, I’d say that the cardamom and cloves are stronger in flavor than either the cinnamon or ginger. The anise gives it a gentle sweetness in the background. This would be a good chai for even those who dislike anise, as it is not a strong presence here, and the anise seems to meld very well with the other flavors.

The black tea is equally as prominent as the spices, and it has a pleasantly smooth, rich tone to it.

Overall, a very pleasing cup. I drank this without milk, and just a wee bit (a half a teaspoon) of turbinado sugar, which helped to enhance the spices but didn’t make it overly sweet. Very nice.

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I no longer write for the SororiTea Sisters but I am still the admin for the blog.


The reason I’m no longer writing for SororiTea Sisters is because I am now the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas:


I’ll still be posting occasional reviews on teas here on Steepster, mostly backlogged reviews because I’m way behind on getting reviews posted. That’s why I’m keeping two accounts active at the current time – so that I can get those backlogged reviews posted.


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, which is why I was very excited to be the Mad Tea Artist of 52Teas!
