drank Chai Spice by Jade Monk
4833 tasting notes

While I do agree with my SororiTea Sister that these offerings from Jade Monk are different than I was initially expecting … I have come to actually enjoy these drink mixes. I just needed to get beyond the point that they really aren’t tea for someone who loves tea like those of us here on steepster – these are Matcha powder drinks for someone who wants the health benefits and energizing power of Matcha without actually tasting much of the matcha.

So, once I got past that, I was able to find these drinks to be very enjoyable. They aren’t like any Matcha that I typically keep stocked in my tea cupboard, but they aren’t supposed to be. They are energizing though, and I like that.

This particular offering from Jade Monk, this Chai Spice, it is a sweeter chai. The spices are cinnamon, clove and cardamom, and I think that this blend could have benefited with a contrast note of peppery ginger. These three spices together (cinnamon, clove, cardamom), along with the stevia and cane juice powder offer a sweet taste that is enjoyable and exotic.

I like it alright. It isn’t my favorite as far as chai goes, and it isn’t my favorite as far as matcha goes. But, as far as energy drinks go, I’d say it’s good.

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!
