Chai Time! Now that autumn is officially here for me – it’s wet and cold outside, which means it’s the perfect time for warm, spicy chai inside.

This is a really nice chai. The black tea base is a little weak if it were to be compared to some chai blends that I’ve tried, but, the combination of spices makes up for it. I love the vanilla here, it negates the need to add milk to make this a latte, it’s sort of like a built-in latte without milk. And I think that milk here might weaken the flavors a bit rather than enhance them. But it’s all good because that vanilla is giving this the latte-ish kind of taste that I want.

The spices are nicely blended. The cinnamon, ginger, and pepper are balanced out with the cardamom and cloves and anise. The anise gives a hint of licorice-y flavor that melds together into the unified spice tones … it doesn’t taste “licorice-y” although I can taste the note there. I like the way it all comes together.

Very enjoyable.

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.
