Thank you to my SororiTea Sister, TeaEqualsBliss, for sending me a sampling of this chai.

I’m in agreement with TeaEqualsBliss … this is really one of the least flavorful chai blends I’ve ever tasted. I also do get the pumpkin-y taste that she mentioned … kind of weird for a chai that doesn’t call itself a pumpkin chai, but, whatever…

The black tea base is kind of blah. Not really strong, not really much of anything… it’s just kind of weird. I taste some fruit notes in the background. The spices are really kind of boring. I taste ginger and fennel, and other than that, it’s just really kind of a boring tea … which is in itself rather odd to me, because it is also quite unlike any tea I’ve had before, so it’s boring yet unusual, which seems an odd combination to me. Lackluster. Not bad … really, just very dull and flat and uninteresting.

Really … the only good thing about this tea is that I’m listening to Axl sing right now. I do love that man’s voice. :)

TeaEqualsBliss

Yup! I had a rough time with this one, too!

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.
