drank Lemon Meringue Chai by 52teas
4449 tasting notes


OK, this seemed like a really unusual approach to a chai. But I was certainly excited to try it because I love Lemon Meringue pie … and I love chai! And I had every confidence that Frank could pull this off.

Unfortunately, I found myself just a little bit disappointed by this chai. I found myself more enchanted by the idea of a lemon meringue chai than the actual execution of it.

It was tasty enough, but I found the base to be a bit too harsh. I think it would have been better to utilize the black tea blend as a base and then maybe add some extra Assam rather than go straight up Assam.

There’s a nice level of spice … not too spicy. I like the lemon touch, but I wanted some vanilla in this to give it more of a creamy lemon taste … like the taste of the lemon curd in a lemon meringue. And the marshmallow seemed to be a little overwhelmed by it all.

It was alright, but not my favorite chai from 52Teas.

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.
