drank White Masala Chai by Yogic Chai

Finishing up the last of this in my cupboard.

This tea really surprised me. I wasn’t expecting much from a white chai, because white tea is so delicate, I figured the spices would completely overwhelm the flavor of the white tea. But I think that Yogic Chai did a really good balancing act here. The spices are very lively, but do not overwhelm the fresh, light taste of the white tea.

Here is a link to my full review of this tea on The Tea Review Blog:

Now would you add milk to it? I wonder how their new acai white chai is…

This one surprised me, too!

No, I didn’t add milk to it. I suppose you could, but I think it would overwhelm the white tea flavor. I did add honey (I always add honey to chai) which brings out some of the more delicate nuances of the spices. But no milk.

@cofftea – I am not a big fan of acai berry, so I’m not rushing to place an order for that one. If I place another order with them for something else, I might include it in the order, just for the sake of curiosity.

I sent you a few quick emails btw

malomorgen

takes some skill i assume to make chai with white tea without killing the white tea…

LiberTEAS

@malomorgen It definitely takes a careful balance with the flavors.

Cofftea

I agree malomorgen- milk w/ green chai is pushing it. I tried it once and it was pretty good, but I probably won’t do it again.

Bio

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.
