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.

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!
