I ordered this sample, I had heard some good things about this chai so I needed to find out for myself!

I split the brewed tea into two different cups so that I could have one for tasting without any additions and one for tasting as a latte.

Without Additions: Well, as most of you probably know, I’m pretty biased when it comes to chai, as I do believe that my own chai is the best ever. That being said, this chai lacks something. I was reading the label on the sample (which, may I say, I do have a tremendous appreciation for – the labels on these samples are very comprehensive), and it suggests adding a tbsp. of “your favorite black tea” – which suggests to me that this tea lacks a certain “umph” – and it does. The body of this tea – the base – seems relatively thin.

The spices, on the other hand, are delightful. Not too spicy, with a certain sweetness to it that I’m quite enjoying. This would really be an excellent masala chai if it had a stronger black tea base.

With honey and steamed milk: It is quite good as a latte, although, again, it suffers from a thin tea taste. The milk and honey do give it a little more consistency and a nice texture on the palate, as well as bring out some of the delicious spices. But the tea is still dreadfully thin on taste.

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!
