OK… I was so excited to receive this tea… not because of the tea, per se, but because of the location of the tea room! It is in Portland on 23rd Ave! YAY! My two favorite areas of Portland are 23rd Ave and Alberta Street. These two streets have a charm all their own… they haven’t been Wal-Mart-ed or Target-ed. They have a very cool vibe about them.

But lately what has made Alberta Street stand out for me is that they have Townshend’s Tea Shop… but now, I’ve learned of Tea Chai Te on 23rd Ave! So… now, when I go to Portland… which street to choose??? Sure… Alberta has Collage (my favorite art supply store), but, 23rd has Paper Source (an awesome paper store). Plus, 23rd St. has Moonstruck Chocolate (OMG)… but then, Alberta has the Radio Room and an awesome vegan bakery.

But… for now, I will get back to this tea.

This is a really delicious chai blend – Spicy deliciousness, but with a nice sweetness from the citrus and the star anise. I like the little bit of licorice-like taste in the finish. This is so warm and comforting on a cold day like this. Vigorous and wonderful!

Preparation

As this tea cools a little, the peppery notes of the ginger and pepper seem to pop and linger in the aftertaste. It’s nice – especially if you like ginger (which I do!)

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!
