4835 Tasting Notes
Yeah, I have a huge bunch of teas to be backlogging, I haven’t been on steepster much.
I almost want to start this tasting note off by saying “for a chamomile tisane this is pretty tasty” but that’s kind of dissing it and I don’t really want to do that … because it’s actually really tasty. I usually shy away from chamomile but the truth is I don’t hate chamomile as much as I seem to think I do. This is really nice with the lemon-y tones. It’s also very relaxing.

It looks like Peter Asher’s website is down … or perhaps they’re no longer maintaining an online presence … because their website is gone.
This is a really tasty chai though. Sweet, spicy, and with a nice balance. My first few sips – before I added the “latte” to my cup – I noticed that there was something “missing” in the chai … but it was not a bad “missing” if that makes sense. I liked the difference I was tasting, and it definitely tasted different. Then I realized … there’s no cinnamon in this chai! I love cinnamon, but, it’s kind of neat to have a chai that focuses on the other spices in a masala chai. It’s smoother without the cinnamon … I can really taste the clove and cardamom.
A really tasty chai … delicious as a latte. YUM!
Thank you TeaEqualsBliss for sending me some of this tisane. It is making a wonderful ‘good night’ tisane for me. Sweet, delicious, basil notes, herbaceous … and a light lemon-y note. I am kind of wishing there was a tad more lemon to this. It’s more like a sweet, creamy hint of lemon from the lemongrass, and I think that a stronger lemon note would be nice.
I see that Shanti Tea isn’t offering this one any longer, though, so I guess it doesn’t really matter! It’s enjoyable, regardless.
This morning, I woke up with a slight sore throat (my hubby has a bad case of a headcold so I’m sure that I’m coming down with it too) so to combat the sore throat, I decided to grab my “Kitchen Sink” breakfast tea which is a combination of small bits of black tea blends from all different companies and brew it, and then add some of my ginger/honey crystals to have a spicy hot soothing cuppa that did WONDERS on my throat. And it tasted good too. I’m glad my tastebuds haven’t been affected (yet) by the cold. Hopefully they won’t!
Thank you TeaEqualsBliss for sending me some of this tea. I really liked this Oolong blend. I like the contrast between cinnamon and mint, although the cinnamon definitely was more subdued than the minty taste.

Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me some of this chai! I love chai!
And I loved this chai! A very finely chopped CTC, but I think that this was not a bad thing, because it brought out all the flavors of the spices and the tea in a very good way. A very bold, delicious chai. I loved the spiciness of it. If you like chai, this is one I’d recommend!

Thank you TeaEqualsBliss for sending me a bit of this tea!
It’s a delightful Green tea! Sweet, vegetal – with a taste that falls somewhere between sweet grass and mild steamed veggies – a very invigorating, light, crisp cuppa!
