4823 Tasting Notes
Wow! I really like this rooibos blend! One of the best rooibos chai blends that I’ve tasted in a long time. Very comforting and warming.
I am imagining that it would be very good as a latte, but to be honest, I am so enjoying it without the milk or cream that I don’t see the need to try it that way. Everything comes together very well. I noticed one of the tasting notes on this tisane said that it tasted like spice cake, and I can really see that comparison. The nutty flavor of the rooibos ties in well with the spice cake comparison, too.
This is sweet, warm, and yummy!
Just finishing up a cup of this now. I am finding this tea to be particularly comforting and soothing after a spicy meal at dinner time. Tummy was starting to feel a little upset, but this tisane calmed it right down… Because of that, I have to give it a few more points!
Yes, this is my first cup of the day. I was up very late last night, so as soon as I got my little one off to school, I crashed!
Anyway… what a lovely, beautiful Assam! The tips are indeed golden and remind me a bit of a golden tip Yunnan, but it doesn’t taste like it. The flavor is so rich with an underlying tone of honey-caramel. Malty. Smooth. SO smooth. Absolutely delicious and just what I needed to get myself going today.
I really love this Assam!
I quickly polished off that Coconut Chai, and now I am going to enjoy a cup of Hazelnut Truffle (my last pyramid of this! Bummer… it will be missed!) and watch a little bit of television while the kids are busy doing other things…

This is probably one of my favorites from Zhena’s, and I just noticed that they have a new green coconut chai… may have to look for it the next time I’m in Whole Foods!
This is yummy. I like that it has a latte feel to it without adding milk – the coconut makes it creamy and rich tasting. Delicious, warm, spicy… and warming me up on this cold afternoon!
Thanks to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me this tea!
I tend to have my doubts when I encounter an herbal breakfast blend/morning blend, because, well, there’s no caffeine in them herbs! How is it going to wake me up?
But this nice. If you don’t like mint, though, this isn’t going to be the morning herbal for you, because it is a strong spearmint flavor. The citrus is a nice flavor and rounds out the mint nicely, but the mint is still quite strong. Fortunately, I don’t have a problem with that. I’m just happy there’s no hibiscus in this!
A nice mint/citrus blend, tastes minty but not medicinal. Decent.
