drank Apple-Vanilla White Chai by 52teas
902 tasting notes

Recently, I’ve become a fan of chais, after avoiding them for years. I used to go without tea if all that was available was a chai blend. Meghann sent me a sample of Frank’s Vanilla Bean Cheesecake Chai a while back, and I’ve pretty much been trying every chai since (though I really, really like the Vanilla Bean Cheesecake Chai and think a decaf version would be awesome…).

Meghann tucked a sample of this into my box for me to try. Since I’m fairly certain I’ll be placing a 52teas order this week, I wanted to try it out to see if I needed a pouch for myself.

And I do. The spices are front and center, but are by no means overpowering. The vanilla adds a smoothness to the blend, and the apple a crispness. And I can still taste the white tea base. It’s both festive and soothing…gently waking me up (or is it lulling me back to sleep?). Yes, a pouch (or two) of this must be mine. Thanks, Meghann: best box of tea ever!

If the chocolate cheesecake chai is any indication… the decaf will be better for the vanilla bean cheesecake than the regular version! It is probably the only tea that I can say that about… with the chocolate cheesecake chai, I prefer the decaf!

Oh, I want it so bad in decaf…

Yay, I"m glad you are finding some more chai’s you like. They’re not ALL bad:) This one is good. I think it’s nearly time for another pouch for myself. Will have to see what comes of Franks TOTW this week first.

Bio

My love of tea started in 2001, whilst in an internship in London, England. I shared an office with a lovely man who would make me a cup of tea every morning without asking me if I even wanted it. I drink my tea neat now, because I’ve yet to find the sugar/milk combination that lives up to Pablo’s.

I drink any and all kinds of tea, and love trying new brands/varieties/flavors.
