Light, lovely and fruity. I don’t know if I’ll go out of my way to get this in the future, however it’s a lovely, light blend that’s very flavorful and delicious.

Kinda, sorta surprised I had to add this Steepster. Isn’t this a novel idea, a white chai? I’d think Steepsterites would jump on it!

Anyway. I added it, because I’m drinking it, thanks to a lovely surprise gift from Suziqzer. It’s a light, creamy blend, with a kick of spice from the red peppercorns, I believe. It’s a nice blend, a bit surprising really, as I’d never considered using a white for a chai… didn’t think the tea could hold up such bold flavors. I do like it though!

Flavors: Peppercorn

Preparation
175 °F / 79 °C 2 min, 30 sec 3 tsp 12 OZ / 354 ML

Hm. Liked this one less than I remember (loving it), however it was still gone before I realized it. I’ve got it on my wishlist in case I ever make another H&S order.

drank Premium Chai by Butiki Teas

I loved this sample so much that I ordered a whack of it, and while it’s still creamy and delicious just straight, it’s not as…. amazing? as I remember it to be. Still really, really tasty though!

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 2 min, 15 sec 2 tsp 12 OZ / 354 ML

drank Almond Dream by Souvia

Hm. Oversteeping = more apple, less apple crumble. Boo me. I’ll know for next time.

Oops… Over steeping happens too often for me too. Too many distractions at home!

drank Chai Spice by Verdant Tea

A lovely blend of spices to make an unusual yet very pleasant cup of chai. Interestingly, there are goji berries in this, which aren’t listed in the ingredients list here. Odd.

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 3 min, 0 sec 2 tsp 12 OZ / 354 ML

drank Pink Lemonade by DAVIDsTEA
1114 tasting notes

Bah. I should know better than to buy iced teas from DAVIDs anymore.. I’ve yet to be pleased with these blends. Regardless, I bought it, made it for my kids, and they had a few glasses before refusing to have any more. So… I had a glass tonight. Yep, I get it. It’s super hibiscus tart unless you over-sweeten it, and there’s little else to it.

Preparation
Iced 8 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML
Suziqzer

Bummer..

I too have regrets about having bought this one. We bought 50 gr last year around this time (I know because it was Pride weekend) and we still have a couple of cups left to finish off.

drank Choc Chip Chai by T2
1114 tasting notes

This smells strongly of cardamom, and tastes mostly of it as well. While I like cardamom, it makes the tea too drying for me, way too drying. Zero chocolate as well, which really blows considering T2’s other flavored blends are quite yummy.

As I may have mixed this poorly before steeping, I’ll try again and leave the rating off for now.

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 2 min, 30 sec 2 tsp 12 OZ / 354 ML

drank Bailin Gongfu Black Tea by Teavivre
1114 tasting notes

Wowza, the super small, curled leaves kinda surprised me. Drinking it reminds me of a lighter, more caramel and less chocolate version of Laoshan Black, with a hint of honey. It’s quite lovely, and I may just need to add this to my wishlist to get more at some point. As it stands, it was a freebie sample that Teavivre sent me (thank you!) and I’m sharing the rest with someone that I think might enjoy it just as much.

Flavors: Caramel, Honey

Preparation
195 °F / 90 °C 2 min, 0 sec 2 tsp 12 OZ / 354 ML

Profile

Bio

Teaholic! Currently loving flavored blacks, greens, whites and rooibos blends, straight blacks and greens, and have a long-standing adoration for herbals/medicinals. Dessert teas top my list along with anything cocoa-y (like Laoshan Black, any of Verdant’s chai’s and Whispering Pines’ Mint Chocolate Chip). Missing living near a tea shoppe that offers a lot of options; other than DAVIDs a few blocks away, I’m buying most of my stuff online. Still, I have more than two cupboards devoted to tea, and a ridiculous amount of it!

In addition to loving tea, I’m a dating columnist, single mom, nerd, and avid knitter. I read way too much, type even more, and spend my ‘free’ time either running, swinging kettlebells, or hanging with friends.

I love tea swaps, and will gladly swap anything I have that I have enough of to share.

Allergies: Strawberries and all grains. I’m having a mild allergic reaction to both lavender and some roses in tea, and thus I’m avoiding these for now as well. I also avoid sugar and Splenda where possible.
