1114 Tasting Notes
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!
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.
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.
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
