Tastes like a warm candied (caramel) apple, minus the sugar. I quite enjoy it, though it doesn’t feel like I’m drinking tea.

drank Kashmir Tchai by Kusmi Tea

It’s chai. Most reviews and such I saw online said it was radically different than a run-of-the-mill chai, but it simply isn’t. It tastes about on par with chais I can get far cheaper, so I shan’t be purchasing it again.

Not terrible, not even bad. Just uneventful. I expected more, but perhaps that’s due to reading up on it before trying it.

A weak Earl Grey, with lemon and other citrus. Move along. Nothing to see here. Probably a fine cuppa for those who want more of a citrus note to their Earl Grey, but I’m all about big, bold, boastful bergamot.

Spices. Nuttiness. Warmth. Autumn in a glass. I love this tea, especially when it’s cold outside. I couldn’t see myself enjoying it in a warmer climate or during the summer. It tastes like sitting by a fire.

Very mellow, the taste lulls me to sleep so I often drink it in the evening. The smell of the unsteeped tea is reminiscent of Ribena crossed with a pharmacy’s perfume aisle, but as soon as the leaves are removed the scent mellows out, and matches the taste.

A weaker darjeeling, almost a green flavour. Overpriced, likely wouldn’t purchase again. I did enjoy it though, and will savour each cup I drink—if only because it would be too fiscally irresponsible to spend so much on it again.

Tough to make properly, but well worth it. Steep it too long and the black tea takes over. Too short a steeping time will leave it tasting like little more than weak green tea. If you can hit that sweet spot somewhere in the middle, it’s a well-rounded and interesting cuppa.

Surprisingly orangetastic. I’m not a fan of herbals usually, but this was pretty rockin’. Like warm orange juice, but in a good way.

Fantastically strong jasmine flavour. If you only like a hint of jasmine, I’d look somewhere else.

Sweet! Too sweet, actually. I like it, but it nearly tastes like heated juice. Literally not my cup of tea.
