drank Vanilla Chai by Bigelow
101 tasting notes

I bought this tea because my nephew Brennan said it was good and he thought I would like it. I was eager to cup this despite it being at least partially artificially flavored.

In my first cup I added a little skim milk. To be honest, even the small amount of milk seemed to hide flavors, although I thought I tasted vanilla and other Chai spices. My second cup was steeped without milk, per info below. I did taste a decent black tea base, vanilla & cinnamon, and perhaps cardamon in the background.

It was a decent cup of tea, but I did taste the artificial flavoring in this blend and it really distracted me, & disappointed me-even though I was expecting it. :// Hopefully, this tea will be better cold brewed.

This is the tea my nephew liked. It’s a decent tea. I plan on cold brewing it tonight, and maybe post another cold brew review this weekend or early next week.

Haha, I have a ton of that stuff somewhere I don’t know what to do with. Even back before I discovered loose tea it was too artificially-flavored for my liking. I never thought to try cold-brewing it though, hm.

I’ve read a lot of your reviews and think you’re an excellent writer. Love the way you write of tea and it’s connections in your life. Brought back some memories of mine. Wish you were still around posting.
