Alphakitty included this in the traveling tea box… thanks! This is another chai that has mostly black tea leaves. I feel like there should be a different name for chai that is only spices and then chai that is also mixed with black tea. After steeping a few minutes, the first sip that I tried had that flavor that I think is associated with…. and I could be wrong… there is like a flavor that comes from preserving the fruit in the Della Terra teas. I’ve noticed that in a couple of their apple blends, but not all of their apple blends. This one might be because that flavor is from the orange. But after the first sip that flavor is gone. I don’t think it’s terrible after that. A nice mix of orange, sweet cinnamon, and coffee beans. If I’m right though (and I really have no idea) Della Terra should really get rid of that preservative flavor. I know they can because it seems like half their apple teas have it and half do not. I’m not sure with the other teas. I’m up for trying any tea though, so I was happy to try this one.

Most of the teas listed in my cupboard are actually sample sizes. I don’t really have 2,000 ounces of tea around here! I was bored one day and found out that most of them have only one teaspoon left… maybe two. But I like keeping them in my cupboard list for reference to what I could be sipping. Usually, I write tasting notes once for each tea. I’m still drinking them, just not writing tasting notes each time!

My dislikes: hibiscus, ginger (unless in chai), charcoal type flavors

My ratings:
95-100 – Super awesome deliciousness favorites
80-95 – Also pretty delicious
65-80 – Pretty good
40-65 – Okay
1-40 – Probably won’t want to sip it again

I’m planning on being a Steepsterer as long as there IS a Steepster, so if you’re not hearing from me, that means something happened to my health… if you know what I mean. :D

Happy sipping!
