drank French Vanilla Chai by Twinings
1090 tasting notes

I’m usually unimpressed with Twinings. This may be the favorite I’ve tried from Twinings but ONLY because it is a chai tea. But the black tea here is weak. The cinnamon is stronger, but it doesn’t even seem like a real cinnamon. And the ingredients even list an ‘artificial vanilla’. What does that mean? There isn’t much vanilla here anyway. And it leaves sort of a starchy filmy taste in my mouth! There is another odd flavor too.

I agree with everything you’ve said here. Their other chais; however, are amazing!

I appreciate that you’re always reading and commenting on my reviews, though I don’t expect that! I use steepster basically as the tea extension of my brain, so that I can remember tea related things. :D

Hi! I love tea and trying new ones – it adds a bit of variety to my day! Books, music, TV & movies are my thing… and tea, of course.

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!
