Man this tea has a lot going on. Out of the myriad of flavors going on I mostly taste cinnamon and a roasty nuts. Has a red color to it that I assume comes from the beet.

Taste and smell is mostly cinnamon and tea, but it’s not overpowering. Smoother mouthfeel and taste than most of the other chais I’ve had. It reminds me a bit of a lot of christmas blends I’ve had. In latte form it’s good, and probably in my top 3 chai latte list. As it’s cooling I’m starting to taste more of the pepper.

Smell: All Berry.
Taste: This is totally reminding me of all of the berry bubble gum I loved as a kid, bringing me back in time. I don’t really taste any of the maple syrup in here, but then again I don’t feel like reaching for the sugar; this seems sufficiently sweet by itself. I don’t like many fruity flavored teas, but I would re-order this.

The peach flavor in here tastes and smells natural, which is a plus. They did a pretty good job on blending the flavors, nothing is too overpowering. I’m not usually a huge fruit-and-tea-mixed-together fan, but I could see myself making iced tea out of this in the Summertime.

Wow this smells fruity. It tastes mostly like peach, but also reminds me of mango. There is kind of a refreshing minty effect I’m getting on mouthfeel. It’s pretty popular with the people I’m drinking it with.

I’m not usually into coconut, but this sounded interesting, so I’m giving it a try.
I’m detecting the following:
pre-steep scent – coconut
Steeped scent – vanilla, coconut
Taste – coconut mostly, vanilla, and also something that reminds me of butterscotch. Very flavorful tea. I like it quite a bit more iced than hot.

I mostly detect clove with a little bit of cinnamon. I’m not sure if there is any orange rind in here or not, but I’m picking up hints of that as well. I’m not much of a chai person, but this is a worthy effort. It’s one of the rare chais I’ve preferred without milk.

I usually don’t care for chamomile tea, but this is pretty good. I’m getting tasting notes that remind me of apples, maybe honey. Lots of floral taste too (obviously).

Pretty roasty, earthy, and woody tasting. As it cools I’m getting some coffee like notes. A lot of times I like my teas cooler, but prefer this one nice and hot.

I’ve been drinking tea since I was a whipper-snapper, as a way of relaxing before bed. I ventured out from bagged, mass produced tea when I tried some loose leaf Earl Grey at the old man’s house years back. I’m still not too proud for the occasional bagged stuff, saving my snobbery for hard to find craft beer.

I gravitate towards Chinese black-tea varieties, Japanese greens, unflavored oolongs from wherever, and the occasional “I cant sleep” type of herbal teas. I signed up so I can keep track of the teas I’ve tried, and what I want to keep in my cupboard on the regular.
