Another horrible-feeling-stomach day today, so I had to pull out this tea. It really helps (along with Sprite Zero)… usually “Tension Tamer” tea is my bad-stomach-go-to, but I forgot to restock that, so CCL fills in nicely.

Aww..I hope you feel better soon! :(

The past two hot chai lattes that I’ve gotten at Starbucks have tasted amazing. I’m not sure what they’ve been doing differently, but two big thumbs up from me!

Even though I don’t necessarily think this is the greatest tea in general, every time I drink it I appreciate the uniqueness of it. It’s just really nice to have something so different once in a while. I steeped it for a long time today and there was no bitterness or weird strong notes… just decent fruity black tea with a background of rose and tiniest hint of vanilla.

May I ask where you found this tea at? I’ve been looking everywhere for it, and can’t find it anywhere near me.

Alannah

I got it at the very end of last year so I’m not sure if it’s seasonal or not (the box design has a kind of “gift box” design on it too), but I got it at a market called Sprouts here in Colorado. I don’t know if Sprouts is a big chain but it’s kind of like a much smaller Whole Foods/Sunflower Market type place.

Jaime

I’ve never heard of Sprouts, but will google and see if one’s anywhere near me. I’ll keep looking for it; I may have to cave and make an online order.

Jaime

Oh, and thanks for the info!

Alannah

I hope you can find it… I will be looking for another box myself in another month or two, and if I see it here I can easily pick one up for you! Let me know if you have any luck!

Jaime

Thank you so much!! That’s so great of you.

Alannah

I went and looked today, and they didn’t have any… I will start looking more frequently toward the holidays though! No problem, I am curious if it will reappear too!

Jaime

I was just going to purchase from CS’s website…it’s been discontinued.

Okay, I’m drinking this as I write about it so I can hopefully do a better job this time. I don’t get any coconut OR macadamia flavour from this, and no sweetness at all. There’s a definite taste to it, but I guess I can’t recognize what that is, so I can’t put a name on it. I brewed this pretty strong this go ‘round and it didn’t get bitter, but it made that taste even “louder” so to speak. I guess one word to describe this tea is weird. I can’t really describe it and I don’t really love it, but it’s different.

Wanted a second cup today (I think I was trying to be hopeful that it might rain and cool down since the sky is all grey), so this was the pick. Mediocre and boring, but it does the trick for caffeine content.

Bio

I’m a 41-year-old vegetarian zen witch who is obsessed with tea, music, beer, psychology (and many other things)! I really dislike herbal teas and will mostly only drink black with the occasional green and white mixed in from time to time. I have two huge cabinets full of tea that I will probably never be able to use up—it’s a constant battle to keep myself from buying more! Every time I travel, I come home with a bunch of new teas to try. I don’t post on here as often since I’m really trying to keep my collection in check and haven’t been trying as many new blends as I once did.
