433 Tasting Notes
The citrus (lime) in this reminds me of cleaning products, which doesn’t do much for the appeal of this tea. Not much to write about in the taste department either, unfortunately. Last bag of this (from a variety pack), and I won’t be repurchasing!
I still don’t have much to say about this blend in general, but today it made for a decent morning cup of tea so I was pleasantly surprised. I’m completely exhausted after waking up almost an hour early thanks to daylight savings (bitter) so maybe my taste buds weren’t awake yet either.
It makes me sad that I’m still the only one on here who has tried this (unless some of y’all are drinking it and just haven’t reviewed it yet—?)! It’s so full of awesome spicy chai goodness, I just want to spread the love! I had it again this past weekend at my favourite local restaurant (The Walnut Cafe in Boulder, Colorado)… every time I eat there, I tell myself, “okay, you don’t need a chai—don’t order the chai!” but then I do. Every time. I just can’t help it! I haven’t yet let myself buy the concentrate to keep at home because A) it’s pricy and B) the last thing I need is complete access to chai any time of day or night. I’ll gain 25 pounds in no time! ;)
When I noticed this tea was getting harder to find in my area, I bought a couple of boxes. Not too long after that the magic kind of faded and I just don’t love this tea that much any more. I still enjoy it when I’m in the mood for a very “fruity” tea but honestly that’s not very frequently. There’s nothing wrong with this blend, per se, but I think my tastes have just changed over the last couple of years.
I pulled this out today and noticed that I still have quite a bit to get through so I might donate it to work so that I get through it a bit faster than just drinking it all by myself. I accidently steeped it a tad too long, but it didn’t get bitter so that was a nice bonus! This blend definitely makes me think of summer and it’s in the 60s today so it was a good match. :)
