Steepster Traveling Teabox Tea

It doesn’t have quite enough kick to be a chai. With all the rave reviews I was expecting something a bit more amazing. It is a nice spicy chocolate tea, but not something I am going to go out of my way to try. I am very glad I got the opportunity to give it a try via the teabox as I am not sure I would have been pleased to end up with an entire box of this tea. There are so many teas out there I want to try that i don’t want to be stuck with good tea, I want to only stock up on amazing tea.

Post-Steep Additives: none

I drink it w/ half as much water… maybe that would help? No, it is definitely not a chai, it’s not supposed to be. I wish it would just be chocolate + pu erh.

SoccerMom

Hmmm and I have this as one of my next purchases. I’m glad you tried it before as we seem to have a very similar taste in tea.

LiberTEAS

I like this one too, which surprised me a lot because normally I don’t care for pu-erh.

Cofftea

LiberTEAS, I agree- I am not a cooked pu erh fan (but LOVE raw pu erh), but I’m completely in love w/ this one so I can’t wait to try other flavored cooked pu erhs.

Bio

I love caffeine! I prefer tea to coffee. I prefer my flavors to be in your face, not subtle. I plan to use this blog to keep track of the teas I have tried.

I get my daily dose of caffeine from Starbucks (Grande soy no water chai latte).
