Another little tin from Art of Tea to try…

This is reminiscent of Teavana’s white chai and the white tea looks like a bai mudan to me. It’s a bit of an odd backdrop for the chai spices, which are quite strong and overpowering for the delicate white tea. I am getting a lot of star anise and clove. This is actually pretty tasty, especially if you add soymilk to make it kind of creamy and rich. It’s pretty good for the chilly and overcast weather we are having. Still, I think I prefer my chais made with black tea or rooibos.

So far I am not overly impressed with the Art of Tea, but I haven’t gotten anything horrible from them either.

Live in San Francisco, I’m a SINK (single income, no kids) and love the urban life, but traveling out to the middle of nowhere is always fun too.

I tend to not drink things I know I will hate so a lot of my tea ratings are on the higher side. Here’s my rating system, sorta

95-100 I love this tea and would like to keep it around
