8 Tasting Notes

drank Original Blend by Red Rose

I’m staying with family while house hunting, and this is my brother-in-law-to-be’s favorite tea. It’s got a nice, delicate flavor that works well when brewed my usual way—very strong, with sugar and milk added. This is a good standby tea, though I don’t think I’ll buy it for myself. I prefer my morning tea to be a bit more robust.

My soon-to-be-sister-in-law gave us a box of this at New Years, when I was coming down with a nasty cold. Her family drinks it when they’re sick, so I thought I’d give it a whirl. I’ve never been a big fan of rooibos, so I was a bit hesitant, but I finally caved and made myself a cup.

It’s amazingly fragrant and sweet enough that I don’t need to add any kind of sweetener. I was very surprised that I love the flavor; it’s heavy on the cinnamon, which is great. It makes my throat tingle a little as it goes down. If you like spicy teas, this is a great one.

drank Chai Spice by Stash Tea Company

I go back and forth with Tazo’s chai, but I think this is my favorite right now. It’s spicy but thankfully doesn’t have a very strong anise flavor. I hate anything that tastes like licorice, so chai blends with lots of anise make me gag.

I brew this one for about five minutes and then drink it with lots of milk.

Because this is stronger than their English Breakfast blend, I drink this on mornings where I need an extra kick. Silly, I know, because it doesn’t have more caffeine, but I like my little illusions. I always drink this tea with milk; it smooths out the stronger tannin flavor and makes it delicious.

This is my usual morning tea. I drink a big mug with one Splenda and a splash of milk, steeped about five minutes.
