WOAH .. this one packs a PUNCH! Okay so it says just a “touch” of cayenne pepper but ummm it seemed like a lot to me and I do love cayenne. Don’t get me wrong however, it was not TOO much – just more than I expected. I did brew this for the full 5 minutes a chai typically calls for – but I would suggest 3 to 4 minutes and that is what I will do next time. It was very strong in flavor all the way around and I do appreciate a strong flavor but it was just a bit too much. Now I did add milk and some sugar and it was wonderful – the way you would get a chai if you went out but far far better of course! :)
The smell in the bag is amazing – sweet, spicy, nutty, yummm and the brew smells the same. This is one to be reckoned with and I see why they put it under “man teas” lol but this gal loves it! Not for the weak. This is one I will have to be in the mood for but then again I am often in the mood for a chai and this is a GREAT chai!

Oh man. I have GOT to pick this up for my roommate! She’s a cayenne addict, and loves chai. Yet another reason for me to make a 52teas order (it’s from there, right?)

Azzrian

Its from their sister site – but yes same company :)
LOL if she is a cayenne addict she is going to LOVE LOVE LOVE this!

TeaBrat

I like cayenne too, I should get some. :)

Kittenna

Oh man, I’ve now compiled a $90 order of teas I want from 52teas! Ack! But I’ll hold out and wait until my sample box from LiberTEAS arrives in case she sends me a sample of one of them.

Azzrian

ROFL! how about you skim it down to a 52 dollar order! :)

Kittenna

Hahaha, at $9 a pop the closest I could get would be $54. But I’d really prefer to sample most of the teas first before committing to 1-2oz. We’ll see! March tea budget is already WAY blown through, and I’m awaiting tea in some form from 6 different people/companies right now :D

Azzrian

Woo hooo – its addicting isn’t it! I am dying to order from two places right now but I need to save what little money I have left for BILLS and FOOD lol.

Kittenna

Yes, I’m in a tricky situation of being a student on a scholarship who gets paid (diddly squat) in a lump sum every 4 months. Yes…. EVERY FOUR MONTHS. It’s terrible. So right now I’m doing alright, but talk to me again in mid-April :|

Azzrian

LOL I complain about only being paid once every month. Hey congrats on the scholarship though! :)

Kittenna

Haha thanks. Makes my financial situation a tad more manageable :)

Bio

Most of my reviews will be “snippits” of full reviews that can be found at http://sororiteasisters.com/
Posted every evening at 6 EST.
I usually try to post the exact date that the full reviews will post however sometimes post dates need changed so it may not always be correct. Generally the dates are correct however.

About Me:

Most of my reviews, although not all, will be quite favorable of the tea. This is not because all tea is excellent, but more so because I generally will not waste my time on an inferior tea. If I do not care for a tea I won’t continue to drink it let alone spend time reviewing it. If you see a review by me you basically know it is a quality tea. Granted it may not suit your specific taste buds, we all like different things, but as for a tea on the whole it is a good one, from a good company.

I am a spiritual advisor by profession.
I have two “young adult” children.
Four cats and three dogs.

Some of my hobbies include gardening, essential oil therapy, natural perfumery with essential oils, and cooking.

I look for complexity overall in any tea, dimensions to the flavors.

I believe tea should evoke a feeling, thought, emotion, or attitude.

I enjoy most all oolongs, blacks, whites, and greens.

I always love to try a good yellow tea.

I favor unadulterated teas but I do have my longings for a good flavored tea now and then so I don’t rule them out by any means!

I enjoy green rooibos don not like red rooibos.
