After not posting on here for quite a while, thought I’d get back to it… so here we go again. Starting off with a favorite tea, it’s bed time, and I need a cup of tea right now.

Backlog:

First Sniff – Nice elements of sweetness. A bit of a grain and grass, smells fresh and lovely.

First Sip – I ordered this one with honey at The Loose Teas and there was way too much honey for my taste, it was so sweet the tea was almost lost. This is a nice fresh grassy tea that is wonderful to sip on. Since I can’t judge this one based on what the tea would be like with the amount of honey I like in my tea I’m going to give it about a 78

Preparation
185 °F / 85 °C 3 min, 30 sec

First Sniff – Smells sweet and you can definitely tell it has cinnamon in it. It has a slight bitter smell to it as well, I can’t quite figure it out… it’s an interesting first sniff.

Preparation – Added a bit of honey.

First Sip – Tastes a bit like constant comment, just with a thicker pallet. It’s almost a little syrupy. It’s an odd combination of citrus and cinnamon. This is an oolong based tea, but the oolong was not present at all. I don’t know what to make of this tea. It’s good, just not as good as other teas like it. I’d give it a 5/10.

Preparation
195 °F / 90 °C 3 min, 15 sec

A note to start – Do not think of this tea as a normal chai, it is not a normal a chai, it is a lighter green tea based chai that is delightful in it’s own right.

Steeping the tea – This tea smells wonderful! My entire bedroom smells like sweet spiced tea. It’s amazing.

Preparation – A little bit of steamed milk and some honey.

First sip – Sweet, spicy, citrusy. The honey really goes well with this tea, it accents the spiced flavor but doesn’t add the raw sweetness the sugar does.

This tea is wonderful, it’s complex and spicy with a touch of brightness from the green tea. Unlike a black tea based chai it is light and citrusy and doesn’t have a bold caffeinated feeling like I get from darker chai. The sweetness of the ginger and cardamom hang in your mouth for a while after you sip it down. Overall, it’s a very nice tea with a really wonderful flavor. I feel like I could drink this right before bed as well.

I’ve been having a bit of a stressful and busy week and I just got this tea from a trade and it is wonderful. It has made my day better.

First sip – Very sweet and very fruity. It was a bit more pungent than I was expecting.

This a nice smooth tea with a great vanilla flavor and a citrusy brightness. It also has a bit of a caramel flavor and a nice undertone of the tea that comes out on the end of the sip. This tea is wonderful right after it brews and lightens up a bit as it cools. Overall this is a great tea.

First sip – Nice balance of chamomile and other herbal elements.

This tea is a wonderful herbal tea with a nice sweetness and a good balance of mint and vanilla. It also has a great chamomile taste that is not bitter, but sweet and blends well with the herbal elements of this tea.

Like others have said this tea looks really strange in the bag, but once it brews it turns into a great tea.

Overall, it’s a great tea that I will enjoy many cups of.

1st taste – Nice and grassy but I get a little bit of a dirt taste to this that’s not so pleasant. This tea smells nice but not very sweet.

I added honey to this tea and I thought it was much better with a little bit of sweetness.

This tea seems very fine and seems like a great tea, it’s just not my favorite.
