drank Samurai Chai Mate by Teavana
9 tasting notes

I picked a few ounces of this up at my local Teavana store last weekend as I love both chai and mate teas. I decided to give it a try this morning.
To begin with, the scent of the dried mixture is amazing. I loved the spicy aroma. Even the tea steeping was quite intoxicating.
I used just a touch of rock sugar and a bit of coconut milk creamer. The first few sips were quite delicious, but I must admit that the clove and cinnamon almost became overwhelming for me. Eventually, that was all I could taste and they were quite overpowering.

I will give it another try, because the initial flavors were so good, so we’ll see.

I did use only 1 tsp instead of the recommended 1 1/2. I’m glad, because I think 1 1/2 tsp would have been very overwhelming.

Bio

I’ve always loved tea, but usually picked coffee when given the choice. Somehow, I fell into a Teavana store and the rest was history.
I am still in the beginning phase of collecting teas, but so far, I’m loving it!
