Someone on Steepster recommended mixing this Maharaja Chai Oolong with Zingiber Ginger Coconut Rooibos (both by Teavana), so I gave that a shot today. I used 1 tsp of each and added about 1/2 tsp of rock sugar to the leaves. I steeped for 4-5 minutes.

What an interesting combination! Sometimes one of the flavors would be stronger than the other, but other sips had an interesting mixture of both: The ginger would be quite strong first, and as it faded the spiciness from the oolong took center stage. They also balanced each other out, neither being too intense. (For people who think the Maharaja Chai is too spicy, the ginger rooibos lessened it in a nice way.)

I think I prefer these teas separately, but I enjoyed mixing them. I also resteeped the leaves (for a long time… maybe 8 minutes, or even more) and it still tasted good, but definitely less intense.

Bio

I started drinking loose leaf tea in December 2011. I usually use Teavana’s Perfect TeaMaker at home, and their Remi Mug at work. Some day I would like to have a cast iron set… a red one with dragons!
