drank White Ayurvedic Chai by Teavana
15 tasting notes

I’ve had this tea for a few months (kept in a Teavana canister) as my aunt got it for me for my birthday, and I didn’t rush to try it since I’m usually not too fond of chai teas. Today, I thought I might as well give it a try.

The scent of the dry leaves is very spicy and you will notice the cinnamon right away. The scent almost made me not want to try it, since (as mentioned above) I usually only like flat green or white teas, but I did, and I must say, it wasn’t too bad!

I don’t think I steeped it long enough, because my cup doesn’t taste as strong as others on here have mentioned, but it DOES remind me of Redhot candies as someone else stated, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing.

I love white teas and I think it took away some of the harshness that comes with black chai teas (but, then again, the only black chai teas I have tasted were bagged teas, not loose-leaf). Overall I enjoyed this cup, it was light yet had a warm little kick to it, and I’m looking forward to brewing a second cup and experimenting with the time/heat/etc. :)

Bio

My name is Nicole (lots of people call me ‘Coles’ for short, which explains my nickname), I’m an 18 year old from a little town in Ohio who loves tea! :)

I’m basically your average broke-high-school-senior-who-will-be-going-to-college-soon-yet-still-insists-on-purchasing-tea kind of girl. ;) I’ve loved coffee since I was 13 (and still do), but tea is wonderful as well and I feel they serve different purposes.

If I’m tired or need a pick-me-up, I will turn to my sweetly prepared coffee (mm, love sweetener & creamer!); but if I’m just relaxing or simply enjoying life in all its beauty, tea seems to best suit my mood.

I’m still “new” to the tea world, trying to branch out of my white and green tea comfort zone into other loose-leaf teas in order to have a really fun experience exploring. This site is perfect, and I often read reviews and explore teas just for the fun of it. I’m hoping I can learn a lot here and meet some fellow tea-enthusiasts who are willing to help me on this journey!
