I sweetened this with a teaspoon of honey and added lots of milk. It’s not a traditional chai but it tasted delicious all the same.

Made a pot of this for my boyfriend and I this morning and it’s as good as ever. This is rapidly becoming my favorite tea and the non-tea-drinking boyfriend-creature likes it too. :D

Hmm, I can really taste the lemon grass today for some reason, maybe because I added less milk than usual.

ZOMG this stuff is awesome! The spices were less intense or bitter than with the traditional chai and the coconut flavour was well developped, the hint of citrus from the lemongrass making it stand out even more. This is on its way to becoming my new favorite tea.

This tea smells great. As soon as the hot water hit the tea, I could immediately smell it from a few feet away.

I had two cups of this (I tend to make at least two cups at a time whenever I make tea).

With the first, I was actually eating some indian food (Chicken Tika Masala and Whole Wheat Naan). The spices seem to overpower the actual black tea. Very distinctive cinnamon taste. Can’t say I know what cardamon tastes like, so I don’t know how much of a presence it made.

I also tried it with milk (fat free though, since that is all I have at the moment). Seemed to smooth the flavor a bit, although regular milk may work better. I don’t usually put milk in my tea though, so I don’t know if that is the case.

One thing I noticed, is that the flavor seemed to dull as the tea cooled off.

Pretty good for when I want some black tea, but don’t quite want it to taste like a black tea.

Good taste, but nasty aftertaste. I’m gonna have to make another cup to make sure I didn’t oversteep.

I made this by cold brewing it! Tastes delicious iced, especially on a warm day. The scent is light, but I can still smell the apricot.

Good tea. Smooth and tasty without being overly sweet or rich. Good dessert tea that isn’t heavy.

Woody, with what another taster described as a little briskness. I agree! Tasty.

I had this with milk this morning. Since I’ve pretty much already said all that there is to say about this tea, you can go back and read my past tasting notes.

It’s been awhile since I had this. Its canister seems better at staying full than say Thai Chai for some reason… ;)

I do wonder why =P

I take it this is not Earl Grey Bravo but Earl Grey Yukko. I’ve never had it, so I’m tasting vicariously through you two.

My boyfriend certainly thinks so! Me, I don’t mind it, but it’s a bit too heavy on the bergamot for me.

I normally drink this tea with milk, but with my cold I figured it might be best to skip that, so I just drank it plain with a teaspoon of honey. Even after a relatively short steeping time and added sweetener it has a pretty astringent bite to it that left a bit of a dry taste in my mouth, so I can see why many people don’t like this tea.

Boiling 3 min, 45 sec

Yeah I’m not too big on Earl Grey myself…there’s sooo many other great options. I think I just really dislike bergamot and the astringency…

Urgh, it’s too early and the boyfriend is being pesky. Hopefully this tea will make me feel a bit more lively.
