I got this awhile back from a buddy thank you. Now most of the time I do not like roobios unless the roobios is subtle, but I wanted to try this for the chocolate and the mint. Well this is decent and better then most roobios and I like the mint but the chocolate is just not strong enough and I can still taste the roobios too much. So this is decent to me.

This is rather spicy chai with a green tea base. I much prefer my chai with a strong black tea base. However, this is one of the better green rea options. This is quite spicy with cinnamon and ginger leading the way. The green tea base is still rather thin. If you are spice adverse, then avoid this one. If you like em spicy, then give this one a shot.

When I opened this tea, my mouth began to water! You can smell the terrific blend of masala spices as well as large dark Ceylong tea leaves. This is a terrific tea – the best Masala Chai I have tasted!

Wow is this tea spicy in a cinnamon goodness way. The green tea is hardly noticeable in this blend, but that is okay because there is so much sweet spicyness going on. I made this without additives to try it out. Pretty powerful for a green tea chai blend. Impressive. Thanks LauraR for the opportunity to sample this tea!

drank Cream Earl Grey by BourgeaTEA
558 tasting notes

I love bergamot scent, and love it in my black teas as Earl Grey. I’ve tried a few green Earl’s and been less than impressed….until now. I think the cream notes are what I needed to finally enjoy a green earl grey tea. The cream/vanilla flavor adds a smoothness to the flavor that lightens the bergamot and lets it just slip over my tongue. Much more of a silky feel with the creamy taste than I’ve experienced with other Green Earl Greys. And the bergamot is nice and mellow, enough to know it is still there, but not choking me with its perfume. Very nice.

Thanks again to Laura R for this great sample!

If you don’t like your teas flavored or blended with fruit, you’re not gonna like this one. It’s a Ceylon black (and a light one at that, my favorite) blended with actual raspberry pieces. And, boy, does it taste like it. You won’t be able to make out the floral Ceylon aspect in the dry or wet scent, but it comes through a bit in the taste – mostly on crisp texture. Being an impurist, I rather enjoyed it.

Just got it in the mail today! Smells delicious in the tin, even better once steeped! Followed the directions on the tin (1 tsp per cup, steeped for 5 min). Added 1/3 soy, and really liked it. I think next time I will use a tablespoon.

drank Feliz Cumpleaños by BourgeaTEA
69 tasting notes

I have typically avoided teas with sprinkles because I thought they would be gross. I actually didn’t find this to be gross but it didn’t knock my socks off either. The black tea is somewhat mild and flirts with bitterness. It is accompanied by a tasty caramel flavor that has vanilla undertones. I also tasted notes of maple and butterscotch at hotter temps. I suspect this might be good iced. The sprinkles melt during the infusion process this essentially comes pre-sweetened. They added the perfect amount of sweetness though.

I was looking at this tea but wasn’t too sure about it due to the sprinkles either.

drank Green Citrus by BourgeaTEA
190 tasting notes

MMMMM! That is all I can say for this tea right now. It tastes phenomenal. The aroma reminds me a bit of caramel sweetness,lemonade, and potpourri. I also smell an inkling of genmaicha, which smells a bit roasted and green. The taste is delicious. The flavor is green, and vegetal, but balances out the astringency from the tea and from the citrus very nicely. The tea glides smoothly in my mouth and leaves my mouth watering, craving more. I would definitely buy this one again, hands down.

This tea is unique. And it is strong. But, the beauty of this green tea chai is liberty the brewer can take with steeping time. The mild green tea base gives way to the spicy cinnamon of the chai flavor. I’m not your typical tea drinker (I go for coffee first) but I love the sweet/spicy/acidic flavors that go into this tea. Give it a try! I promise you have tasted nothing like it, but will be asking for another cup!

Rich, complex flavor. Although I am typically a coffee drinker, this tea has converted me. Not only is it smooth, it has a complexity of flavor that seems to marry perfectly together. When you take a sip, you can taste the time that the blender took to pick out each individual flavor. A+++ I’m ordering my second batch as we speak.

drank Decaf Raspberry by BourgeaTEA
2 tasting notes

The Decaf Raspberry is one of my favorite flavors I’ve tasted in a tea. This tea is especially great when I want something sweet but don’t want any added caffeine, say before I’m going to go to bed or just chill and relax. I steep for 4 minutes and enjoy immediately. I don’t think the tea needs anything, no honey or sugar, just enjoy the smooth Raspberry. :)

Spectacular Darjeeling. Not all Darjeelings are picked and prepared equally and BourgeaTEA’s is the tip of the crop. I’m a really big fan of black teas and this really is one of the better ones that I’ve tasted.

I’m not a huge Chai fan, but once in a while I get a craving for it. When I do want Chai, this is the stuff. Love the combo of Chai and green tea. Sometimes I’m not sure how I want to steep it, but it always turns out tasting good

One of my first teas.. Meaning one of the teas that helped me understand TEA CAN TASTE AMAZING! Wonderful floral, delicate flavors, but doesn’t taste watered down.

Great idea – Tastes amazing and helps the body as well! This is my kind of tea. Interesting combo too, with the Pu=erh and rooibos… Two of my favorites. Steep for 4 minutes to get the best flavor.

drank Detox by BourgeaTEA

Bourgea’s Detox tea is one of my favorites of his. It has plenty of flavor and is supposedly packed with some general healthy body goodness, i.e. help a hangover, or the flu. I boil some water in my kettle and steep for 4 minutes exactly. If you like, drop some honey in the bottom of your cup before pouring for some more goodness. Definitely try the Detox tea!

Not a problem, this is one of my good friends from school who owns the company. I’m helping build his website at the moment, and of course am a fan of his tea since I can get it locally! :)

I’ll let you know when it’s up so you can find out more about his company!

That would be awesome! Thanks!
