I got this tea as a sample from Emilie and I couldn’t be happier that I did! I am always weary of chais because they always come out super spicy or super cinnamon-y and I am just not a big fan of either of those being overpowering. I do like chai in general, though, so I wanted to give this chai a shot. This chai is AMAZING! The vanilla is super smooth and while the cinnamon and spice flavors are there, they are not overpowering, just complementary to the vanilla and the tea itself. I prepared this chai with a little bit of vanilla soymilk, heated first, and it reminds me perfectly of the chai lattes I used to get working at Barnes and Noble in college. Perfect.

Great tea for breakfast. I dont leave big long tasting notes on teas because I just dont feel the need or want to do so I simply state if I liked the tea or not sometimes I’ll talk about the taste of the tea but usually I’m not a man of many words, thats just the way I do things :) I like this tea steeped strong.

that’s okay, I don’t think it’s always necessary to leave long notes. When they’re too long I don’t read them. lol

This one is good too, I liked the other tanzanian tea i had and this one is just as good.

does it tastes closer to assam? Ceylon? or Chinese black teas? Teas always seems to capture either teas essence albeit a bit stronger.

It tastes pretty much like the Natural Tanaznia I had the first time, I liked it alot, I have the Assam also from Keyhung Estates but I havent tried it yet I’ll prolly have it in the morning :)

I’m no expert. I’ve only had Tanzanian tea once before. To me it was less malty and less astringent than some Assams. but smaller leaf teas like the Tanz can become bitter quickly so you do have to be careful. Tanz teas have a unique sweetness to them.

ScottTeaMan

They are not like China blacks at all.

As for me, I prefer it clear (w/o milk). This tea gives the lie to Orwell’s claim that China tea isn’t as brisk, refreshing or bracing as India or Ceylon tea. (Duh, it was originally used to blend English Breakfast Tea; no longer, I suppose because there are way less expensive teas available.)
