This is pretty good. This company is one that I’ve ordered from in the past, before it called itself “jar of tea” – it used to be called AuraZen on Etsy.

I just finished submitting a review for this tea on the Tea Review Blog.

It is light and refreshing, with a beautiful lemony taste. Sweet, but not too sweet. Nice.

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more

drank Celebration Chai by jar of tea
4366 tasting notes

Having previously sampled this blend when it was called “Mardi Gras Celebration Chai” and sold by Aura Zen Tea (which is aka Jar of Tea), I kind of postponed my sampling of the tea (since I already knew what to expect).

If you’re interested, I reviewed the tea previously here: http://www.teareviewblog.com/?p=11486

This is a decent tasting tea, although I don’t think I personally would call it a “chai” – of course, since “chai” means tea, I guess it is perfectly acceptable to call it a chai, but when I think of “chai” I think of masala chai, and I don’t really consider this a masala blend.

It is, however, very delicious. It has a strong cinnamon flavor – like the cinnamon candy. It is a very enjoyable tea to drink, with a pleasant sweetness and a very fruity character – juicy and delicious.

This blend of spices has a unique flavor. It’s a nice alternative when I’m craving chai in the late evenings, but don’t want to be awake for many hours to come.

that is true aurazen, I am the creator of this blend… organic peaches that meet my quality check for taste are near impossible for me to find.

I live near Park Hill Pantry and the creator of the tea said to me a couple months ago that this was a very popular tea when it wasn’t organic, however, when he altered the recipe to meet a 100% organic blend, he had to substitute apricots for the dried peaches since he did not have access to organic dried peaches… he is a masterful blender, even though it could be called ginger apricot, it tastes exactly like the original conventional ginger peach blend… I keep it around because it is very soothing and my kids even love the way it tastes without sugar

excellent winter and summer tea! In the winter it makes a nice caffeine free evening mulled tea, while in the summer it makes the best thirst quenching ice tea you can imagine!!

this tea is super refreshing! I take enough to make 2 pots (4-6 teaspoons) and steep 8 cups of water for 5-7 mins from boiled water, then, I pour over ice in my air pot. No sweetener is needed!!! this tea has a perfect balance of natural sweetness and the kids love it even with NO SUGAR ADDED! This is the best herbal lemonade for ice tea ever!

Dry leaves smell a little like Citronella
During infusion the scent really starts popping out and completely morphs into something else! Lovely Peach and Apricot with a dash of Ginger…nice scent!

Taste…The Black Tea and Ginger are a just a half of a step ahead of the Peach/Apricot taste…it all blends well together and it’s tasty. YUM

In reading through the ingredient list, I’m perplexed as to why there are apricot pieces in it instead of peach pieces. As a tea blender, I know that the fruit pieces have really very little impact (practically NO impact) on the flavor of the tea… so that isn’t the issue. I don’t think that peach pieces are in so short supply that they couldn’t have been used in this blend. So the only thing I can think of is that maybe it’s a bit more difficult to find organic peach pieces than it is to find organic apricot pieces.

Anyways, on to the tasting. The ginger and peach are balanced well in this cup. Neither one overwhelms the other – and the overall flavor is sweet yet spicy. It’s quite enjoyable.

I also like that I can taste the black tea but that it is mild enough that it doesn’t interfere with the peachy, ginger-y flavor that I love!

Smells very cinnamon-y, kind of like red hots but with a citrus twist.

This is a very pleasant tasting rooibos chai blend. The orange peel gives it a juicy, refreshing flavor, and it has a sweet flavor to it – sort of spicy sweet, which I really like.

Lemon LEMON lemon…
if you like LEMON – you’ll like this!

I like lemon so this is great!
It’s a green rooibos background so it seems to fit with the lemon.

I’m sure this would be excellent cold too! I only have one sample so maybe I will try and let it chill and report back!

This is REALLY nice!

I’m drinking this right now and it is jam-packed with ingredients! It mostly smells like Rosehips and various fruit…and CINNAMON…but like a candied-cinnamon…like fireball.

This is VERY Sweet!

I can taste apple, orange, floral, cinnamon, cranberry. The Cinnamon is like a candy fireball type cinnamon. It’s not “hot” tho…the fruits seems to interrupt that idea. There is a lot going on with this and the focus isn’t the black tea taste but I can relate to the celebration term…because it’s very busy and happy and exciting! It all seems to come together and work and it’s unlike anything I have ever had before. thumbs up for being creative! This is pretty good!

TeaEqualsBliss

As it cools the candy-fireball cinnamon is coming out more…

LiberTEAS

Ahh… as I was reading this, it sounded familiar to me. This tea was aka the Mardi Gras Celebration Chai – Jar of Tea is aka Aura Zen Tea. I reviewed it on TRB:

LiberTEAS
