So, this is technically the second time I’ve had this, but I can’t remember much about the first time, because I have been in a haze the last few weeks, and I didn’t really pay much attention to this tea. However, today I was determined to remember to be better about it, and make a note, since Shae was so kind in sharing this with me…as her first trade. :)
I definitely got spice, and your basic chai spice, it seemed to be balanced blend…and although I could not detect it immediately, I got a very nice warming coconut note at the end of the sip. So lovely.
I did not make this latte style, but I did brew a little extra and use milk at the end.
I enjoyed this one so much yesterday that I had to go for another cup. I wanted to steep this longer since I knew I wouldn’t get a good second cup out of it. Try to pull all of the flavor into this first cup. I used less water at a lower temperature for the same effect and to keep it from going bitter. It tastes nutty, like almonds maybe. There is also some spice there that’s more warming.
Flavors: Almond, Nutty, Spices
I’m not sure how, but I accidentally removed this one from my Steepster cupboard so I couldn’t find it earlier. Never fear, it’s still here and I still really love it. The aroma is cookies and nutty coconut. It steeped up a little bitter today but some honey and cream evened it out. I’m not really tasting any chai spices so maybe I’ll need to shake it up next time. The flavor is still good though, thick and creamy. Much butter than this morning’s Tulsi Detox. But now I have officially logged each cup in my cupboard. Goal complete! This is my celebratory cup. :)
8 ounces water + 200 degrees + 15 minutes
I wish I had read my notes on this one before re-steeping. Apparently, I wasn’t too happy with the second steep last time around. The liquid is very light in color. There is still some flavor, more spice, but not enough for me.
Flavors: Bitter, Coconut, Cookie, Nutty, Spices
Today’s cup is sweet and milky and spiced with ginger. I steeped the tea in 4 ounces of water, then added 4 ounces of steaming milk that I had warmed with a spoon of honey. It’s a luxurious treat this Saturday morning.
This is a good tea, one that smells of ginger snaps and coconut. The deep, dark tea and the spices – it’s a welcome departure from the fruity hibiscus herbals I’ve been drinking this week. Having teas like this one reminds me of why I keep coming back to tea.
Flavors: Cookie, Ginger
This tea smells incredible. It’s all coconut and smells fresh and tropical. The dry mix is mostly tea – small, long, twisted black leaves. There are also small pieces of ginger and cinnamon bark. The aroma kind of reminds me of ginger snap cookies (the good, chewy kind), but I wouldn’t necessarily say that it smells strongly of ginger. The fragrance is sweeter.
The tea leaves must have soaked up quite a bit of water because I don’t have nearly as much in my cup now as I put in. The liquid is dark and a little murky. I smell more ginger now but still the coconut. The taste is mostly ginger, again like those ginger snaps. There is also a bit of tartness there, like the slight acidity of lemon. It doesn’t taste like lemon, but it does have some zip. I don’t taste the cardamom or the cinnamon really, but it’s nice to be able to experience a spice other than cinnamon every now and then. I’m having this cup with a banana muffin and the two are getting along together quite nicely.
8 ounces water + 200 degrees + 10 minutes
I smell more cinnamon this time around. This cup is light in color but still a little cloudy. It still has the sweet perfume. I’m not sure it’s worth the re-steep, but it does taste more spiced with the second cup.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Coconut, Cookie, Ginger, Spices, Sweet, Tart, Tropical
This is such a fun tea. It actually has miniature gummy bears in it! The fragrance is menthol and fruit. I can see lemongrass, hibiscus, and bits of fruit and flower petals. And gummy bears, of course! The color of the liquid is deep – a purplish red. It does smell like fruity gummy bears, but it has more of a berry flavor. It’s also a bit tart. Overall, this tea is fun but not terribly exciting taste-wise. I let it cool a bit on my desk and it’s not bad so this may be one to try later on ice.
Flavors: Berry, Candy, Fruity, Menthol, Tart
I love this tea. The fragrance is so comforting. It will always be in my cupboard.
6 ounces water + 200 degrees + 16 minutes
I almost lost this one to my keyboard. I don’t know which would have bummed me out more, spilling tea in my keyboard or not having tea. :(
I love this. It’s all floral roses and strong, dark tea. It’s such a lovely combination. It actually reminds me of the Lebanese desserts my grandmother used to make growing up. Honey and cream make this a near perfect cup.
8 ounces water + 212 degrees + 10 minutes
I can still taste the rose, but it’s not as strong or as dark as the first cup. It’s definitely still satisfying though.
Flavors: Floral, Rose
This tea smells so wonderful. I just love the combination of strawberries and black tea. It reminds me of Teavana’s Strawberry Slender Puerh which is one of my favorites. Actually, probably my very favorite. It’s been a while since I’ve had this one, though I’m not sure why since I remember enjoying it before. The main difference I think between this one and the Strawberry Slender is the floral aspect. It tastes like rose water even though I don’t detect that in the aroma. The smell is all fruit and berries.
6 ounces water + 212 degrees + 10 minutes
Mmm. This cup is nice and sweet.

I let this one steep for several minutes, maybe as many as 20 minutes. The color of the liquid is a much lighter shade and the fruit bits mixed with the tea have swelled and plumped enough to distinguish them as stone fruits. I bit into one and it tasted of peach or maybe nectarine. The steeped tea still has some flavor but I’ll probably stop here since it may be getting a little weaker.
Flavors: Berries, Floral, Fruity, Rose, Stonefruits, Strawberry
