So for this tasting note I am doing a 1 to 5 scale. 1 being horrible and 5 being amazing! I will analyze before and after cupping.

Before Cupping:
Appearance: Freshly grounded. Clearly brilliant colors no off colors expected. – 5
Aroma: Ginger, Black Teas, Black Pepper, Cardamom, Cinnamon, Cloves – 5
Body: No comment – NA
Taste: No comment – NA
Finish: No comment – NA

Overall, before cupping, the tea smells amazing and makes my mouth water. Wonderful aroma of ginger, cinnamon, cloves, and chai tea.

Overall Score BEFORE CUPPING: 10/10 100% A

After Cupping:
Appearance: No defined line, mixing or blending properly with Belgian Rock Sugar, not cloudy, wonderful matly colored tone, caramel brown in color (expected for chai tea) – 5
Aroma: PERFECT! Smells just like before cupping! Yummy! Smells are more defined – 5
Body: Smooth, silky, spicy, wonderful balance! Activated my sweet taste buds as well as my spicy buds. Really spicy and smokey, like many chi teas are, which I love! Can really taste the cinnamon, cloves, and cardamom. – 5
Taste: It’s wonderful. Chai is NOT over powered by the spices. Sweet and spicy. Yummy hint of spices in the after taste. I can definitely taste the cinnamon, cardamom, and ginger. Not so much the pepper though! – 5
Finish: TASTE LINGERS! THANK YOU JESUS! Nice and smooth and leaves me wanting to drink more! Love how I can taste the spices in the after taste that lingers! – 5

Overall after cupping this tea is inviting, malty, smokey, spicy, and warming. It reminds me of Christmas time a lot. Wonderful tea to drink when it’s cold out! Love this tea and highly recommend it! WONDERFUL!

Huh, not bad for coming out of a box! I mixed it with some vanilla soy milk which may have been a mistake because it is a bit on the sweet side. I think it would have done better without the added sweetness of the soy. There is a slight soapiness to it, but only if I’m really thinking about it (which is a problem I have run into with other pumpkin spice chai). The spices seem to be mixed well with clove slightly dominating. There is something leaving a nice little burn in my throat after each sip and I can’t tell if it is pepper or ginger. I’m on the verge of getting a cold, so the extra heat feels good and my whole body warmed up a bit after several sips. I put a little of the concentrated tea in the pot of oatmeal that I was making and it made it smell really good, but it’s hard to tell if the taste came through especially when I’m sipping on a mug of it. I’ll have to experiment more in the future with oatmeal chai.

Really did not like this concentrate. Overly sweet, and not that nice a taste. Skip it.
