This chai is pretty good. I think I decided I like it best with milk or else it can be a little harsh with the spices, but I enjoy it :)

My wonderful boyfriend made me some of this while I was studying for my exam I have tomorrow. It was much needed. I swear that I have rated this tea before but I can’t find any trace of it – maybe I am going crazy. More about this tea when my brain isn’t so fried.

Second cup a much better than the first. I need to play around with the brew temp and time, as the instructions on the package didn’t yield a taste I like.

Made another pot of this for today cause my bf drank all of the rest of my first pot – lol. He apparently really likes iced mint green tea.

I made a pot of this iced tonight. For some reason I never thought to ice this, but then today I was like how delicious would the minty goodness of this tea be cold! And I was right it is so yummy cold, the mint flavor really shines through! Uber refreshing!

Preparation
Iced 5 min, 0 sec

I haven’t had this tea in a while, but I decided it was just what I needed while doing my reading for my Advanced Physical Anthropology class. And it was…green, minty, refreshing, delicious!

I really am enjoying this tea. It both relaxes me and wakes me up. It is also really refreshing.

Had this again today. It wasn’t hot enough but it was still pretty good. Good green tea flavor with just a hint of mint.

Also I must add that I am writing this tasting note on an iPad and it is really cool. Steepster looks very nice on it.

Had another cup of this. My second cup reminded me of sleepytime tea. I don’t know why. Maybe it is the spearmint.

I really liked this tea. It was a good green tea. The mint wasn’t very strong but the green tea flavor was definitely there. It was very refreshing.

Had some of this with French Toast this morning. The smoky boldness went well with the sweetness of the food. I am almost out of this tea sadly. I will have to find some more Lapsang Souchong.

Had a cup of this tea this afternoon with some crackers and cheese. It was a wonderful pairing. I don’t drink this tea that often but sometimes the bold smokiness really calls me. Today was one of those days and it was a spectacular cup of tea.

Boiling 5 min, 0 sec

Just had this with some black bean tortilla chips and homemade guacamole = yummy. The smokiness of this tea went well with my savory snack :)

Backlogging this from yesterday. My boyfriend brought it for me from the UK.

This smelled overpowerly of charcoal/smoke, so I was a little nervous to taste it. It turned out to be quite delicious however. It has a nice light flavor which is very earthy. It almost tastes like cedar or pine. It was a very pleasant mix of flavors.

On a good day, it tastes like an Earl Grey with a twist – something with Bergamot will always be Earl Grey in my eyes. The jasmine makes it taste quite civilised and regal somehow. I think it’s probably the perfect Afternoon drink with scones or something like that.
On a bad day the flavours seem to be battling each other rather than harmonising. Not sure whether it’s how I brewed it or the mood I was in. So in short, it’s quite a mixed review going on here…

Very nice, light tea to drink at any time of day. I drink it with a splash of milk usually or very few leaves and no milk. Refreshing, zingy after-taste too.

My standard green tea. It’s hard for me to write a note about it because I compare all other green teas to gunpowder. This has slightly more tightly wrapped gunpowder balls than the last gunpowder I had. It’s still delicious though. I expect that when I’m old and grey, I will have some gunpowder tea sitting in my cupboard, it just wouldn’t be the same without it.

This time I might have made it with the water a little bit too hot. I am feeling impatient but the more I sip at a cup when it’s this hot, the more I am going to burn myself, and I’ll regret it in the morning (they always say that “you’ll regret it in the morning” about drinking too quickly, not usually about tea…)
