Recent Tasting Notes
I have to agree with other reviewers: there’s not much hazelnut or vanilla flavor in this tea. It’s much more of a cinnamon/herbal flavor, with little nut/vanilla taste to go around. As a spiced herbal tea, it’s decent. But it fails to convey the two flavors that it lists on its box.
My first review in the new house :) I have a lot to do so this teabag comes in handy for a quick sip down. The bag smelled rather dry and spicy with prominent clove and pepper tones.
It says to leave in boiling water for 5-10 minutes so while I wait I will read the little quote on the teabags tag. ‘Have wisdom in your actions and faith in your merits’. Also gives me time to quickly check the Cyber Monday deals on a few cross stitch websites. Already bought myself a Marilyn Monroe kit and teapot kit.
Once cooled slightly (enough to sip) the flavour is very thick and herbal with a linger spice aftertaste. It tastes almost chemical, there is something in it that is unpleasant, it could be the licorice root as I am not a fan of it at all. Besides the licorice root I can also taste: clove, pepper and cinnamon. They blend together and the licorice taste takes over, very thick and refreshing though plastic like.
Unfortunately it is not pleasant to drink BUT I have a wave of tiredness come over me. My eyes are heavy and I’m yawning all of a sudden. It’s either the tea, my rush around this morning had latent effect or the result of listening to Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness (which is my favourite album). Or perhaps a combination of all three. So not a great tea but drinkable, though huge warning label if you don’t like licorice.
This mixture has very good energizing and digestive properties, and it is excellent for relieving stress fatigues and calming nerves during particularly strenuous periods . I like to enjoy this tea early in the morning to start a good day, or at night, especially after a particularly hard to digest dinner. I love this tea both hot and cold, and I usually do not use any sweetener to not change its particular flavor.

This is an ok rooibos chai but not really a favorite. I’ve come to realize I like chais that contain both fennel and pepper because I like the spicy kick that comes with that. this chai is on the sweeter side, with cardamom, cinnamon, ginger and clove. It also contains stevia, which is a bit on the strong side for me. When I sweeten with stevia, I use a bottle dropper and one or two drops because it just gets so overwhelming if you use too much. After I drink this I get the “too much” kind of taste in my mouth.
Anyway I am sure I will finish the box, but can’t tea makers just let you add your own stevia or sugar to tea after you’ve brewed it?
