66 Tasting Notes

Been drinking this at my friend’s house in Philly with almond milk and sugar. Makes for a great Thanksgiving dinner tea…

drank Thai Chai by Adagio Teas
66 tasting notes

So I finally get to try the infamous Thai Chai from Adagio! (It’s really only infamous because I’ve built it up in my head as this great, inpenetrable force, after wanting it for so long).
And….after preparing it the way adagio suggested, and adding a teaspoon or so of sugar, I’ve come to the conclusion that I’m a bit underwhelmed.
I was expecting the messiah in tea form to come sweep me off my feet and change the entire way that I perceive tea. Instead, I have a really decent cup of tea, but no change in perception. Oh well, this is what I get for building myself up!
The lemongrass I feel is a bit over the top for me—however—this is still a really delicious cup of tea, and it’s definately something I’m going to serve to my friends in my new teapot when they come to visit. I just don’t know if I’ll purchase it again when I know about Zhena’s coconut chai…mmm.
I’m going to try it with milk as well and see how it goes. Until then, still really good, but not my favorite thing ever.

Mmmm good morning!
Good news: I just purchased the Adagio Tea chai tea sampler! Horray!
(Though sadly, they removed two chais off of the list. But, I still get four chais).

Just recently finished up with James Joyce’s Ulysses, and of course I simply needed to drink half the box of this.
Nice, with a little almond milk and sugar. Just what I need in the mornings.

This is what I wish I had this morning! Sounds great right now.

Received this from a friend—and to be honest, I don’t really like it. It has a really weird aftertaste.
I’d much rather have ‘Hot Cinnamon Sunset’ from Harney and Sons.

Not bad, not bad. Certainly not my favorite chai, but then again, I’ve been having issues with Yogi lately.
Still a nice cup for waking up with though. Tea in the morning with breakfast? YES. (then tea in class, tea with lunch, tea snack, maybe tea dinner though by then I’m sometimes burned out, and tea late night treat. All my favorites.)

I’ve been having this tea in the morning with my breakfast for a while now.
There’s very little hazelnut flavor, so I usually cover it up with a touch of almond milk and a minute amount of stevia. Not so bad, then!

Maybe it’s because I’m a trail mix fan, or of ANY kind of nut, rather, but I was hoping for a more hazelnutty flavor. (Scratch that, I’m obsessed with nuts—so yogi, why is your hazelnut tea not very nutty?)
I added a dollop of almond milk and a touch of stevia—which did only a little for the hazelnut flavor. While it’s not a bad tea, it’s just lacking in the ‘nut flavor’ department.

I’m guessing it was going for a French Vanilla type flavor profile w/o using that term.

I love a nutty taste as well, and often find I’m terribly disappointed when I try any tea blend that’s supposed to contain “almond” or “hazelnut” notes. They’re rarely strong enough for me!

I’m almost out of this. :( I just ran out of the coconut chai by Zhena’s, too! All my favorite teas are being drunk.

Alannah

That’s the way it should be! I sometimes take too long to use mine up and then they get stale. :(

It makes me sad though, cause I deplete the stores of ‘tried and favorite’, and finally when I do buy tea I have a single container left on the shelf.

A tasty cup to cling to while my professor ripped on my drawings of Theseus from the Parthenon in class today. Cowering behind a mug of tea at 9 am in the morning got me through the entire class—thank goodness!
