This time I left in all the sugar they put in this sample. It is not as sweet as I was expecting honestly! It reminds me of red hots candy in scent and a bit in taste. The flavor is very cinnamony and clovey. But there is other stuff going on in the taste that I can’t quite place. Certainly spicy! I think I am also getting some pineapple and papaya notes as well underneath, but they are playing out kind of oddly. I don’t expect fruit in my chai. It is drinkable… But it’s definitely not something I will ever want more of.

Bio

I am tea obsessed, with the stash to match. I tend to really enjoy green oolongs, Chinese blacks, and flavored teas with high quality bases, especially florals, bergamot-based teas, and chocolate teas.

In my free time I am a birder, baker, and music/movie/tv addict.

Here are my rating categories, FYI:
100-90: I’m in LOVE with these teas.
89-85: I really really like these teas and will keep most of them in the permanent collection, but they’re not quite as spectacular as the top category
84-80: Tasty teas that I enjoy, but definitely won’t rebuy when I run out.
79-70: Teas that I would probably drink again, but wouldn’t seek out. They don’t quite do it for me in one aspect or another; often just not quite my style
69-50: Teas that I don’t really enjoy all that much and wouldn’t drink another cup of.
49 and below: Mega yuck. This tea is just disgusting to me.
