This came in the big box of samples I got from momo a while back.

I’ve been having digestion issues, so I decided to brew up something with ginger. And what better thing to brew up than a chai, right? Adagio does a terrible job of providing a description for this tea. It doesn’t have it’s own page and they don’t list the ingredients anywhere. I wasn’t even sure if ginger was in here. But, one of the reviews mentioned ginger, so it HAS to be, right? ;)

This is actually not bad. It’s got a little more bite than other chais but it’s not SO overpowering. I might have also used more water than I was supposed to, which helped mellow it out. It definitely has a kick, but not too much of one. I think it’s a nice balance.

It’s a shame you can’t buy this tea separately.

It’s $9 for a 4 oz tin, when you pull it up on the gift page it’s way misleading. Unless you mean there’s no way to buy any smaller amount of it.

Babble

Oh you’re right, I misread that. I thought you were buying all three things.

I still don’t see why they can’t just make a separate page for each thing. How do you rate each tea?

momo

Yeah, it’s kind of weird. On the gift page it makes it sound like you buy all three, but then you go to the actual page and there isn’t even an option to buy all three for $25. The horoscope ones all have their own pages, I can’t imagine it’s that much extra work to make it easier to find these because they’re good.

Since I worked on the packaging design I have the ingredients list. Here it is: black tea, cardamom, cloves, ginger, red peppercorn, cinnamon bark, cornflowers, cinnamon flavor.

inguna, thank you! I updated the tea info with that ingredients list.

Bio

So the short story is, a few years ago I was VERY MUCH into tea. And then a lot of things happened, and I got out of tea for a while. And now, I’m back.

To me, tea is the missing puzzle piece for my healthy lifestyle. When I drink tea I am encouraged to eat healthy and be active. I drink tea because I simply enjoy the taste, but the health aspects are just an added bonus.

I love all types of teas, although greens and oolongs tend to be my favorite. I also love a good herbal.

Unless otherwise stated, I drink my teas straight. To brew I either use my ingenuiTEA or T-Sac (for teas that don’t expand much). One of these days I might break down and buy a Breville, but I’m trying to resist..

I’m kinda strict when rating my teas. I rarely give a tea above a 95. Teas that I really like I keep in the 95-85 category. I’ve yet to give a tea 100 yet. So, if you see a tea about 95, that means I thought it was an amazing tea!
