87 Tasting Notes
This is by and far the nicest holiday spice tea I’ve ever had. If Christmas had a taste, this would be it!
Not only is the scent of this tea impressively overpowering (in the best way possible), but it takes very little of your preferred sweetener to bring it up to full fruit flavor. Fantastic!
Spot-on spice mix! It’s difficult to find bagged chai blends that do the job, but this one definitely excels.
I’m usually not a fan of chamomile (I don’t particularly like the taste), but this is pleasant enough that I can drink it and not find the chamomile element overpowering. Slightly sweet, grassy, and sharp all at once.
What a pleasant surprise! I’m usually wary of white teas on account of how easy it is to over-brew them, but thanks to the well balanced spice blend in this unique tea, any bitterness that might come through is well and truly masked.
Where Yogi Tea’s redbush chai has too much spice overload, the hints of cinnamon and cardamom in Caribou Coffee’s Amy’s blend are carefully balanced against the vanilla-like sweetness of the rooibos. What a treat! Meadowfoam honey pairs especially well with this tea.
A nice, balanced Earl Grey with excellent quality bergamot. I like this as a morning tea. I find that the bagged version is quite respectable, too.
The spices overpower the flavor of the rooibos a bit too much for my liking. It seems to me there’s some cinnamon overload going on, but for cinnamon lovers, that could be a plus!
This reminds me more of a low-grade unspecified black tea than an actual oolong. Tolerable with enough honey, but otherwise unremarkable.
This is a flavorful blend of golden tips Assams that’s excellent for morning drinking, but be careful when gauging brewing time! Three minutes is almost too long.
