37 Tasting Notes

drank Vanilla Rooibos Parfait by Tazo

Picking up a very synthetic flavor. The tea is almost sweetened. The flavoring totally overpowers the rooibos taste.

drank Chocolate Chai by Adagio Teas

Firstly, this tea smells wonderful out of the tin. When brewed, I do not get a ton of chocolate flavor, mostly cinnamon and clove. (I think). The spice taste could be a little stronger, but it is a very drinkable tea.

Preparation
Boiling 5 min, 0 sec
Cofftea

I was disappointed w/ the chocolate in this as well. If you like cayenne in your chai, I’d suggest 52teas’ Mayan Chocolate Chai.

Thanks for the tip! I am trying out different chais, as my boyfriend is something of a chai hound.

This tea does get bitter rather quickly. It is sweet, with a very strong bitter note. Not to my liking.

I tried this bagged. Everything I could ask for in a black tea. Rich without bitterness, somewhat full bodied.

Not a bad bagged tea. I did get the nutty, “twiggy” flavor of this tea.

I found this tea a little light on the rice flavor.

drank Chai Spice by Stash Tea Company

I find this tea to have a very synthetic taste to it. Or maybe it is just heavy on the flavoring oils…

For a bagged tea, this is a pretty nice cup. Steep it for a short period of time to halt the bitterness, maybe about 2-3mins. Has just the right amount of grapefruit flavor.
