Thankful this tea is back in my life! I was glad when Frank said he would reblend it if I purchased a pound. Well Happy Valentine’s Day to me! (LOL) I ordered the pound and it arrived yesterday! WOW this was the first time I ever got a pound of tea at one tea (at least of one particular kind- That’s a lot of tea!!! I am in tea heaven! Thanks again 52TEAS!!!!!!! You are wonderful!!!! I enjoyed a cup of this at work this am!

Cofftea

I buy chai by the pound all the time:)

Kristen

How do you store it? I am looking for a tin/canister to store this pound of tea!

Cofftea

Just in the company packaging.

Kristen

I usually just keep mine in the pouches frank sends them in too but this was just in one huge ziploc bag! Didn’t think it would be good to leave it in that….

Specialty Bottle has a 16oz tin at the bottom of this page: http://www.specialtybottle.com/index.asp?PageAction=Custom&ID=25 , maybe you could split it into a few of those for better storage? (or something similar?)

Kristen

Thanks, I currently separated it into a bunch of different tins but was hoping to find a big one to hold all of it in one tin! Probably should just leave it in the couple tins I have it in. It is super delicious…just want it to stay fresh for awhile…even though I know I will probably drink it up quickly. I already took a stash of it into work :)

Kristen

@ Cofftea just curious… How fast do you go through your pound of chai?

Cofftea

My advice would have been (sorry it stayed in my brain til now lol) is to keep the 2oz packages sealed and away from light and open them only as you need them. I go thru a lb of Tipu’s instant chai in 30-60days depending on how heavy handed I am (it’s usually pretty heavy though lol) and I go thru Frank’s chai in about 42 days.

Kristen, I would have divvied this up into individual pouches, but I actually ended up making more than a pound, and since it was already a bit late, I thought I would just get it out to you.

Kristen

No problem Frank…it is yummy and I am sure I will go through it quickly anyway. I just put it in a bunch of different tins.

Cofftea

Actually I like one massive pouch. I wish Frank’s Chai would come that way.

For those interested in knowing, my mom LOVES this tea! She texted me while I was at work just to let me know how much she liked it and she posted a message of her love for it on my facebook wall! Think she likes it :)

Cofftea

Your mom should be on Steepster.:)

Kristen

I know I told her too but so far she hasn’t logged on. I will keep trying!

drank Pineapple Sencha by Den's Tea

I LOVE THIS!!!! I couldn’t wait to try the pineapple sencha after trying the apple sencha earlier this afternoon. I ordered the apple for my mom and the pineapple for me. This is so so good! I did use the recommended short steep time of 30sec. and boiling water and the pineapple taste is simply amazing! I think this would be great iced but I am enjoying this hot. It kind of gives me the feeling of summer but with warmth during these cold cold days here in Pennsylvania. This one will be on the reorder list for sure! I think next time I am going to order the orange sencha as well!

Kristen

THANKS STEEPERITES FOR TURNING ME TOWARDS ANOTHER GREAT TEA AND TEA COMPANY!!!!!

Thanks to Kristin for this sample! I actually sent her some Talbott tea Luscious Lemon Meringue and she sent me this one. I have to agree with her. These teas taste almost identical! So if you miss special teas Lemon chiffon try Talbott Teas Luscious Lemon Meringue

drank Apple Sencha by Den's Tea
193 tasting notes

I placed my first Den’s Tea order and it came really quickly! I ordered the $3 sampler for novices and am really looking forward to broadening my horizons and trying them! My ultimate is to one day try matcha! Have been a little timid and nervous for some reason about Matcha. I figured a great place to start would be Den’s tea sampler to try some Japanese greens!
I actually ordered the apple sencha and pineapple sencha in addition to the sampler pack. The apple sencha specifically for my mom but I took some out of the pack to try. It is great…really taste quality in this. The apple is awesome. Now I can’t wait to break in the pineapple sencha! Really like this, too bad that pouch went home with my Momma! Can’t wait to see what she thinks of it!!

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 0 min, 45 sec
Cofftea

Den’s flavored senchas are amazing. If you want to ease into matcha, try their Mecha.

Kristen

Thanks I will have to check that out!

Shinobi_cha

Whenever you order, you can also request a sample of anything, just so you can try it out. But I warn you, you’ll probably end up ordering whatever it is! It’s their clever way to draw you in…. :-) (You can’t get sample sizes of matcha, unfortunately)

Shinobi_cha

(Actually, I don’t know that 100%, I’m just betting you can’t get matcha samples… maybe you can??)

Cofftea

You can request samples? Cool! Although I like the suprise of the one they send you.

Shinobi_cha

Yes, the surprise is nice. Actually, I think they sometimes have replaced the surprise with my request, but more often they just included it! :-)

I took some of this into work today and after lunch I decided to make a cup. Well I had to step out of my office for something and when I came back in my office smelled DELICIOUS!!!!! (This would make a great scent for one of those plug in things!!!) Yummy

Lisbet

Ohhh I just got this in the mail today and am now looking super forward to it.

Thanks to Chi of Tea for the sample offer! This is the first of their teas I am trying. Smell from sample pouch=Orange. It is a pleasant orange! This has a hint of ginger taste but orange is the dominant flavor. Very nice! I am hoping the ginger and ginger root in this will help settle an upset stomach from eating a McDonalds Quarter pound cheeseburger last night. That would be great! This is a tea I could definitely see reordering!

drank Birthday Tea by Harney & Sons
193 tasting notes

Ok this time I steeped for appropriate time and still am getting a “weird” combo…I think it is the berry herbal and black thing that is not meshing well for me. Too berry like medicinal even at the correct steep time. This I must say is the first Harney’s tea I was not super impressed with. I can finish the cup but not something I would reach for again.

Kristin

The ingredients sound so promising too!
