drank Spicy Vanilla Chai by Tea Oh
1303 tasting notes

I’m a bit…underwhelmed by this tea. It’s tasty, no doubt, but not at all what I had expected. When I first opened the bag, a puff of ground ginger came out, which was a bit off-putting. I taste tea and cardamom and I most definitely taste ginger, but I’m not catching a lot of vanilla. No milk, though that might help. I hate to say it, because Tea Oh! is a local company and I don’t like giving bad reviews, but it tastes kind of like a bad gingerbread cookie. There’s a definite ginger burn, I don’t know if they use dried ginger and it just fell apart or if they actually just used ground ginger which is…ick.

It’s an okay tea. If you like spicy chais, you might enjoy this one. I’m going to try it with some soy milk and see if that helps.

EDIT: I added soy (Natura unsweetened soy milk) and it helped me identify the flavor. It tastes like a cup of pumpkin pie spice, or a store-bought pumpkin pie where they used too much spice. shrugs This one might go up for swap soon.

My tastes in tea have changed, so I should update this as well. I find myself leaning more towards rooibos and herbals, if only for their great ability to chill in my travel mug for hours and not get weird on me. When I have time to properly brew a cuppa, I lean towards white teas (which I only steep for 30 seconds) and black teas (which only get 2-3 minutes from me). I cannot stand green teas, they’re too fiddly for my tastes. Oolongs are great, but a bit fiddly as well. However, I love watching oolongs open up in my looseleaf brewer. I’m slowly discovering mates and falling for them…there are many I look forward to trying!

So…yeah. That’s me and my tea!
