Hmm… I don’t really know what to say about this one. It tastes like a decent, middle of the road masala chai. Nothing really special – I was hoping to be able to pick out vanilla, but, alas, I cannot. (Although it may just be that my palate isn’t sophisticated enough to get that much subtlety, but still, I didn’t taste it AT ALL.) The ginger is identifiable, but only because I was looking for it. To me, it’s just a sort of muddled spiciness, without any one element really standing out from the rest.

HOWEVER, those little candied fennel bits are delicious! As in, I can’t stop myself from picking them out of the bag and snacking all through the day. Of course, this means that there aren’t too many that make it into my cup, but… honestly, I’m okay with that.

Bio

A tea fanatic who works in the tech sector, I purchase most of my tea online. The numerical ratings are to help me remember which teas I should re-order. 85+ means it’s worth a re-purchase. (If I ever get through all of the new ones I want to try!)

It’s pretty obvious from my tealog, but I have special place in my heart for flavored blacks and good rooibos. I also love oolongs, but apparently have expensive taste in that area, so I don’t purchase them too often. Learning to appreciate green tea, but not a fan of overly vegetal ones. Whites make a great iced tea.

I love to try new teas and will sample most anything once. Although I’ll usually pass on Earl Grey or super floral blends.

I drink my tea with no additions, unless otherwise noted in the review.
