drank Bombay Chai Tea by Revolution Tea
267 tasting notes

I looove chai, but generally choose to make a sort of pseudo-chai using just the spices, so as to refrain from consuming the caffeine. Feeling a bit woogy this morning I thought I’d give this chai a go- and it’s pretty mediocre. Just … vaguely chai spiced. (Not as good as the masala chai from SpecialTeas). I thought the cinnamon chips would stand out, but I don’t taste them at all.

Chai is, however, really great for soothing the tummy.
I accidentally oversteeped this one, and it still tastes a bit…pale… glad that the black tea didn’t turn bitter.

You know, the tea bag seemed a bit under-filled. I know a cup of tea always uses far less loose tea than I expect, but it still looked a bit sad. Revolution teas are always overpackaged, but they’d make good stocking stuffers or care-package add-ons. I’m gravitating towards tea bags as I am heading off to a scary language-intensive training program that involves living in a dorm. I am far too old for dorm living.

@TeaEqualsBliss Mmmm ginger peach does sound good- I have liked their orange-cocoa green before and their earl grey lavender, but that was it among those I’ve tried.

@Kristin- I think I’ve tried some teas from that company before- they used to sell them at one of the student UofChicago shops.

@SoccerMom – even though I am safely indoors I am blaming the weather ;)
