drank Mayan Chocolate Chai by 52teas
328 tasting notes

This tea is simply excellent. Prior to tasting, I expected a slightly sweetened traditional chai with a lil’ extra cayenne pepper kick (kind of a cajun-style chai)… How wrong was I! Instead, the tea flavors are a symphony blooming in the following order : an overture of chai w/chocolate, then the crescendo of almond sweetness (yes almonds), then the cayenne pepper kick like a cymbal.

Thanks to Doulton for the sample and Cofftea for raving about this one! After I finish the 52 teas samples Doulton sent me, I plan to place an order for this tea!

This is one I suppose I’m going to have to order the next time I order from 52 Teas.

Cofftea

I don’t get any almond personally, but that’s ok:)

It is funny how people perceive teas differently. Prior to reading the ingredient list, I could have sworn this tea tasted like almonds. Then lo and behold- almonds are in the mix!

Cofftea

Haha that’s funny- I didn’t know there were almonds in it til someone said it here. And that was after trying it. Still can’t taste ’em.

I’m so excited my 52Teas order came in yesterday and this is in there. I cannot wait to try it!

Just a few months ago the only tea I drank was hot lipton tea at work, an occasional mint tea, and sweet iced tea.. Then my daughter got me some loose leaf teas for Christmas and then, my tea addiction began…..

And what better way to get lots of dessert flavors w/o the calories?

I prefer my tea with a tinge of sugar. Is that cheating? But to me , the combination of sugar and tea is like salt and cooking- both bring out the natural flavors.

My tea drinking has evolved into a set routine: a breakfast blend in the AM, some flavored blacks during the day, late afternoon or evening flavored green/white, herbal (usually spicy, chai inspired) at night.

Not into unflavored greens/whites yet. Just started appreciating unflavored blacks and am thinking that smoky teas may become my favorite…
When I am not drinking tea, I am working as an engineer, reading, watching some of the better TV shows (like Damages and Breaking Bad), practicing my yoga, cooking, gardening, and spoiling my two miniature poodles (Coco and Timmy)…
