drank Sweet Chai by Yogi Tea
224 tasting notes

I’ve been badly wanting some tea since this morning when i went to work. Result of a tea drinking weekend.

Color bright yellow, not very clear.

Smells a lot like coriander to me, very strong. Idk if it even has it in. Let me see… Oh no it was anise. Ouzo smell lol. Btw ingredients are: Anise, fennel, liquorice, cardamom, black pepper, cinnamon, ginger and cloves.

OK lets give it a try…
I don’t fancy this sweet part of Yogi’s Sweet teas (like the sweet chilly one) – the kind of sweetness that really kicks in in the back of my throat (that could be liquorice right?). But this one is more drinkable than the chilly one. Its quite strong. Well spicy would be the word. Very sweet, very peppery, strong anise scent. That pretty much kills the rest of chai ingredients.
It really isn’t bad tho. There is something interesting about it. Strong pepper and anis make a good combo.

Teabag message (trying to Google translate the German): satisfaction and self-mastery are our greatest gifts.

EDIT bit later
Honestly it’s so peppery that it cleared up my sinuses and lungs :D makes it hard to drink it fast…
Sip of milk first made it worse but with a teaspoon of sugar its not that bad. Easier to drink…

born with a bit of a restless, curious and exploring spirit ;) love to travel and i do it a lot lately. enjoy good food and drinks. love trying out new stuff. just about to start exploring the world of teas and i’m really enthusiastic about it ;)

EDIT 4 months later:
still a n00b here but starting to get it ;) i try to buy loose tea but i got a lot of teabags too cuz it’s easier to find here. from not liking black tea ended up love it. green can be quite good too but waiting for more real ones to try. whites are sometimes awesome, sometimes not, rooibos and fruity blends are a good replacement for juices… and so on… still excited about every new tea… loving it more every day :D

since my favorite hobby is photography i take photos whenever something is interesting. including my tea making process…
