As much as I like the cinnamon chai from Upton Tea, this Fennel Chai is the most interesting smelling and tasting chai I think I’ve ever had. Really interesting aroma that features a deep almost earthy aroma, nice rounded flavor; I steeped mine with boiling water for five minutes and there was no bitter aftertaste. (Added vanilla creamer – delicious.)

This smelled WONDERFUL! Really rich, warm, and buttery – and rum fragrance too. Just an absolutely gorgeous aroma. Good strong tea (I add creamer to my black teas), be sure not to overstep. Good especially with vanilla or sweet cream creamers, brings out the subtleties of the brewed tea.

Flavors: Butter

I’m not sure how to describe the aroma other than very fruity and light, almost like blueberries wafting from the cup, but slightly different. With creamer the tea tasted a bit like blueberries and cream (well, huckleberries and cream). Good strong brew, despite the decaffeination (which means for those of us who are affected by caffeine have an alternative).

Flavors: Stonefruits

One of my new go-to teas; a good strong brew (I tend to nearly always add milk and sugar or creamer to my black teas, and this held up very well with the addition thereof). Be careful not to oversteep since it’s on the stronger side.

Excellent decaffeinated tea (especially with milk and sugar or creamer); strong cup of tea doesn’t taste like you’re missing the caffeine. No bitter aftertaste, nice rounded flavor.

Nice nutty tea with good banana aroma; does almost taste like banana walnut bread. Big chunks of freeze dried bananas. I brewed mine a bit longer than the recommended three minutes, and added milk and sugar.

Perfectly serviceable Earl Grey tea (in tea bag form, but good quality tea bag), medium strength brew, holds up well with cream and sugar. Not an especially strong bergamot/citrus aroma or flavor.
