drank Chai Spice by Verdant Tea
988 tasting notes

This is sooo good! Why have I been holding off brewing this?!?!?! I ordered 2 oz (I think) back about a month ago, and have just not been in a chai mood, and I was worried it wouldn’t live up to how good the Laoshan Village Chai is. But man, this is good! It’s very similar to the village chai, minus the caffeine! swoons this might be my new nighttime chai! And yes, I am going to try blending this with some of my Laoshan black, and some other teas as well! I steeped this for the whole 5 minutes, and it’s a spicy, stimulating brew but yet warm and comforting at the same time. This has a bite though! There’s a spice in here with some nice zing to it :D and it feels very cleansing on the throat. Very happy I finally dove into this bag!

Got to get some! I’ve been collecting a bin of spices for blending my own tea creations when I feel the creative urge. Loving the Verdant Chai Spice and Ginger Winter Blend so much.

I need to start blending! I don’t know why I haven’t, I think I’m worried I will mess them up, but I need to just give it a shot one day, there’s nothing to fear :) except maybe a strange tasting cup of tea.

OMGsrsly

I should try this one as I need a good chai spice mix, and I do like the spices in Verdant’s chai teas!

MissLena

I’d definitely try some, it’s a very good chai even without being mixed! :)

My box of additions began before people like Verdant had the Chai mix. Sometimes I wanted a little ginger or cinnamon chip in my puerh or a few cocoa hulls and a splat of orange. Over time I have played more with every-day base tea and enjoy being creative. Always using the best ingredients is key. My tea shop sells organic herbs and spices including locally grown medicinal herbs from the Rocky Mountains. (I have 2 spice shops in Old Town too, Savory is online and one of the best in the U.S.)

I should look for a good spice place in my city! It’d be fun to make my own spice blend or combo to add to teas when I am in the mood :)

Hello all, I am an electrical engineer (read:NERD :D), who is a bit obsessed with tea! I discovered loose tea in 2011, DAVIDsTEA in 2012 and it took off from there. I really started drinking/enjoying tea because it was excellent to take to class in the morning and because I can’t handle coffee! (unless it’s a really good cappuccino or latte, or decent decaf haha)

I enjoy a variety of teas – current favorites being ripe and raw pu’erhs, chinese black teas and herbal/green rooibos blends. I also enjoy white, green, and oolong teas, although I tend to drink them more in the warmer months. I have also tried matcha and guayusa, but I don’t drink them too often as I am a bit sensitive to caffeine. As a result I don’t drink black teas as often as I used to, but in moderation I can still enjoy a wide variety of teas.

Oh, and I have a severe peanut allergy and try to avoid most other nuts, just to be safe. Limits my tea choices a bit, but that’s ok. However I have tried almonds and found out I can eat them, so I have been trying a few teas with them in them.
