Last tea of my bagged chai trio!
This one has an obvious rooibos scent, but thankfully the sour wood note is not present in the taste. I would say this tea is very balanced in the spices department and the rooibos seems to add a natural sweetness to the cup. I’ve gone through an entire tin of this now and I’m still not sure how much I actually like it. I do think this is a rooibos done correctly (for me, that is a rooibos that doesn’t taste like rooibos). I wouldn’t go out of my way to get more of this one, but I would probably pick some up if I ran across it.

None of my chai trio teas have been typical chais and I’m still not sure that I need to have any of them constantly in stock. So perhaps this experiment has been a failure since the point was to pick the one I really liked….a big, tasty failure. I still think the best chai I’ve had was RoT’s Green Chai, although I’m sure there are better ones out there.

I am a former coffee drinker turned tea lover.

Black tea is probably my favorite type of tea, but I rather enjoy most types… I’m even developing a taste for pu-erh.

Rating Scale:
0-10: This tea is either flavorless or just plain undrinkable. I will avoid these teas in the future.

11-20: I was only able to make it through a few sips before pouring the tea out.

21-30: I may have been able to make it through the first cup but the thought of having another has me cringing.

31-40: Teas in this range are not horrible, but nothing I would seek out in the future.

41-60: Would drink if offered, but would not purchase for myself.

61-70: Okay, nothing special

71-80: Enjoyable, but I have to be in the mood for these. Probably would purchase if I found a really great price.

81-90: Pretty good tea, will probably be one of my favorites.

91-95: These teas are really excellent. I wouldn’t necessarily run out and buy more of these (just because there are so many teas out there that I haven’t tried), but I would miss this tea.

96-99: Terrific, very impressive.

100: This special rating is reserved for teas that are absolutely perfect in my opinion. I will only give out a rating of 100 to one tea per category (Earl Grey, unflavored black, dessert tea, Irish Breakfast, etc). These are teas that I really want to have around.

Perfect Teas so Far:

Earl Grey: Saint Isaac’s Blend (Russian Earl Grey) from Upton

Dessert Tea: Marco Polo from Mariage Freres

Unflavored Black: Emperor’s Red from Premium Steap
