Well, I decided to try my Florence/Bengal Spice hybrid tonight. Brewed up 2 tsp Florence with one bag Bengal Spice in 12 oz water for 5 minutes.

Alright, this is pretty good. Initially, the tea tastes like a cinnamon infused Florence, but the chai spices are present towards the end of each sip. This really makes me want to invest in a chocolate chai, perhaps 52teas Mayan Chocolate Chai. The chocolate and spice are quite good together. I may just finish up my box of Bengal Spice this way (but maybe not since Florence in at the less-than-half a tin stage).

Ooooh looove your hybrid idea! I like Mayan Chocolate Chai w/ a french vanilla tea I have as well. And an Irish Creme tea. Good stuff! You should get it:) CAAAVE! Hehe

What an interesting idea! I just bought some Florence and the scent alone made me almost swoon. Have been waiting to brew it for a time when I can really focus. It never would have occurred to me to try it with Bengal Spice.

Bio

Formally known as mrawlins2

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
