1011 tasting notes

I have been wanting to make chai for the past couple of weeks so I went ahead and ordered a pouch of this since it is one of the most balanced chai blends I’ve tried. This morning I made a big stovetop batch of this and wow!! It is super spicy, but super good! The chocolate is stronger than I expected, but still not as strong as the spices. I bet adding a bit of my favorite dark chocolate creamer would be awesome with this tea! The cayenne kick is just what I needed to help me wake up today!

I’ve never made this stove top, but I agree w/ your comments and your score. Frank said the other day he wants to get into making high end instant chais one day. I hope he does it w/ this… or even a chocolate free version. I’d love to be able to keep the cayenne aspect and then add as much chocolate as I want.

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
