3 Tasting Notes

I enjoy the spiciness of this chai. As with all my tea, a touch of sugar in the raw helps bring out its more subtle flavors and the overall effect is quite nice!

I have found that if the water is too hot or if you steep too long the leaves burn and bitter flavors will dominate the cup. So go easy and find your sweet spot. My times and temps are estimates as I’m out of stock at the moment. Your mileage may vary! :)

My first foray into a matcha and I have to say I am impressed. I wisked this until frothy and the tea has a strong earthly flavor and is silky smooth. I may have used a tad too much of the matcha so I need to experiment with it but I am impressed with the flavor. Added a very small amount of sugar in the raw to help draw out some flavors and loved it.

This is one of my absolute favorite teas. It is a great morning pick-me-up or anytime in the day. It seems more like a treat than a typical beverage.

The flavors are distinct although the ginger doesn’t always seem to come through. The aroma is fantastic, and a tough of sugar in the raw or stevia go a long way with this tea.
