I got a sample of this from Dexter3657 and unfortunately I don’t think this one is for me. I can’t quite put my finger on why but one of the spices (I believe it was the cardamom) was too strong for me liking and so it was hard to get passed that. Thank you for the sample though, Dexter3657!

:(( I have so much chai in my house. I’m going to do a chai comparison this weekend and see if I can find my “perfect” one.

That sounds like a fun way to spend the weekend. I have my family coming to visit this weekend and they have not tried any of my teas so something tells me a few dozen pots will be brewed so they can try all my different teas.

My cupboard has grown exponentially since joining this site and I have a lot to share. Feel free to snoop through my cupboard and message me if anything interests you – I am always happy to swap!

For me, flavored teas are definitely my sweet spot. I will most often reach for black teas and rooibos or honeybush blends but I do keep some flavored whites and greens around for when the mood strikes. I have a few herbals/tisanes but most of the time I find myself disappointed by them as they often smell deliciously sweet and then end up tasting tart/sour. I have a little bit of an aversion to pu’erh and oolong teas. I am also wary of florals, earl greys, and chai teas. I do not like overpowering citrus flavors nor do I usually like hibiscus, licorice or chamomile. I love dessert teas – caramel, vanilla, toffee, cookie, cream, and other sweet flavors make me smile. Fruits like strawberry, peach, mango, and pineapples will often catch my attention as well.

I have also realized that although I really enjoy adding frothed milk to some of my teas, if I do not like the tea with zero additives (just in plain water without milk or sugar), I probably won’t drink it. The one exception is flavored matchas which I will happily drink in cold milk if I do not like it mixed with hot water. My theory is if the tea can’t stand on its own then it is not for me and I will more than likely try to swap it out for something else.
