drank Chai Tea by Tetley
228 tasting notes

I got a few bags of this from my hairdresser several months ago. While visiting her I was going on and on about loose leaf tea and how much I loved it. She said, “I have this chai that’s really good. You gotta try it. Just boil it in some milk.” She pulled a bunch of these bags out and put them in a ziploc. I smiled politely and thanked her, thinking ‘hmmmmm’.

When I got home I put them aside and forgot about them. Until tonight. I wanted something easy to drink and not worry about ruining it.

I threw two bags into my red sweater nordic mug and let it steep for about 4 or 5 minutes. I was surprised at how thick the brew looked after steeping. I added cream and maple syrup. I tentatively took my first sip. Hey! It’s not bad! Not something I’d reach for on a daily basis, but in a pinch, it would do.

The spice is light, but it’s there. I have four more bags which I’ll have no problem finishing.

Yah, we have this in the house too. And the vanilla. And a couple more. My partner likes to drink them at work, she’s not into loose leaf. If I make it,she drinks it, otherwise she likes the convenience of bags and not worrying about screwing it up.

My tea journey started in 2012, when a friend gifted me some loose leaf. I guess she thought I was drinking too much coffee. Blown away by the amazing flavours I immediately embraced the loose leaf tea. I still drink coffee, but my main choice of beverage is now tea.

My tea preferences are blacks, pu’erhs, oolongs and greens.
