Had to cold steep this one because there are no ceramic cups in the room. I’m tempted to try it hot later and see if the flavor improves but generally I find that most tea I cold steep are a bit stronger … this one is pretty lite. Not enough ‘spice’ to it for a chai. And I’m not entirely fond of the flavor. It leaves a weird aftertaste in my opinion.

drank Thai Chai by Adagio Teas

This tea has me stuck in a rut. It has a slight flavor reminiscent more of thai cooking then it does of thai tea. Which I was kinda hoping for thai tea but I feel like I should be eating this with a thai dish. It needs a bit more of a kick for it to be considered a chai in my thoughts. Otherwise its good.

To be honest I think it sounds better then it tastes. It’s somewhat tart, a bit lemony and not very raspberryish. I feel more like I’m drinking an herbal then a black as I taste no black base.

Trying brewed hot first. Though after reading some comments while waiting for it to steep I kinda wish I had just done cold. So far I agree that it is nothing special when its hot. In fact its kinda mediocre hot. As it starts to cool off the flavor is improving. A bit of honey would really make it great!

When you come across a tea like this it truly makes you thankful to those who picked it. It’s a refined and truly noble tea. One can almost see a king sitting on his throne and drinking this. It goes down smoothly like a bourbon. The roasted, slightly nutty flavor is just amazing. I have to confess though I’m not one who generally drinks darker oolongs but ones like this truly need to be tasted to be appreciated.
Try this both hot and cold. It is enjoyable either way.

1 tsp

Gorgeous color. Not really a fan of the flavor its a mix of eating orange blood zest and fruit loops. I just can’t stand the fake flavors of fruit loops anymore.

Preparation
8 min or more 1 tsp

drank Minty Creme Brulee by Tealated

Sorry… this is a big no for me. I was excited because I love creme brulee but this is a rooibos power trip. With a side of mint. As far as sweetness goes, honestly, there really isn’t any. Sorry just not my … cuppa

Blueberry torte? More like Blueberry TART!!! It’s so tart! It’s like a punch in the face. Though it starts out tart and ends sweet which is nice. I did a cold brew so maybe that affected the flavors a bit. Steeped it for around an hour. Lots of blueberry flavor.

Flavors: Blueberry

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more 2 tsp

Where to being… well, I’ve been drinking jasmine tea for a long time. It still remains a favorite of mine but I’ve now added any more.

Green teas are my favorite. I like black tea but generally prefer it flavored. I’m finding a new love for oolong. Especially the type that leans more toward green. Whites are nice. Rooibos can be a hit or miss, but honeybush is better. (Golden Honeydew by Lupicia is the best). I don’t mind herbals but it really depends on the ingredients.
