I’m surprised they can call it Thai tea without any black tea in it… I just went and looked it up and it does indeed have black tea. Generally a Ceylon but sometimes Assam is used. According to the Wiki. I’d be very tempted to try this with the thai tea I have.

Regardless this is still pretty good. Not quite chai and not quite thai but it does have the flavors of both. Creamy and slightly spicy.

Edit: So curiosity got the best of me and I brewed a tea bag with this tea. Turned out better then I expected. Bet it would be pretty good with some nice frothy almond milk too.

The Thai tea mix I usually buy is made with green tea, though I would have guessed black without looking at the ingredients list.

Smells good. Kinda like that fake powdered apple cider drink. The taste… meh. Too much chamomile. The color is lovely though.

Started off ok. Just your cheap tasting plain green. Within a few minutes it started tasting odd. Couldn’t finish it. The hotel we layover at just started carrying this brand.

Eating at Jensens with my husband’s family. Hadn’t had any tea yet so I needed to get some. Luckily they are pretty savvy with their tea here. It’s a light mango flavor. Can’t tell what the base is.

I’ve like this one the best thus far. I’m surprised that the blueberry flavor comes through as well as it does. It smells quite a bit of bergamot when I opened the bag but surprisingly I do not taste any. For a blueberry tea it is good but overall nothing amazing.

I wish this wasn’t called River song. It brings back memories of the pond study I did back in highschool. Which isn’t all bad except that there was always this gross pond scum smell in the pods because we had to go mucking about in the lakes. Anyway… you need all that to understand that I am kinda tasting that smell as I drink this. Bits of coconut and woodsy ceylon base. But overall not really a blend I like. If you want a good coconut chai try Zhena’s Gypsy tea.

Have you ever eaten strawberries and cream oatmeal? This smells EXACTLY like that. But with a tiny hint of chocolate. It kinda tastes like that too expect with chocolate added. At first it was tasting good but as it’s cooled down I am not liking it as much. It’s better warmer.

This reminds me of the Rooibos Chai I get from Trader Joe’s. This is a good blend of honeybush, rooibos, and ceylon. It has a nice spicy kick that some chais fail to reach

A very interesting taste for a unique blend of ingredients. Also an odd color in my cup. I’m glad the hibiscus isn’t quite as strong as I thought it was going to be. The vanilla adds a nice touch. Now I’m going to go to the store with my daughter and get ear wax removal drops because this is driving me crazy and going to work like this would make me crabby.

Nothing too spectacular about this tea. My first couple of sips were better then my last few. Perhaps it’s better hot. Also think i need to steep it for just a bit longer.

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.
