This has a bite – but I like it. Seemed a bit weak on the actual flavor side, but I feel like I need to try it again.

Okay, so this time I mixed it with heavy cream and milk – so much better! I will never drink chai again without milk. Still not completely amazed by this tea, but it’s decent if done right.

This is a kick in the mouth! Very strong flavor and quite tart – it definitely benefits from sugar and could even be okay brewed with a few less leaves. Great when you need a pick-me-up.

This is fantastic with some heavy cream or milk added. Without the milk, it just seems a bit weak. Sugar and even more salt is optional and makes some interesting variations. I almost can’t call this tea – it’s something between hot chocolate and regular tea, but it sure is delicious.

Needs to be brewed stronger – I recommend 2 tsp. per 8 oz. The flavor is too light, and it makes my mouth feel sticky. Adding sugar helps.

I previously had steeped it for 2 minutes and could hardly taste it – maybe the “sticky” bitter taste is because this was oversteeped? I’ll have to try again.

A little too simple – taste is okay, but sort of like sugary water. Mixes well with others.

Interesting mix of lemongrass and citrus with coconut – great for mixing with other tea as well.

Too strong – the cinnamon takes over all other flavors, even when mixing with other teas.

One of my first experiences with earl grey, but I love it. Best with a little sugar and milk.
