drank Chai Ultra Spice by Twinings
24 tasting notes

Chai Ultra Spice is only ultra gingery to my taste, and not ultra spicy, possibly because they didn’t put in any black pepper. They claim there is cardamom in there, but you could have fooled me, I didn’t taste it at all. Also, I looked at the ingredients list, and I’d really like to know what “natural chai flavour” is. Last I checked, “chai” means tea, and I seriously doubt it is natural tea flavor they’re talking about.

But, that said, if you’re looking for a bagged tea that tastes like liquid gingersnaps when appropriately doctored up with sweetener and milk, this is the tea for you. Even though it wasn’t the ultra spicy chai I was hoping for, it was pretty decent anyway.

Profile

Bio

I’m a stay-at-home mom in Western MA who loves cooking, baking, gardening, reading, writing poetry, and tea!

I prefer drinking loose leaf teas for flavor and a more satisfying tea experience, but end up drinking bagged tea at least half of the time for convenience’s sake.

I like iced tea in the summer, spiced tea in the winter, and a good earl grey any time. Chocolate teas are nice, since cocoa tends to upset my tummy. I also enjoy some herbal teas, and I look forward to someday growing herbs for tea in my garden. I despise rooibos. And Celestial Seasonings Sleepytime is the only way I’ll drink chamomile.
