So, I steeped this in a frothy water-and-milk mixture today, and it was way better than steeped in regular water. Sweet and creamy, like a breakfast tea, with butter and maple notes. I haven’t had good luck with 52teas so far but this one is pretty good
39 Tasting Notes
This tea reminds me vaguely of pumpkin chai, in that the cinnamon flavor is really gross, like it rotted, almost. I’ve made this several times, and even with sweetener I can’t choke down a full cup.
No notes yet.
This DOES taste like flowers, and not in a good way. I love lychees. I have lychee juice in my fridge (which I mixed with the tea to try and make it taste better). I was hoping this would be really, really good, and it just wasn’t.
I like the warmth the peppercorns add, but this is a pretty bland chai. Nothing special going on. Not nearly spicy enough.
I love maple, and this tea really packs a flavorful punch. I worry about the maple candies in it, though. I don’t see how it can possibly be 0-calorie.
With milk and sweetener (yes, I do put sweetener in everything) this reminds of drinking maple milk as a kid, at the maple sap tapping place near my house.
My rating would be higher, but after drinking it a while, this tea tends to make me nauseous. I don’t know why. Maybe the rooibos? I like rooibos though.
I love everything sweet and creamy, so the natural sweetness and pleasant creaminess of this tea are perfect in my mind. Plus, 50 grams of it stuffs the bag full. I’ve gotten at least 10 pots out of the bag, and I still have some left.
If you don’t like chamomile, you won’t like this. It’s a pretty strong flavor in there.
I’m drinking this tea right now. I hope it will give me the energy to write the massive number of tea reviews I’ve fallen behind on.
It’s a good chai. I really like super-strong chais, and this is stronger than, say, DT’s Saigon Chai, which is nice. I forgot to ask them when I was in the store yesterday which chai they made was the absolute strongest. Whoops.
When I make chai for myself, from scratch, I brew up black tea, then I dump in obnoxious amounts of chinese five spice and cardamom. Usually I end up with a big clump of spices at the bottom.
I was drinking this, trying to figure out what’s missing, and then it hit me: no cardamom. To me, cardamom is what makes a good chai. So I stirred some in. If I bought a bag of this, I might throw some cardamom pods in with the loose tea. Maybe crush them first (which is what I do with big spices in tea).
This is a pretty good tea though
this is the first tea from the advent calendar i would actually buy. well, this time of year, anyway. green & fruity might be good for summer. but i digress.
this tea is delicious. it’s my first pu’erh and i will definitely try more.
I don’t understand what so many people hate about this tea. It’s amazing, sweet, creamy, and delicious. I really love rooibos though.
Meh. Too spinachy for me. I’m not a green tea lover though. I did manage to blend it without lumps, though. On my first try. So that’s something. With a generous helping of sugar it’s drinkable.
This tea is just ok. It’s very bitter to me and I have to add a ton of sweetener to bring it up to a drinkable flavor.
I really thought I would love this tea. I love pumpkin and I love chai. But no amount of milk or sweetener could save it. The flavor was musty – the best I can describe it as is rotten cinnamon. Makes me sad.
This tea is disgusting straight. The first couple times I tried it, I had no idea what I was doing wrong. But add some milk and sugar and it transforms into a sweet, warm butterscotch that is really, really good.
This tea is sooo good. It’s light and creamy and flowery and wonderful. Probably my favorite oolong out there. Delicious and not heavy at all.
