Holy crap, Teavana is discontinuing this blend! I ordered one last mix for my stock pile, and I guess I’ll have to explore making chai blends again. This was my favorite for so long…

“I’m offended on so many different levels.” To quote the hilarious Jim Gaffigan

Seriously, though, I drink this the most. WTF Teavana!? You are losing a customer. Oh, they don’t really care.

Please see previous notes as this is a FAVE!

LiberTEAS

This was one of their better combinations, the few times that I’ve visited their shop this is the sample that I’d want to try. I was really frustrated with them though, that they wouldn’t sell it to me in a 2 ounce increment. So I never bought it, only sampled the overly sugared batch that they offered to walk-in customers.

CupofTree

Seriously? This was one of the very few blends I liked at teavana. Thats just retarded.

Ze_Teamaker

ahah, I love Jim Gaggigan. “Hoooot Pooooocket”

@Ze_Teamaker: Jim Gaffigan’s Hot Pocket sketch kills me every time I hear it. “Hey I got an idea! How ’bout we take some nasty meat, shove it into a Poptart…you could cook it in a sleeve thing.” Have you seen him live? Worth every penny.

KeenTeaThyme

@LiberTEAS and Cup of Tree – totally and completely agree! And yes not getting it in a smaller size was annoying…

Ze_Teamaker

No sadly. I think he is either going to be near me soon or it already happened. I have had the privileged of seeing Lewis Black live though. He even got to met him after the show!

DaisyChubb

Jim Gaffigan! He’s my pale hero :D

Both teas are still available! The sample has just changed to Maharaja Chai Oolong and Samurai Chai Mate. But you can still get the White Ayurvedic Chai!

Bio

Hello fellow tea fans!
I’ve been a tea enthusiast for years but just recently started brewing my own. I’ve created some blends, and enjoy researching about new teas. I combined my love of tea and writing to create a tea-devoted blog, Keen Tea Thyme. I have been writing for most of my life and am a former journalist with a degree in Communications and Social Psychology, and a minor in Writing. Journalism is in my blood, so that means I’m inquisitive by nature, will double-check sources and/or get a second opinion as needed, but also fair and balanced in my reviews. If my reviews seem more positive, energetic and have high ratings, it’s because I love tea. :)

If you are a tea company, I’d love to review some your tea! Free samples are always welcome so I can fully enjoy the freshest selections. I’m also open to tea swaps as I always have too many teas on hand to drink & would love to share with other tea enthusiasts! :)

My Simple Rating Scale (as of Feb. 2011)
>50: I’m NOT a fan. I could barely finish the cup, if I even did. I wouldn’t even recommend this to my worst enemy. Not worth my time nor yours.

51-65: Good aroma, good flavor. Just nothing pops to give the tea that special kick. Recommended to try; our tasting palates differ.

66-79: Yes, finally, tea – unique flavor profiles, great aroma & flavor. Recommended to try; our tasting palates differ.

80-99: These are cupboard essentials – delicious, aromatic and perfect everyday teas. Re-steepable (beyond at least one steeping). Highly recommended, fun for all ages.

100: These are my favorites, the ones I would take with me if stranded on a desert island. Beyond Highly Recommended.
