drank S'mores Chai by 52teas
576 tasting notes

OK, first off, you all know me to be kind of a chai snob. But I’m also a huge fan of 52Teas blends. And this is easily one of the best blends he’s created. (Here’s hoping it’s in the 12 Days of Christmas Pack. HINT HINT!) This one is right up there with Pancake Breakfast.

Opening up the bag for the first time – or after a while – and you are greeted with a hearty, warm welcome – marshmallow-y (although I believe not actual marshmallows, I think it’s OK for vegans), cinnamon, ginger, clove and peppercorn.

There’s a sweetness to it, once you take your first sip. All the flavors aforementioned in the aroma are equally identifiable in the flavor. But there is something else. Brilliancy. I taste brilliancy. This is warm and welcoming, festive, flavorful and fun.

I’m going to ration this one, else I’d use it up before the holidays!

After reading some of the comments, I must note, be very, very, very careful of steeping times. Any longer than four mins and I’m thinking you’ll lose the essence of this one.

I just bought some marshmallow cream to try with this tea… I can’t wait to see how it turns out.

Profile

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.
