As LiberTEAs mentioned yesterday with the review of her tea from Uniq – they got in touch with The SororiTEA Sisters who are made up of the two of us and our girl Azzrian to blend a series of 3 custom teas as well as review them!

The Tri Pi Chai was the one I blended thru their wonderful service!
(Therefore I will not rate my own blend)

You can find this blend here
http://www.uniqteas.com/products/sororiteas-tri-pi-chai#ixzz2DRbhkaPT

It’s made up of:
70% White Chai / 15% Caramelicious / 15% Raspberry

I wanted to do a Chai but not a ‘regular’ chai. I’ve always been intrigued by WHITE Chai’s – I can’t really explain why but I like them and like the tinker with them. This was the very first thought I had when I saw that as an option on their site!

But I also wanted both WHITE and BLACK Teas in them. I didn’t want the black tea to over power the white, tho. BUT…I did want to taste both. Most of the other attempts I have tried with the black and white combined you can’t taste the white…so…fingers crossed!

I also wanted this to be just a little sweet and a tad fruity so that is why I went with a little bit of the caramel and raspberry combo-ed offerings!

I wanted to try infusing this a 1 minute or under FIRST so that is what I did.

Here are my findings:

First…the DRY leaf aroma – right from the tin – smells like white tea, gentle spices, raspberries, citrus, a pinch of sugary and I am chalking that up to the caramel, as well as a little woodsy. It has some interesting yin and yang or masculine and feminine type aromas to it. I like how the opposites seem to attract in this!

This blend – at 1 minute or under – infuses to a medium brown color with a neat copper glow.

To the nose – the liquor smells warming, comforting, mellower, and slightly fruity, floral, and woodsy…all at the same time! WOW! How different…but that is what I was HOPING for!!!

Now the taste…

“Oh…WOW!” were the first two words that came out of my mouth! WHITE TEA! YAY! But there was MORE to it!

It has a nice white tea flavor up front that is mellower but still pushing thru and noticeable. The Chai Spices are subtle and I am ok with that! I didn’t want them to over power! The white tea also provides an interesting floral flavor working with the spices or maybe just a tad more than the spices. The Caramel is also hiding out in the background and does contribute an oh-so-small-hint of sweetness to possibly tone down the floral flavor. More importantly – I think the Caramel assists with the texture and gives it a nice creaminess to the middle of the sip. However, as it continues to cool at room temperature I can taste the caramel more and I like it! I also think the black tea working with the caramel works well, here, again, I didn’t want it to overpower the white and I really don’t think it did. YAY! Also as it cools the Raspberry started to come out to play more and it’s really welcoming and fun! It’s just enough to make you say “What’s that? Fruit!?” So, yeah, I guess I just really wanted this to be complex…but I wanted it to be interesting and diverse, but jive in it’s own certain way. Just like a Sorority I guess. So far…I think this reached those things.

I named this Tri Pi Chai for a few reasons! One being…The SororiTEA Sisters are made up of 3 Tea Lovin’ Sista’s…Liberteas, Azzrian, and myself. We are all different but we all love tea and we all work well together. I also named this Tri Pi Chai to do a little Play on Words to work hand-in-hand with SororiTEA Sisters. Also because I used 3 different offerings Uniq Teas offered.

The more I drink this the more I like it and as it cools the flavors dance around and become more youthful and seem to morph at different temperatures…very neat!

I will experiment with this at different temperatures but I am really liking it with a shorter infusion time, so far.

Special THANKS to Uniq Teas for this awesomely-fun opportunity!

This is really tasty!

I like that the white tea is prominent, and it tastes sweet and creamy but has a delicateness to it. The black tea is there, but not overwhelming. I would liken it to a resteeped black … what you might taste if you resteep black tea leaves twice … the flavor is still there but a bit paler than what you’d experience with that first infusion.

I really like how all the components of this blend come together in the cup. It’s a little bit spicy, a little bit sweet, a little bit tart, and a whole lot of tasty! Watch for my full-length review of this on SororiTea Sisters, it will be published on the 14th.

Full Review on http://sororiteasisters.com/on the 23rd but here are the snippits:

Sororitea’s Tri Pi Chai from UniqTeas is really something different when it comes to a chai tea.

The raspberry and caramel seem to give more of a sweet, yet fresh backdrop and do not drown out the tea leaf itself.

The raspberry and caramel seem to give more of a sweet, yet fresh backdrop and do not drown out the tea leaf itself. I seem to taste the raspberry’s fresh tartness and liveliness more than the caramel which to me just seems to make the cup creamy more than flavored, yet adds to the sweetness which is nice.

Sil

mmmmm caramel and raspberry…

Azzrian

It is a very interesting chai blend!

Thanks so much TeaEqualsBliss for allowing me to be the first outside the Sororitea Sisters to try this blend, via the traveling tea box. It certainly sounds like an amazing combination of things. I was guessing on the steep temp and time though, since it’s a white tea but also a chai and black tea. So I probably didn’t steep this one correctly. It all seems to meld together well. It definitely tasted more white tea than black. The steep color looks more like a white tea too. A bit spicy, but not too much caramel or raspberry. I like it though.

The spice to the white chai remind me of Christmas! As soon as I take a sip it’s just like I’m hit with a taste that reminds me of Christmas when I was a kid…I’m not sure what it is…but man those were the best Christmases, I’m straight into remembering Polly Pocket.

As it cools it becomes stronger and I just kind of feel like I am drinking cologne, like something in there got incredibly woodsy so that’s what I’m getting with the blend of spices and what seems to be the caramel.

So this is a pretty aromatic tea, as you can see. Haha before that point I quite enjoyed it, definitely something that needs to be hot, but I imagine if you just went straight to it being cold it might not be so bad…lukewarm, just nope.

From the LiberTEAS sampler I bought a while back

This is a delightfully odd tea…there’s a berry high note that swoops down into a warm chai base; between the two there’s an interplay of sweetness and spice that I find rather wonderful on first taste.

The front berry notes don’t taste like any berry in particular…more like generic “berry,” if that makes any sense. There’s a bit of an astringent dryness that sits at the end, but the well-settled, mellow spicyness really makes up for it.

Although I like this tea I must admit that the longer I drink it the more convinced I am that it’s not a favourite. It seems a little undecided in terms of flavours and I’d almost rather it put some effort into being an awesome berry tea or an awesome chai instead of just being good at both.

It’s a good tea to drink while you’re doing something else, but not one I’d want to drink on my own. Steadfastly mediocre, it seems.

I made a cup of this after listening to the man upstairs beat up his gf for the thousandth time, after I called 911 for the thousandth time. I really needed something comforting, and this did the trick. It really just tasted like a milder version of the chai I am used to (black tea based), with less cinnamon and more natural sweetness. I liked it, particularly for a summer evening, but normally I prefer to essentially be swept away by cinnamon overload.

I received this sample from the Tea and Card TTB. Thanks! I didn’t really know what to expect from the description but I guess I expected something with a bit of chai. Didn’t really taste any chai at all. I taste the black tea but it’s not overwhelming. It has an astringent but not bitter aftertaste. I can’t really taste much of anything distinctly. I used the brewing directions on the packet: 1.5 tsp/cup, 170 for 4 min. I’m sorry to say that I’m not enjoying it.
