Second steep from last night’s leaves.

There is still that kick, although not as much, it is still a great way to wake up to a holiday morning.

This tea is amazing at any time of day and night.

It is a special chai kick with a satisfying oolong flavor that gets me every time.

Second steep and still the same refreshing minty goodness with the balanced chocolaty taste. Cheers to a long weekend.

I like that it’s more refreshing than chocolately, I cannot stand the constant richness of chocolate at times.

It is well balanced once you get the right amount of tea leaves to rock sugar, so as to not convert it to hot chocolate with mint.

With the best ratio, this has turned out to be the best tea to close out today’s marathon of tea drinking at work. Cheers.

Second steep, I kind of tolerate the lighter taste, it’s not as bright and flowery, the oolong maintains it’s prominence and seems to blend better with more subtle flavors in the background.

I forgot what I thought of this tea, but the first sip since then brought back those thoughts.

It is still a strange blend, the oolong tea still flowery and bright, the fruit giving it more brightness and a sweeter tone.

I am still at odds with this, as I prefer my oolong earthy.

Second steep, as sweet and spicy as ever.

It doesn’t really lose it’s flavor the second time around like most teas, it still maintains a very equal brightness with a slight kick.

I like the White Ayurvedic Chai…

An afternoon of winter’s first blanket arrival, confined by my desk until the day’s only light fades into the November skies.

Steeping this tea always makes me forget the worst of each day, and today is no different. The air is cooling, the ground quickly covering with snow. For now, I can only sit in the comforts of my office with a cup of this wonderful chai tea to keep me warm.

Second steep certainly tones down the spices and smoky flavor.

This time around, the taste is sweeter, but I’m barely detecting any marshmallow at all.

Still, less spicy, more sweet, still smoky, still good.

This tea still has spicy chai all over it, with a complimenting smoky flavor.

The spices still overwhelm the marshmallow, here’s hoping a second steep brings that out.
