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.

Second slice of pie this morning, second steep of this tea.

It is surprisingly richer in flavor than the first steep, which makes me wonder why that is, as it is the same tea leaves from the first steep.

The pumpkin and spices are brighter, the pie flavor is more prominent.

It’s strange, but I like odd surprises.

OK, so I accepted that this tea will not be as spicy as your typical chai. Upon that, this is quite a tea to start your morning. Despite the increasing loss of spice and pie flavor, the pumpkin has kept it’s consistency in every steep, making this acceptable.

The creamy flavor of pie has come into its own now that it has been steeped more in a more open space, I feel the taste has time to breathe as it is cooling, and stays consistent throughout the glass.

Something special I might add, as I finish the first cup, the last few sips reward me with a sweet and buttery flavor.

This tea is fantastic!

The flavor is quite relaxing when you are in the middle of a hectic day.

The creamy goodness of pie is a joy to sink into between urgent inquiries and phone calls, the coconut drifting you away to relaxing tropical places.

Not as spicy as the first time, nor as much pumpkin.

It’s odd, but the pumpkin and the pie are there, only separated, and it doesn’t work at all.

Quite disappointing, as the first steep gave quite a surprise.
