I feel uncomfortable writing about chai, as I have practically no experience with the stuff. This is my third cup ever. Once was in an Indian restaurant (and that was amazing). The second time was with this stuff. I made it myself (didn’t follow any proper steeping techniques), I added oat milk and no sweetner, and I hated it. This time I tried vanilla soy milk (a bit too much actually), and steeped it correctly (well, as close to correctly without a thermometer) and it was really really good.

I recognize the cardamom, but beyond that, I find the flavors blend together, and are bit masked from my overabundance of soy milk. I will have to try some other chais to compare, because I am SOLD on this stuff now!

Bio

I’ve been drinking tea off and on for a few years, but only in the last year have I started to test out loose leafs, and expand my taste buds.

I consider myself very new to the world of teas, especially when it comes to properly steeping, and knowing much about what certain teas are supposed to be like.

After discovering there was more to tea than Red Rose OP, I have traditionally tended to drink mint teas and similar herbals (but no fruity ones), red rooibos, honeybush, and the occasional matte. I’ve only recently discovered white teas and oolongs, which I really enjoy.

I’m expanding my knowledge, trying new teas, and just starting to learn about temperature/steep times, etc.

0: I don’t even want to taste it.
1-10: I can’t finish the cup.
11-30: I’ll finish my cup, but that’s it.
31-50: I will drink it until I’ve used it all up, or find someone to give it to. It’s ok, but it’s not something I tend to reach for.
51-70: I enjoy it enough to reach for it specifically, but I won’t get it again.
71-80: I enjoy it quite a bit. I would recommend it to others.
81-90: I would definitely buy again, but it’s not my favorite.
91-100: The creme de la creme
