drank Awake by Tazo

After completely enjoying Tazo’s Organic Chai, I am disappointed. I guess my expectation was deep and bold flavor but like many others, I found it was highly astringent and bitter. However, I saw that someone gave it an ultra short steep and got better results, I will try that, but I am not very hopeful. Like another note I saw recently, I agree that this brand has so much potential but seems more concerned with marketing than taste.

Ok, I revisited this with a 3 minute steep this morning, still bitter. Less bitter but…I am still amazed that a flagship company can’t produce a decent black.
All that is left now is to blend with a bag of something I like and hope to drown the bitterness…

drank Holiday spice by Red Leaf Tea

I got this from a generous new friend. Had to try it out. I like the black tea flavor with hints
of spice and a bit of orange. It compares favorably to other holiday spiced teas I have tried.

I noticed more cinnamon than anything, I like cinnamon but I was expecting the other usual chai spices. That said it was enjoyable, just not what I was expecting.

drank Irish Breakfast by Twinings

Had to do a double take, this is some black tea for sure, thought I mixed up with my coffee stash during the morning haze…the depth of flavor is amazing, rich, full bodied, and hearty. Seems like a comfort tea to me, might pair well a variety of fried foods and gravy…
Oh my, hunger is affecting my note!

Last of the free samples from Joy’s Teaspoon, thanks again and now I will have to make some decisions about what to order!

Many different flavors in this green, the flowers and fruit are front row, the Jasmine is subtle but there. As with all the samples, pure Joy.

More free samples from Joy’s Teaspoon!

I enjoyed this very much, I agree a lighter Chai, not as heavy on the spice as others.
Light but still full of flavor, a good option if you want less than full spice…

Free samples from Joy’s Teaspoon arrived today! Snow on the ground, another cold evening.
Perfect conditions to try Winter Wonderland. Anise is up front, love the balance of the black tea and spice. Makes me wish Winter will hang on for a while. Come on groundhog! Don’t let me down. Thanks Joy for a great cup tonight.

Good, but not overly exciting…I guess I am partial to other British Breakfasts, there was nothing wrong with this, just more to like in others I have tried.
