drank Empress Chai by Queen Mary Tea
2260 tasting notes

Saved the last tiny portion of this from the tea box. When I smelled and first tasted it, it reminded me of a weaker hot cinnamon sunset from Harney. As it cooled, my opinion has changed. It definitely has that familiar cinnamon flavor, but it also has greater complexity from its other ingredients. I’m pretty tired of hot cinnamon sunset since I find it one-dimensional, but I could drink this empress chai again and again. Too bad there was only one cup’s worth in the box! I mostly avoid chai these days since I usually find them boring and unremarkable, but I’m happy to say that this tea is quite a good one.

I’m an event planner who always has multiple mugs of tea beside me. Hobbies other than tea include board games, video games, cooking international dishes, science fiction, hiking, jigsaw puzzles, tap dancing, reading, listening to podcasts, and playing with my troublesome kitties.

Favorite flavors: dessert flavors, nutty, melon, mint, strawberry, anything rooibos-related.

Don’t prefer: Smoky, rosemary, savory flavors, floral (other than lavender), plain tea.

I always drink flavored tea, and preferably caffeine-free or black. I’ll try just about anything though! Let me know if you’re interested in a swap!

My ratings are kind of meaningless, but basically
90-100 pretty perfect
80-89 really good
70-79 good, but not the best
60-69 okay, but probably not for me
1-59 varying degrees of dislike
