When I first saw this was part of the January Steepster Select box, I was a little disappointed. Don’t get me wrong, I love chai and I LOVE Yogic Chai, but, I thought that I had tried this one already. And while I have tried a BUNCH of Yogic Chai’s blends, I haven’t tried their original… so, no longer disappointed! Instead, I’m really thrilled to finally be trying the original after having tried the other blends.

And this one is so good. Nice balance of spices, not too spicy, not too mild… but just right. The Assam does not taste bitter, it is strong and malty and makes a very smooth base for these spices. Yum! I took my first few sips without additions, then added a bit of turbinado sugar, and then made a latte… I like it all three ways, but my favorite is with just a little turbinado sugar. The spices are stronger; I think that the milk in the latte sort of mutes the flavor just a bit. Still delicious and warming, though!

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I no longer write for the SororiTea Sisters but I am still the admin for the blog.


The reason I’m no longer writing for SororiTea Sisters is because I am now the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas:


I’ll still be posting occasional reviews on teas here on Steepster, mostly backlogged reviews because I’m way behind on getting reviews posted. That’s why I’m keeping two accounts active at the current time – so that I can get those backlogged reviews posted.


My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination, which is why I was very excited to be the Mad Tea Artist of 52Teas!
