This tea is labeled as a “chai” even though it is more like one of those holiday orange spice blends than what you might expect with a typical chai. It’s more like one of those red-hot cinnamon type of teas.

Which I don’t mind at all, because I love those. It has a prominent cinnamon flavor with a backdrop of cloves, and the orange is very subtle. Mostly what I tasted from the orange is a bright, citrus-y note but nothing really distinct that says ORANGE.

The black tea isn’t completely overpowered by the spices here, and I like that. This is a good tea for chilly mornings – I know we probably aren’t getting a whole lot of those lately, but every once in a while here in the pacific northwest the day starts out cold and overcast. This is the kind of tea that helps me mentally cut through those clouds.

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!
