drank Vanilla Bean Chai by Tetley
554 tasting notes

I don’t drink bagged tea anymore… and for a reason. The quality isn’t there, the flavour isn’t there, and I always end up disappointed. I’ll drink it when I’m out and about or if I’m at work, where I don’t want to leave any of my good loose-leaf, but that’s about it.

But, that being said, this tea isn’t terrible. The vanilla flavour is the main flavour. I add milk and sugar and it makes it like a sweet, creamy tea. The only thing is, the chai flavour is almost not even there. I can pick up the smallest amount of it, but it’s really not much worth even mentioning. I wish that it was stronger. I love chai.

As I’m getting closer to the end of the cup, I’m just so disappointed with this one. It really leaves me wanting to go home and make a proper cup of chai tea.

It’s definitely not one that I would own. Maybe I’m just getting too fussy… or… do I dare say it…? Maybe I’m turning into a… tea snob…? Say it ain’t so! But I think it is! I won’t say snob… maybe just a tea connoisseur of sorts? Or maybe I just like the quality loose-leaf has to offer :)

I’m a 30-something-year-old aspiring writer. I’ve written several short stories that I’m looking to get published someday soon.

I work as a paginator (I do page layout for our local weekly newspaper) and absolutely love it! I’m also an amateur photographer.
I’m the proud mommy of two sweet little boys! One born Feb. 3/15. He showed up 4.5 weeks early, but thankfully after a week in the hospital he’s great now. :)
The second one came just Monday evening at only 2 weeks early so he’s healthy and perfect!
Life just got so much more busy and crazy but I’m so excited.
I’m married to an absolute amazing man who “puts up” with my tea obsession.

It wasn’t until a few years after high school that I finally became interested in tea. I started with Orange Pekoe double double (milk not cream), and peppermint. Since that time, I’ve really opened up to other kinds of tea and I’ve well… I’ve kind of just went nuts since then.

I don’t drink much bagged tea anymore. It’s mostly loose leaf in my cupboard. The only except are a couple that were given to me and they sound too good!

I would have to say my favourite kinds are (in no particular order): black, herbal, white and rooibos (definitely prefer the green to red, but will drink the red too).

Green teas, pu’erh, and matcha are starting to grow on me but I’m very picky about them still. I am finding I like pu’erh tea cakes much better than loose. And with matcha I much prefer flavoured ones over straight.

I still don’t really care for mate teas but there a couple that are the exception to that.

I drink tea every single day. I absolutely love it. I can’t image my life without it.

I don’t log every time I drink a tea as I don’t want to spam everyone with tons of duplicate loggings, but I will log when I have a new tea, which happens on a regular basis and when I do a SIPDOWN! :D
