drank Chai Tea by President's Choice
709 tasting notes

In my usual OCD manner, I’ve gone overboard. Since “realizing” I had no chai, I’ve bought 1 chai-like tea, another that is def. chai and found my lovely apple vanilla white chai in the back of my cupboard, as well as these bags. Nonetheless, I still keep wanting to buy more chais. This tea buying ban is not going to go so well.

Anyway, I’ve decided to officially stick with black teas for the day, so I pulled my last chai teabag from my drawer. I’ve got more at home, so I will have to re-stock. I bought these for mulling cider, but they’re not terrible to drink either. On the lighter side of chai, though I would be interested to see if they are more spicy when prepared on stovetop with milk.

I’ve been drinking loose tea since 2010 and my tastes have changed a lot over those years. For the last few, I’ve been a fan of unflavoured Chinese blacks and shu puerh. I still drink other things, but that’s where I am.

I live in a rural area with my husband, cat, and soon to be firstborn. I love tea, reading, doctor who, knitting, crosswords, board games, the marvel universe, and lots of other things.

I’m not often rating teas numerically any more but I want to leave this to explain my past ratings:
I try to only log teas once or twice because I drink a lot of the same ones repeatedly. My rating is based on my perception of the tea at first tasting and is adjusted if anything notable occurs in subsequent cups. I may also factor in the price and customer service but try to note that when I can.

81 – 100: These are great teas, I love them, regularly stock them or savour them as unique treats.
71 – 80: These are solid. I drink them, I like them, I may or may not keep them on hand regularly. This is still good stuff.
61 – 70: Just okay. I can drink it, but it doesn’t stand out to me. Might be lower quality, not to my taste, or outside my comfort zone.
41 – 60: Not likely to keep drinking…hoping hubby will enjoy!
0 – 40: No thank you, please. Take it away and don’t make me finish the cup.
