This was an impulse buy I got at the grocery store yesterday, I really like rooibos chai blends and I thought I’d check this out.

Aside from the rooibos, it also has cinnamon, clove and ginger so to me it seemed more like a gingerbread type of tea than a strict chai. I used two teabags for a mug of tea and still thought it was a bit weak. It isn’t bad considering the price I paid for it, but next time I would use a smaller cup. I like this one better with soymilk in it. A decent tea for fall, very strong on the cinnamon and clove. Rooibos blends tend to be better when you steep them a while.

Boiling 6 min, 30 sec

Dislikes include: bergamot, jasmine, highly tannic or bitter teas, overly judgmental and bitter people. :)

Live in San Francisco, I’m a SINK (single income, no kids) and love the urban life, but traveling out to the middle of nowhere is always fun too.

I tend to not drink things I know I will hate so a lot of my tea ratings are on the higher side. Here’s my rating system, sorta

95-100 I love this tea and would like to keep it around

94-90 An excellent tea which I may or may not repurchase

89-80 Pretty good, above average

79-70 Acceptable

69-60 Mundane – Will probably drink it if I have it
