drank Vanilla Chai (Organic) by DAVIDsTEA
2186 tasting notes

I drank this as a 50/50 soy milk/water latte and think chais are best steeped with milk. I liked this with milk a lot more than plain (plain I gave it a 38/100 rating before). It isn’t the best chai I have had, and the metallic licorice is really weird in it. Fennel, coriander, and anise are better chai ingredients IMO. I still have about 2 cups left, but I’m going to use it all up at once I think. It isn’t bad, and I’d drink it again if it was offered to me, but I wouldn’t buy it again. I don’t like that almost smokey base used in this blend, it adds nothing for a chai blend.

drank Apple Delicious by Love Some Tea

Green apple, a nice green base (for short steeps only-will get very astringent and bitter if you brew for 3+ minutes). Slightly creamy, fruity, natural sweetness in the base. It makes a nice coldbrew if you can get the timing correct. I found more than once I ended up getting a lot of astringency before the majority of the flavour had steeped out of the leaves.

Flavors: Fruity, Green, Green Apple, Sweet, Vegetal

I seem to be having a good tea day. All of my cups have been fantastic so far.

I drank this as a latte, so I used a bit more leaf than I normally would (2 tsp). With the soy milk is is super creamy, smooth, and decadent. The richness is mostly the spices (nutmeg) in the tea, but soy milk is relatively thick and makes the tea richer. I don’t know if there is quite enough nutmeg for me (perhaps a sprinkle of nutmeg dust on top next time) but I do enjoy this blend.

Flavors: Cinnamon, Cream, Green, Nutmeg, Spices, Sweet

Almost out of this. I will need to make another order soon. What is everyone’s favourite blend they have tried from design-a-tea?

Bio

I am a biochem major hoping for a career in research genetics and evolutionary biology. I love science fiction and spend too much of my time reading comic books. I’m a passionate keeper of spiders, cacti, and exotic plants. I eat a vegan, plant-based diet for moral and environmental reasons (I mention this only because it is relevant to which flavoured teas I drink).

I drink mostly flavoured and low caffeine teas/tisanes, but I will try anything twice. As far as pure teas go, I gravitate towards whites, yellows, and jade oolongs. I’m always open for trades and sample sales/exchanges. Message me any time :)

My cupboard on here is not up to date. See my stash spreadsheet here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1-HjWKR3um-xEnj6HC9vMvKXOAyj_bpW5u_2ixEC20-k/edit?usp=sharing
