Bought for $2.50 on amazon.ca as an add-on item that is prime eligible.

It’s ok…basic grocery story quality chai. Black base is meh, clove, ginger, pepper, fennel?, typical chai spices. It isn’t bad at all, but it tastes really boring as far as chai goes. No chocolate, but it is spicy and decaffeinated.

Flavors: Cinnamon, Clove, Fennel, Ginger, Pepper, Spices, Spicy

Preparation
195 °F / 90 °C 3 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 24 OZ / 700 ML

I don’t even know how to describe this tea. Medicinal, vanilla, a little bit of sour, mint?, spicy ginger, slightly vegetal tea as the base I think. Maybe the flavour of creamy vanilla icebreak? It is all very confusing. It is almost cool and medicinal, yet is fruity and sour, while having desserty vanilla present as well.

Flavors: Eucalyptus, Ginger, Medicinal, Sour, Vanilla

Thank you to Mackie for this sample!

Vegetal and nutty. The flavour is similar to soy beans, cooked bok choy, spinach, light sweetness. A little bit buttery. I’m not really into vegetal teas, so I can’t see myself drinking this regularly, but it was nice to try another yellow tea.

“Taiwan #1 Shan Zinxz”
I think this was from one of LP’s past events? The little baggy only had a sticker that said “Taiwan 1” on it. I think it could be a mystery sample kind of thing. I am not sure where it is from, exactly. If anyone knows anything, I’m very fond of this tea and want to buy more, so let me know.

This is a really fantastic. Strong malty, sweet, honey. After taste of grain and brown sugar. I want to say there are some suggestions of chocolate, but I’m not sure because its in the background. Lots of honey. Yeah, it smells like milk chocolate, so I’m going to say there are some chocolatey tones. More similar to a chocolate muffin or chocolate loaf rather than actual chocolates.

Flavors: Baked Bread, Brown Sugar, Chocolate, Grain, Honey, Malt, Sweet, Tea

Preparation

Profile

Bio

I think I speak for everyone here when I say tea is one of the greatest luxuries in life.

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 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 unroasted oolongs. I’m always open for trades and sample sale/exchanges. Message me any time :)

My cupboard on here is not up to date. See my stash here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1-HjWKR3um-xEnj6HC9vMvKXOAyj_bpW5u_2ixEC20-k/edit?usp=sharing
Most of these are only tiny samples/I can’t always spare any, but feel free to ask.

Favourite flavours/ingredients:
Rum, clove, cardamom, lychee, floral, milk/creamy, malt, hay, rice/grain, toasty, dessert/food flavours, cocoa/chocolate, earthy, decaf or no caffeine, very unusual flavours

Favourite tea types
Decaf teas (any variety), Yellow, Oolong, Purple (any processing method, I’m just trying to learn more about the flavour of this varietal), white, Black, Pu’erh (with no bitterness at all)

Least favourite flavours/ingredients:
Acidic fruity herbals (too much hibiscus/rosehip), sour/tart, usually melon, sometimes tangerine, grapefruit, bitter, astringent, smokey, charcoal roasted oolongs, sickly sweet (too much chicory, cinnamon, or licorice root), gunpowder, high caffeine, yerba mate, mushroom/fungus, I seem to get a stomach ache from stevia
