Chai Tea is my go to at coffee shops and breakfast joints, especially if they have a good one. Making chai at home is an adventure I am still pretty new at. It’s complicated, finicky, and messy. The outcome is god though, and with more practice, I think I could make a pretty good cup of chai, and even an acceptable chai latte.
This specific chai is not bad. A little on the spicy side, as it probably should be. The brew itself I need more practice with, but with time I think this could turn out to be a great mix.
Flavors: Cardamon, Cinnamon, Cloves, Ginger, Peppercorn
Jet black needles with bits of gold. Pretty. I am guessing that it is a DianHong Gong Fu cha, or Yunnan Gold. The tea steeps up red brown. Punchy—good hit of malt, dark cocoa, and lingering muscatel sweetness. A bit bewildering for my tastebuds—like a mega Darjeeling crossed with an intense Yunnan black. I am currently on steep four and it appears to still be going strong.
Flavors: Dark Bittersweet, Dark Chocolate, Honey, Muscatel, Sweet Potatoes

I just found this bag in my tea cabinet, and made a small pot last week. It’s been a while since I’ve had a pot of tea, I’ve been having an afternoon coffee almost exclusively for the past couple of years. I had forgotten how wonderful this tea is with some raw sugar and a bit of cream or 1/2&1/2. I went to the Mighty Leaf website to order more, and was sad to find it’s no longer available. I’m on the hunt for a replacement chocolate tea.
Making myself a cup of this on my break from Spinzilla spinning. As always, drinking it with milk, since I think that enhances and supports the vanilla flavor, which is in line with what I’m looking for right now: a nice, comforting, reliable cup to relax with, since I still have a long way to go today before the to-do list feels like I’ve done it justice.
Still trying to get back into the swing of things after Irma. This Orchid Oolong arrived a few days after the hurricane passed, while I was still in the midst of cleanup, and I’ve been waiting to do a tasting note until I feel I can give it my full attention. Well, today still isn’t that day, but I’m drinking it anyway, because sometimes, mood trumps ability.
Steeped a slightly rounded teaspoon of leaves in 9ish ounces of water about 10 seconds off the boil, 4 minutes.
Dry scent: Cool, deep, fairly complex. Sort of sweet and bitter at the same time, with varying notes. At times a chocolatey scent comes through, or a zesty fruity scent, or the oolong base, or a faint cream underlaid by sharpness. Reminds me of a cool, damp, shady tropical forest, with mossy rocks and hanging plants.
Scent of steeped tea: Lighter than the dry scent, slightly creamy, with oolong sweetness and an underlying cool earthiness.
Taste: Would it sound odd to say this tastes like light amber? A light, refreshing oolong flavor overlaid by a touch of caramel and a veil of pale flowers, not much depth. Pleasant and drinkable, but not remarkable.
Five years ago I had a sample pouch of this that I remember being intriguingly delicious, and there are multiple reviews on the Mighty Leaf site that sound like they’re of the same tea I had then: unexpectedly floral, silky, full-bodied, addictive. I wish this tea were that tea.
Flavors: Caramel, Flowers
I weighed part of my cupboard the other day though I still have about 1/3 of my cupboard to go. Consequently I decided if I drink the teas I haven’t weighed yet, it would be less work and since I haven’t weighed the teas from Evol Ving Ness (or even finished adding them all to my cupboard) I decided to pull some teas from there.
The box is full of chais it seems which worked well today since I wanted to make a latte and chais make for good lattes. However, weirdly enough, I ended up making this tea instead of one of the many chais and I am blaming the power of persuasion since the bag said it was better as a latte.
It’s an alright blend and definitely has some spices which make for a nice latte. I’m getting cinnamon and ginger but also a fair amount of anise, which I don’t love. There is also a fruity element so I can certainly see how this is a holiday blend. It is not my favorite but I can see the appeal as a holiday blend and Evol’s latte recommendation was appreciated. As was the share. Thank you Evol for sending a sample my way!
Leaves of Provence by Mighty Leaf is a powerful blend, having the ability to energise with caffeine and mint, yet calm and relax through the properties of lavender, which is known to be a dominating flavour. Fortunately, its inclusion in Leaves of Provence is just right, providing a soothing scent and subtle flavours. Whenever I drank this, I would daydream of laying in European sun, closing my eyes and letting the aromas dilute my actual surroundings. However, the taste doesn’t quite narrate the south of France for me, the crisp, herby notes navigating my senses a little further afield, to the likes of Italy. Then again, I have yet to visit Provence, so perhaps I just need to be more travelled to make the connection! Who knows!? Have you been to Provence? What would your Provencal mix contain?
Flavors: Citrus, Lavender, Malt, Mint
Soggy, soggy Fourth in Missouri. Fingers crossed that the monsoon will continue through the evening. As posted elsewhere, my apologies to the fireworks lovers, but I have to work tomorrow.
Actually got a little chilled…spent a bit of time at the farm with my dad and sister; he’s 87 with mild dementia, can’t hear a lick; you have to condense your communication to five word sentences and YELL EVERYTHING. Twice. And then drove home in a toad-strangler, threw a windshield wiper blade, got soaked running into a Walmart to buy a replacement so we could see our way home.
So a little warm gentleness was in order to soothe body and soul. Watching a parent fade away isn’t easy. This did the trick. Nice cherry-to-green ratio if you watch your water temperature. The cherry isn’t fake-syrupy. I think I could use another cup.
As Rosehips so gracefully put it, I whoopsed yesterday and overdosed on tea and pastry shopping. (There is currently Krispy Kreme and cherry strudel and tiramisu under my roof simultaneously. Don’t judge. )
..but we don’t have a Fresh Market nearby, so when we’re in NW Arkansas, we go a little nuts.
So this box just sorta jumped into my cart. (My husband made it jump.) It’s a nice, gentle little flavored tea; treated with care, you can coax a goodly amount of cherry out of it. A second steep treated with much less care made a decent cuppa chilled, but it had a bite. Nice and springy.
Slightly bitter black base, a bit of earthiness, slight sweetness, a tiny bit of fruit. I steeped 3 min in 80 deg C water and tasted a lot more bitterness and astringency than expected. Maybe hotter water and a shorter steep time? It was pretty meh.
Flavors: Astringent, Bitter, Fruity, Sweet, Tannic
So I have tried this tea twice once black and once with 1 sugar and milk and both times I found the tea odd. There is a strange flavor to the tea almost as if the orange flavor and vanilla notes are competing with each other and makes the tea very off putting. Humpf and I was looking forward to a nice cuppa.
This is a very strong Chamomile tea and if I am being honest my mom always gave me Chamomile tea when I had an upset stomach so maybe its bring up bad memories. I don’t like this tea much at all, very strong Chamomile with rosehip peel. I wish I tasted some of the spearmint or orange flavoring but alas I did not! Thank God this was from a sample pack!
