drank Coconut Chai by Pretty Tea
247 tasting notes

I received a sample of this in a recent swap. Normally the word “chai” is enough to dissuade me from trying a tea. Spicy teas, we just don’t mesh well. I took a quick glance at the ingredients and didn’t notice the list of the usual chai spices, only ginger and cinnamon. I love all things coconut and I don’t mind ginger or cinnamon in small doses, so I decided to give this tea a try.

I steeped my sample per the directions on the packet (1.5 tsp in boiling water for 3 minutes), poured it into my travel mug that was partially filled with ice and topped it up with a decent splash of coconut-almond milk. This tea tastes very bread-y to me. It might’ve been the addition of non-dairy milk. The more I drink this tea the more I’m reminded of spice cake batter, like a carrot cake batter minus the carrots and pineapple. It’s nicely spiced but not overwhelmingly so. Despite the addition of coconut-almond milk, the coconut flavor is, unfortunately, barely there. It’s not something that I’d rush out to purchase, but it wasn’t unpleasant. I imagine it would make a nice base for a autumnal smoothie, oatmeal/porridge or baked goods.

drank Blue Pomegranate by Pretty Tea
8 tasting notes

I received this as part of mystery box and I knew I wanted to try this iced as opposed to hot. I used about 5tsp for 8oz of water (poured over ice for a total of 16oz) with just a hint of sugar. The result? A delicious, fruity and delightful iced tea! I pick up a stronger blueberry flavor than pomegranate. Coloring is more purple-red then blue.

Flavors: Blueberry, Fruity

drank Black & White by Pretty Tea
8 tasting notes

Pretty Tea sent me this in my Mystery Box and I’m really enjoying it. It’s similar to Creme Earl Grey…sans the Earl Grey-iness of that blend. So as someone who doesn’t particularly enjoy bergamot this is fantastic.

Black & White has a decent vanilla flavor without tasting artificial. The black tea blend is smooth and doesn’t overpower the vanilla. The steeped tea is a nice dark brown.

I enjoyed a cup with vanilla rock sugar and milk.

I really enjoy the fruityness of this which is unusual for a black tea in my experience. It’s very bright tasting and sweet, the raspberry and popcorn bringing up the main notes.
