I got this tea yesterday, (Yeah even though I promised myself I would not buy anymore tea before Christmas, but I caved when I had to get more German Rock Sugar. Pfft. Enablers.)

I got these both seperately because I wanted to try it seperately 1st. Which didn’t work out that way. I ended up combining them.
1st smell of both: the Maharaja, it smelled very spicy and cinnamony. I do like cinnamon, but in small doses. And what chai’s I have had, I like to extents. 1st smell of the Tulsi Dosha…like the 1st, but softer, warmer. like vanilla. I brewed it to the directions of the Oolong, or rather as close as I could get, at 190, (bag suggested 195.) and plus I saw others mentioned the lower temperature, the creaminess comes thru more.

1st taste: Cinnamon vanilla. those were the 2 immediate impressions I got. I also found it to be familiar tasting. It took me a little bit to figure out what it tasted like. Zingiber Ginger Coconut. At 1st, I admit I was alittle bit annoyed, I mean I love Zingiber, but I don’t need another tea that tastes like it. But as I continued sipping my cup, it appealed to me. Not sure if I would get this again, and I think I might try to do an actual taste comparison with the Zingiber.

Been a tea lover for most of my life, though it’s only in the past? (5-8 years.) That I’ve been drinking loose leaf tea.

I like mostly blended teas in Black, White, and some Oolong. Sadly not much Green tea that I really like. And of course Herbal.

Rating Guide that I use, though I am not terribly consistent;)

100 Excellent
90-99 Very Good
70-89 Fair
50-69 The only teas that I am interested in in this rating are teas that I can buy locally, such as at a grocery store, fruit market, tea shop, etc. Or is fairly cheap/add on thru a website.
50 and Below No redeeming qualities whatsoever or is too much like a tea that I already have.

Some teas such as Constant Comment by Bigelow I still drink on occasion, it is one of my comfort teas from when I was growing up. Others are Perfect Peach, Mint Medley and Cozy Chamomile.

I am a bookworm, though I also enjoy art journaling/mixed media, making jewelry, spending waaaaaay to much time online…particularly bingeing various tv shows on Netflix and Hulu. Also various forums like this one (On and off.) Quora, Goodreads, Youtube and misc. others. If you see the nicknames Lynxiebrat/Lynxiegrl,Lynxiedove, Zaaron or Sarikcat, then drop me a message:)
