I have received two tea bags of this tea from derk — thank you!

I generally avoid spicy food, and what is “mildly” spiced is sometimes way too much for me and I can’t imagine what “hot” really means.

I was feeling nothing but cold today early evening, so I decided to brew something that should warm me up. I am sure I would fin many other chais, lovely full bodied teas, or something in between, but I took this one. Afterall, I need to drink it anyway so…

Dry bag was spicy, but somehow okay-level. I have a spicy tea, so naturally it’s spicy; but also a bit sweet and some spices tried to peek out too.

I brewed it and steeped rather short. Afterall, it’s evening already and I would like to sleep; and this blend contains black tea. Aroma left me “just drink me” impression, so I thought it won’t be bad.

I HAVE BEEN SO WRONG! After first sip, still quite hot (by temperature) I had my mouth completely in fire (by habanero) that I almost spit it out. I did not, it left my eyes wide open, habanero fire was slowly going through all the veins and I feel not cold anymore. Not a surprise IMO!
It was cooling down and I was still trying to drink it. And actually, it is getting better. Hard to find any chocolate in this, rather some general sweetness, and some ginger and allspice spices is there beneath heavy blanket of habanero.

Oh dear. No, I am not able to rate this tea and won’t be. But looking forward to sip it down — the second bag.

Oh no, so sorry it lit you on fire! I tried it a few times and found it not very spicy at all. It tasted mostly of cocoa shell and some spices. How wrong I have been! I do not mean to torture you, my friend! Maybe it is unevenly blended so you got to taste the true side of habañero, while I sit here and cry that it is not spicy enough for me :P

I’m extremely spice sensitive, too. Someone will tell me “This isn’t very spicy, about a 3 out of 10” and then I try it and scream in agony, “That’s more like a 3,000!” But on the flip side, whenever I seen the thousands of tea reviews saying that hibiscus is “way too tart!” or “so sour!” I scratch my head and go, “No it isn’t, what’s tart about that? I could do with MOAR TART!” Different tongue receptors, I guess…

Maybe second one will be milder. Hopefully :D
