I was really hesitant to try this, but if VariaTEA is generous enough to send it to me, I should at least give it a shot.
Yeah, I know – I’m the queen of chai – have TONS in my house – but the ingredient list doesn’t read like chai to me. (I also really don’t like licorice – this says both star anise and licorice.) Oh well here goes nothing….
This is too strange, there are too many conflicting flavors – and I don’t think chai is any of them. Fruity pu’erh with licorice (not strong – more subtle star anise). Weird, I think pu’erh adds nice depth and undertones to chocolate flavors, and to things like Davids Coffee Pu’erh – but this pu’erh is fighting the fruit for attention – then I just can’t get past the licorice.
Sorry VariaTEA – really liked the coconut chai, really don’t like this one. I’m not going to rate it re me not liking licorice, but this gets abotu 25… Will take the deodorant white over this any day.. :))

haha I actually haven’t even tried this one yet. I really should try things before I send them to people. I also am not a fan of licorice so I probably should have checked ingredients before buying it. It just smelled good to me and came recommended by the saleswoman. Oh well, nothing I can do about that now. I am sorry it was such a miss. If I ever send something you don’t want to try, feel free to pass it along.

No it’s fine, sometimes you have to try things outside your comfort zone – that’s the fun thing about swapping. This might say licorice, but that doesn’t mean it tastes licorice. You don’t know until you try. :))

Well I own it so I will probably give it a try sometime in the future. I keep getting distracted by swaps and teas that I can easily sipdown.

I sent this off to Dexter3657 without ever having tried it myself. I figured it was chai and so she might like to give it a try. However, I put this off for a while and her review simply made me push it off even more but I decided I must buckle down and try it before I officially pass judgement. Although, tbh, reading the description and the ingredients, I find myself questioning why I ever bought this to begin with. I am not huge on pu’erh nor chai and I typically overlook anything with licorice. So there isn’t high hopes here.

Alright so after my first sip, I am getting the pu’erh which is earthy but not as “dirt-like” as others I have tried. And there is a hint of berry. I don’t get chai and thankfully no licorice. As I continue to sip, I might detect some spices but they really are hidden well. Also there is no mango. I added some milk and that sort of (not really) brought out the spices but it really bumped up the pu’erh. Honestly, this is not a bad cup but it definitely does not live up to its namesake. To the swap box with the rest and I think this cup is getting poured. I am at the point in my tea journey where I realize there is just not enough time to waste it with cups that aren’t for you.
