drank Sticky Chai by Bird & Blend Tea Co.
1546 tasting notes

I’ve had this chai a couple of times now and it has been a disappointment every time. I have tried steeping it, boiling it in nut milk and now doubling the amount of tea to try to pull some flavor out. Chai is usually spicy and warming, filled with delightful flavors with a base of tea to carry them. This doesn’t have that. At all. I can smell a little bit of the spices as I sip, but get next to nothing on the palate. The idea of a tea kept wet with a sweetener is interesting, but the company has WAY oversold this tea as “the best chai this side of Mumbai”, which raises expectations to something this tea can not deliver.

I always wanted to try this one. But saying it’s the best chai does set the bar a little high.

You really aren’t missing much. It sounds way better than it is. Should have been more like “the okayest chai this side of Mumbai”.

My name is Dustin and I like tea.

I’m an added flavor kind of tea fan, but have had a growing appreciation for plain. I want my tea to remind me of cookies and cakes with coconut and almond slices with a hint of chocolate drizzled on top. I want dancing ponies and flying monkeys shooting off fireworks! And no hibiscus. Hibiscus is the devil.
