drank Vanilla Chai Spice by Tea Guys
7 tasting notes

I really, really want to like this tea. Tea Guys is pretty local as a brand to me, and they’ve been putting up a real decent Creme Earl Grey in stores. That being said, I’m just not excited about this particular chai. The spice is quite muted, and the base black tea really isn’t anything to write home about. The cinnamon is nice, the vanilla comes through and adds a nice roundness to the flavor, and there’s subtle anise and ginger notes. There’s even a slight acidity which I can’t quite place, but other than that, nothing really grabs me one way or the other. It’s probably good as an introductory chai, or if you don’t like a tea being heavy on the spice, but it’s just not for me.

Flavors: Anise, Cinnamon, Vanilla

Boiling 5 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

About Me:
A tea enthusiast, and sometimes a cat on the internet. Currently revisiting some old favorites and sampling some new blends.

While I do like cream and sugar in some teas, I always taste teas without additives initially.

Personal Taste:
I try to taste as widely as I can, but I definitely play favorites with certain flavors. Floral, citrus, and berry flavors in full-bodied teas are the most appealing to me. Overwhelming spice and smoke notes are on the more difficult side, though I continue to try and broaden my horizons.

I don’t really have a strong system for numeric ratings beyond general gut feeling, so I try to write down my thoughts while they’re still fresh. Generally speaking, my words are going to speak louder than the numbers on each tea. Hopefully those thoughts will be useful to people.
