Thank you Chi Whole Leaf for this sample.

This is not a review, ok well it is but it’s a pre-review. Tomorrow I aim to sit and review each of these properly, not to mention thoroughly. As for now out of the five samples received this is the one I am the most eager to try for two reasons. 1 – I LOVE ginger. 2 – I LOVE chai.

So a quick taste of this as I cannot wait any longer. Well, I’ve only had the sample for a couple of hours. It shows the power of temptation.

Anyway, back on point. This is sooo easy to make. 1/2 a teaspoon with boiling water, splash of milk and a thorough mix. Oh and I added sweetener today, just some calorie free stuff. Simple, takes seconds.

The mix smells spicy, not over the top spicy but it gave me an ‘ooph’ moment when I opened the little sachet.

In terms of flavour I must say….I AM LOVING IT! So much so that I am truly considering buying more, even though money is tight and I vowed not to buy any more tea. (Though after saying this I realize yesterday I placed an order with Siam Tea). Super naughty of me!

The ginger is mild but spicy and lingers in the after taste, and as for this being a Rooibos blend it’s actually very clean tasting. I can tell it is Rooibos but it’s mild in terms of flavour, it adds some body and sweetness above the chemical, herbal tones. Also says this one contains clove which I can pick out towards the after taste. Refreshing, spicy yet still subtle.

Yes. I do love this one. As I drink it more and more I can see myself taking this with me to friends houses and such for ease of making and transporting.

No rating today, shall wait until tomorrow. But for today, thumbs up.

I’m 30 years old from Leicester, England named Kayleigh. I have a wonderful husband called Richard whom I am very lucky to have in my life.

I started off many years ago drinking herbal and fruit teas which over time peaked my interest in trying new types. Eventually I began to import and sample many different teas and cultures which I still do today. My life goal is to try as many teas and ways of having tea as possible.

Tea wise my cravings change constantly from pu erh one month to jasmine green to the next and so on.

I adore cats and have six of my own called Cassie, Mr Sooty Pants,Ivory Ruby, Lady, Misty and Ollie.

I also have two fish tanks which thankfully my cats have no interest in. They house an array of tropical fish and shrimp.

I am a proud vegetarian and have been for the majority of my life. When I say vegetarian I mean just that as well, no fish or seafood, no chicken now and again, no animal products such as gelatine and cochineal.

I also enjoy watching Japanese Anime and horror films.

I am always up for tea swaps so if you see anything in my virtual cupboard then please contact me.

A short list to help swapping with me easier though honestly I am not fussy and am willing to try anything. Plus the notes below are usually, sometimes I love a tea that has an ingredient I tend to dislike and other times I hate a tea that I thought I would love.

Likes: Any fruit but especially melon and orange, vanilla, all tea types (black, green, white etc), nuts (any), flowers, ginger, chai.

Dislikes: Licorice, aniseed, clove, eucalyptus, lavender.

My rating system
I have my own way of rating teas that makes each one personal. I have different categories, I rate each tea depending on what it is made of. For example: I rate green teas in a different way to black teas or herbal teas. So black, white, green, Pu Erh, Rooibos, Oolong, blends and tisanes all have their own rating system. That way I can compare them with other teas of the same or similar type before for an adequate rating. And when I do give top marks which is very rare I am actually saying that I would love to drink that tea all day, every day if possible. It’s a tea that I would never turn down or not be in the mood for. So while I agree that no tea is 100% perfect (as nothing is) I am saying that it’s as close as it comes to it. After all, in my book the perfect teas (or close to perfect anyway) are ones that I could drink all the time. That is why you will find a high quality black or Oolong will not have as high a score as a cheap flavoured blend, they are simply not being compared in the same category.
