It’s Chai season so I figured I’d work on finishing the bag I have of this. It’s almost gone and I realized I hadn’t reviewed it.
I don’t like this one but that is partially due to personal preference and partially due to the base. The black tea is somewhat bitter and the chili and spices in this create a very pepper-heavy taste. I do taste the elderberry and it’s quite nice but unfortunately, it’s rather hidden by the spices. I don’t think it meshes well with the spices. I’d love to see an elderberry chai that is more balanced spice-wise. I could see 52 Teas doing this flavor combination justice.

I like straight-up steeped elderberries with straight-up cinnamon.

I drink tea for many reasons: For pleasure, health benefits, mindfulness, to help with anxiety, hydration because I have always struggled with drinking plain water.
My rating system is kind of a mess and I keep telling myself I’ll fix it sometime.

0-23 Rating Means I couldn’t finish the cup
50- Undecided on a rating or don’t remember enough about it to rate the tea.
