235 Tasting Notes
Not a fan. Almost has a bit of a Star Anise taste to it but not listed in the ingredients. Mostly tea dust with little bits of spice. I do smell the cardamom. Mostly I make this with water but I think it might be better with milk. Just adding a bit of milk didn’t work for me, I had to switch to evaporated milk. There are better chai teas…I don’t like most of Vadham teas but their Assam Chai is amazing…would get that over this any day.
Flavors: Star Anise
This is a strong black tea!! I like it. Small crushed leaves that looks visually different from all the other teas. Takes milk and sugar very well. I think I favor the Irish breakfast over this just a bit more but I do really like this one! I went to Barcelona for a few days and didnt bring any tea, I was so happy to come back home to this!!! Next time I am traveling with my tea.
Eh…I was expecting to love this. I love Earl Grey and I think I love creamy teas. But it tasted exactly like an Earl Grey Rooibos I had a few months back…I guess I’m tired of that flavor and wasn’t expecting it in this tea. It really doesn’t taste like Earl Grey …just weird and artificial. Disappointing.
Not bad, I was thinking it would have banana, anything with monkey in the title tends to make me think bananas. Anywho, it does have a strong coffee taste, lotsa visible coffee beans- green beans etc. its nice although pretty sweet on its own. Liked it most as a latte. Good for coffee lovers that are looking to switch to tea…
I really like this tea. Perfect breakfast tea with milk and sugar.. nice and strong but expensive . It’s little bits of tea and maybe overpriced. 10 dollars for under two ounces when you can get 4 ounces of Harney free shipping under ten. I think the Irish breakfast is most comparable if my memory serves. I like it… prolly wont buy it again…
Very berry….Maybe currants? Surprisingly nice. I haven’t had many puerh teas and was very pleasantly surprised by them. Never thought you could get such a fruity tea. Mostly drank it cold but its nice hot too. Most berry teas that tends not to be true. I wouldnt buy again but I enjoyed it.
Starbucks Vanilla Frap…is this you? I don’t drink a lot of coffee, can’t handle the caffeine. But I have had a vanilla frap from starbucks 3 or 4 times…years ago. I think this tastes like I remember. I like it..and it’s low caffeine. This one I am glad to have a larger size of. I’ve been drinking right though my sampler set. I had a back up of Davids Chai- which I don’t like and gave to my sister- not sure if she will like it, and this. I can’t wait to dig into it. Almost through with my sampler now. It does have artificial vanilla- probably helped by my vanilla sugar, which I make with tons of vanilla beans..It has a nice coffee flavor.
