drank Tibetan Herbal Chai by Tealux
350 tasting notes

This is another chai-without-the-tea blend, though it is a lot heavier on the cardamom and also has rose petals. I like the extra cardamom (might have gone through and crushed each of the pods before steeping to enhance the flavour, lol) and can’t really taste the rose. There’s a really obvious sweetness and throat-coating-ness to this from the licorice root, which I don’t hate but wasn’t really in the mood for when I steeped this. Meh, I think I’ll have to just try it again another time.

Well it has been over a year and everyone I know thinks my tea obsession is a bit out of hand, so… I guess I’m not a total newbie anymore. :)

I’m drinking a lot more pure tea these days, though I still love a good flavoured blend too. Current favourites: Chinese and Taiwanese blacks, fresh Chinese greens, oolongs both green and roasted, sheng puer.

I really love companies that buy directly from tea farmers, and have an emphasis on quality and sustainability. Favourites: Verdant, Whispering Pines, Eco Cha, White 2 Tea. I live in a small town in the middle of nowhere, so I buy almost all my tea online.

For hot tea, I’m usually brewing in either a 100ml gaiwan, or a 10oz mug with a steeping basket. For cold tea, I cold brew overnight in 500ml mason jars.

My cupboard on Steepster doesn’t include small samples, just the ones I have at least 15g of. So if you see something you’re interested in, I probably have enough to share. :)
