drank Seminole Chai by Yaupon Brothers
735 tasting notes

This is another tea sent to me by Yaupon Brothers. Thank you!

I am all about chai. It’s a staple in my collection for sure. However, the dry bags don’t smell so much like chai to me. There are gingery notes in the aroma, but mostly it smells vegetal and seaweedy, with a little bit of iodine. Like some green teas. There is a faint hint of cinnamon that you really have to feel for.

I used 5 bags for a 24 ounce pot, making it strong on purpose to stand up against a splash of milk. (I realize this was a bold and maybe unwise move.) The water starts off light green and fades to a dark brownish color. With milk, it whitens fast and ends up pale tan. The spices don’t really come through at all as far as flavor goes. This surprises me after how bright and flavorful the Lavender Coconut was. I honestly would not know this was a chai at all if I hadn’t read the package. It mostly just tastes like a nutty, somewhat vegetal green tea.

Flavors: Cinnamon, Ginger, Nutty, Seaweed, Vegetal

205 °F / 96 °C 5 min, 0 sec 24 OZ / 709 ML

Quiet, strange, and in love with the world of tea. Living just outside of Atlanta. Cat lover, electronic music geek, balcony gardener, and collector of fossils. On the hunt for the perfect tea in each of my favorite categories.

After 10 years on Steepster, I have given up. The lack of maintenance, updates, and mobile compatibility have finally discouraged me. I still use my Cupboard and add teas to the database, but I won’t be logging teas anymore.
