drank Chai by Earth Teaze
150 tasting notes

Another buy from Homesense. It was on sale for 3.00. Really… 50g of chai for 3.00.. I pay more for a Starbucks. So good buy first off.

This morning was my first morning of my health kick, so I was up nice and early. I decided to reward my dedication with my new tea.
When I first smell this tea, I get ginger right away. I can see pieces of clove, a few cardamom pods and maybe cinnamon bark. It doesn’t smell particularly spicy. I’m was worried when I saw that there was mate in it because I find the taste of mate unappealing. The tea leaves are rolled quite long.

When I taste it, it’s pretty… for lack of better word… bland? No spice to it at all. I had it with a coconut milk creamer because I am off dairy for 3 weeks. It’s still worth the 3.00 I paid, however it’s definitely an uninspiring blend. I haven’t put any sugar in it because this is also something I am eliminating for 3 weeks, so maybe sweetness would perk it up? For now it’s a middle of the pack tea.

Flavors: Ginger

Boiling 5 min, 0 sec 2 tsp 20 OZ / 600 ML

My passion for tea started at a very young age, thanks to my grandmothers beautiful china tea cup collection. I use to brew Tetley’s or whatever version of Orange Pekoe she had in the cupboard and pick out my favourite tea cup to use. It wasn’t until I was in my late teens that I really started to develop a passion for it. My town had the Urban Tea Merchant and it was there I was exposed to high tea and the very fancy Mariage Freres brand. When they switched over to The O Dor, my girlfriend and I found salvation in going for a lovely cup of tea and decompress with some tea scones.

It has since become an obsession. I have a tea cupboard, filled with a very large variety of teas. I also use the Breville Tea Maker to make my tea. I favour black teas, with a close second being North African Mint Green Tea. Because I have the luxury of working from home, I get to enjoy a wonderful cup of tea every morning, and the journey resets daily.
