Leaf Type: White & Black Teas
Where to Buy: Uniq Teas
Started with a White Chai Base added a hint of Caramel & Raspberry. Aromatic, Spicy, Sweet, fruit and vegetal notes underneath with a overall medium strength flavor. A Sororitea Sisters White/Black Tea Blend.
After enjoying my own blend from Uniq Teas, I really looked forward to trying the blends that my SororiTea Sisters created. This SororiTea’s Tri Pi Chai was crafted by Jennifer aka TeaEqualsBliss, and she used a base of White Chai, and blended that with a touch of Caramel Black tea and Raspberry Black tea.
And I really like this. I like that I taste both the black and the white tea here, the white tea isn’t overpowered by the black tea. The black tea tastes like a lighter black tea – imagine resteeping the leaves of a black tea twice … the flavor would be significantly lighter, and that’s what I taste here. I still get the essence of the earthy, black tea flavor but, it’s lighter than a typical black tea – not so robust and strong.
The white tea is actually the stronger of the two teas, and it tastes fresh and delicate and there is a creaminess to it that complements the flavor of the caramel quite nicely.
The spiciness of the chai is fairly mild, I taste cardamom and cinnamon, and maybe just a hint of ginger. There’s just a touch of that prickly, peppery taste of the ginger that hits the back of the tongue. And the lemongrass adds a brightness to the cup … it doesn’t taste overly citrus-y … it’s just sort of … bright.
The caramel is soft, as is the raspberry. I think that the raspberry is a little stronger than the caramel … or at least, it’s more noticeable in this cup. It tastes sweet, tart, and has that berry tingle in the aftertaste. The caramel is more like a presence of sweetness rather than an obvious caramel-y taste.
Overall, this is something I really enjoyed. I really like how the flavors come together and provide a taste that is a little bit sweet, a little bit spicy, a little bit tart and a whole lot of tasty!
Anne started her journey with tea as a casual drinker and became more serious about her tea drinking when she realized that she couldn't drink coffee. Shortly thereafter, she started becoming obsessed with the beverage and she started creating small-batch, artisan blends of tea that she sold online as LiberTEAS. After a few years, she realized she wasn't cut out to be the sole proprietor of a business so she closed LiberTEAS and started reviewing teas online. She met Jennifer through another blog that they both reviewed for and they decided to start their own review blog. This review blog!
Throughout her journey as a tea reviewer, she discovered 52Teas and became enamored with the idea of creating a new tea every week. When the founder of 52Teas decided he wanted to move on, he offered the business to Anne but knowing that she wasn't cut out to be a sole proprietor, she instead offered the company to her oldest daughter who employs her as the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas!
