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!
