Last night the hubby and I drank the last of my Do You Tea? stash. Sad, but I have to say, I’m glad I ended the stash with this tea, Spicy Shore.
I am not a huge fan of chai teas but every once in a while there is a chai blend that really catches my attention. This blend is one of them!
Spicy Shore is a lovely white tea chai blend. Full of sweet notes and spicy hints, this tea really delivers a lovely complex flavor. The dry leaf emits a vibrant pineapple flavor with a spicy hint ginger hint.
Brewed up per the instructions on the package, first sip in, I knew this tea and I were going to be friends. Sweet notes of pineapple mingled with a spicy kick of ginger and cardamom-surrounded by a lush and creamy white tea finish. Really light yet full of flavor. There isn’t one overpowering flavor over another.
This really is the the perfect chai tea for the non chai tea fan. Subtle but full of flavor. No punch you in the face chai flavors that I’m used to. I found that you didn’t need to add in any honey or milk, but I could see where a small drop of honey could really heighten the flavors.
Do You Tea? outdid themselves yet again! A wonderful chai tea to drink anytime that I will need to pick up again! I can only imagine how dynamite this tea would be as a cold brew!
Tea is a passion that quickly turned into an obsession, very similar to my love for polka dots, the horror genre, and anything that is geeky and fun.I drink all kinds of tea and will try a tea twice to make sure I didn't bumble the first infusion.
Besides SororiTea Sisters, I'm also the blogger and genius (I use that word very loosely) behind CuppaGeek, where I review tea, books, and the horror genre.
