Rose Chai from Tea Dude. . . . . .

This is a tasty chai, but I can’t taste the rose. Which totally stresses me out, guys. I want to be like “the rose notes are a pink rose, first bloom of spring, a tender, easy rose, like the kind you buy for a fresh love.” Or perhaps “this rose is a sultry red, the color of midnight kisses and lipstick on the collar. It’s the last wisp of your lover’s perfume on your clothes as you drive away into the shuddering rain, alone.” But I can’t taste that. I’m getting a lot of spices. Which is totally what a Read More

I’m CooCoo for White Coco Choco Chai from Nelson’s Tea

When I’m trying to cut caffeine, but still want some chai spice, I often drink nutty rooibos chais or lemony herbal chais. Depending on the blend and my mood, these alternatives can be tasty, but sometimes I find myself wanting more.  White Coco Choco Chai from Nelson’s Tea is the perfect solution. This tea has a white tea base along with the usual suspects of chai spice: cinnamon, ginger, cardamom.  But it also has the addition of allspice, black pepper, coconut and chocolate chips.  There’s the same heat I know and love from black tea chais, the kick of ginger Read More

Masala Chai Black Tea from The Tea Obsession. . . .

My taste buds have started it seems.  I used to be all about the sweet dessert like teas but lately I have wanted a more spicy kick.  This tea was the perfect answer to my after dinner tea with my stepsons the other night. In the past, I have steered away from Masala Chai blends but after having this one, I think I need to be a bit more open minded.  Right out of the pouch this tea greets you with that familiar warming spice blend that warms you to your toes.  My stepsons saw I was brewing up a Read More

Pumpkin Chai

Pumpkin Chai from David’s Tea

When seasons collide! Today I brewed up DAVIDsTEA’s Pumpkin Chai as an eggnog latte, combining a Fall favorite with a beloved holiday classic. The end result? Perfection! Pumpkin Chai is one of the blends that people wait for each fall as it brings together both the Fall flavors of Pumpkin Spice and Chai. Add to that some caramel and you have a winner that people will buy year after year. Brewed up as an eggnog latte, the sweet gooey caramel really shines. Underlying that is the creaminess of the eggnog that plays off the spices in the tea making for Read More
