Spicy and full of flavor. Our premium black teas mingle with cinnamon, clove, cardamom, and orange peel for an intense full-bodied flavor. If you like your chai spicy and rich, pick this blend. Or, for more tea flavor and less spice, mix with our Oothu tea to fit your taste. Fair trade & organic certified.

I love a good, spicy chai, so when I read the description above, that’s exactly what I envisioned. Unfortunately, this isn’t quite as spicy as I hoped for.
Oh, it’s still very good! Don’t get me wrong.
It’s just not quite as boldly spiced as I thought it would be based upon the description above. The spices are nicely balanced, though, and I like that. I taste cinnamon, cardamom and clove. These three spices have been assembled in a way that no one spice overpowers the other. It’s a warm medley of spice. Very nice.
I also taste hints of orange from the orange peel. When I first read that this tea has orange peel, I thought that this might just be their Just Outstanding Orange Spice packaged under a different name. But they are two different teas. Here the orange is a very subtle touch of flavor, whereas the orange spice blend has a much more pronounced orange flavor.
This is really quite a tasty blend. I think that if they want to really go bold with the spice though, Just.Organic.Tea should consider adding some black pepper and ginger to the blend. That will give it a really nice, zesty kick. As it is, it’s a nice chai, on the mellower side of chai, but not quite as spicy as the above description would suggest.
This blend is one that I didn’t find on their website, perhaps it’s a blend that’s being rethought? I would love to see this company have a chai blend though, because I do love chai! In the meantime, I think their Outstanding Orange Spice blend is really good, and I also noticed that they have a Pumpkin Spice Chai – oh! I’d like to try that one!

Alice in Wonderland Patchwork!
Nine seperate 8×8 cute and colorful Alice in Wonderland squares!
Great for quilts, wall art, glass blocks and so much more!
When I received this Alice Patchwork set created by Tainted Sweets, I was thrilled! I love Alice in Wonderland, and this was such an adorable interpretation.
After giving it some thought, I knew just what I wanted to do! I decided to make a greeting card set with them. The graphics are large (8×8), so, I had to adjust the size on them. I used the image of the Mad Hatter, The Dormouse, and the Teapot/Teacups for a set of three.
I printed the adjusted squares onto cardstock which I then cut out. I ran my Krylon Gold Leafing pen around the edges of the square, and then I layered the square onto some coordinating scrapbook paper that I had on hand. I used some foam mounting tape for the printed images to give the card a little dimension, and added a few rhinestones to each card for some sparkle.
These were a lot of fun to make, and I really like how they turned out. I will be sending these out to some on-line Tea Friends, but, I think a full set (using all 9 images!) would make a great gift for someone special!
MyGrafico is a great website – loaded with tons of images. Check them out for your next artsy project!

Product Review from TeaEqualsBliss:
Anne and I are not only into tea and writing we are both into arts and crafts. A couple of weeks ago we were chatting about a few new features to SororiTEA Sisters and we decided to include Tea Related Art and Crafting Supplies and Outlets within our Product Reviews!
We felt there was a lack of joining the two interests – Tea and Arts/Crafts – online and on other Tea Review Sites so we decided since we try and include anything and everything TEA here at SororiTEA Sisters we would incorporate them here from time to time.
I have been a fan of the designers over at MyGraficO for quite some time! I have been and are on a few design teams and can’t get enough of their Digital Stamps, Clip Art, Digital Papers, etc. Lately I have noticed that MyGraficO has one of the better selections of Tea Related Digital Arts & Craft Components online. This made me VERY HAPPY!
As you can see from the images above I decided to make a card from this set! I make at least 3 Handmade Cards a week and I’m always looking for Tea Clipart and Digital Stamps to incorporate in my projects! I have been getting into some hybrid and altered paper projects as well and I’m sure I will blog about that down the road. There are some really neat things you can do with these sets! I have made Tea Swap Envelopes, Packages, Storage Containers, Album Title Pages, Altered Boxes and Tins, the list goes on and on!
Anyways, I hope you like my first card. And I hope you take a moment to visit MyGraficO! There are TONS of things on that site! The Designers are great and the shop owner is even a TEA FAN herself!
