Taster’s Review:

Be still my heart! This is a perfect chai tea for me!

This tea is such a subtle gorgeous version of a chai tea.  The tea brewed up is a gorgeous light amber brew and has such a sweet cinnamon aroma.  Brewed up like a black tea (212F-3 min), this tea produces an amazing flavor that I’m wowed by.

Organic Rose Chai Black Tea provides such a sweet floral version of a chai tea for those who aren’t huge fans of heavily spiced teas like myself.  The floral notes contrast nicely with the cardamom, coriander, and cinnamon notes in each sip.  The more the tea cools, the more the cloves are starting to become more prominent but still the rose petals are still the forefront flavor.  I don’t really pick up the black tea but the tea does have that nice well rounded feel to it, so I’m thinking that is what the base is providing.

I did try this as an iced tea and still this amazing sweet floral chai flavor that I can’t seem to get enough of.  Such a simple tea, but so well done!

Another fantastic tea from AmiTea Organics.  If you haven’t taken a moment to check out AmiTea’s amazing selection, please do so now! You are missing out on some amazing flavored teas!

Taster’s Review:

This tea is beautiful.   There are nice sized elderberries, chai ingredients, herbs and spices in this blend.  I’m pretty impressed with the quality of this blend.

Elderberry Herb Farm carries a few different herbal teas.  I’ve tried a couple and they are really good.  This one is good too, but I think it is my least favorite.

I am not a huge black licorice fan and this blend has a black licorice taste to it.  There is also a strong clove flavor running through each sip.  I could very easily drink this.  The tea is good.  This is just isn’t my favorite chai or would this be a tea I would reach for again.

On the other hand, one of my boyfriends’ twins tried this and adored it.  He asked me to make him another cup of it.  This kid loves chai, so the fact that he loves this tea is really no surprise.  He asked if I would keep some aside for him for tomorrow and later in the week when he and I have our “tea parties”.  It was really cute.

If you are a fan of black licorice, this blend is totally for you.  If not, I say give it a try anyway.  I am not a huge chai drinker and I could drink this if it was around.

With a touch of honey, sugar, and cream, I bet this tea would be fantastic!
