Tasting Notes

Sight: The ingredients of this tea all come together to create a loose leaf blend of a variety of different shapes, sizes, and colours; which find unity in the perfect balance of cool and warm undertones It steeps a light green tea colour.

Smell: The loose leaf smells amazing. It’s spicy and decadent, and almost reminds me of bubblegum. Spicy bubblegum. Steeping this tea brings out the smell of the cinnamon and other chai-like ingredients, so it smells like a sweet and decadent chai latte.

Taste: This tea is very sweet and has a mild chai flavour. The sweetness is very dominant over the other flavours of this tea, and I can definitely taste the stevia because it has such a unique aftertaste.

I’m going to be a little picky with my ratings, so I hope you don’t get the wrong idea from me giving it two stars. I would love this tea if it weren’t for the stevia because it just has this lingering aftertaste that I’m not a huge fan of. If you like stevia though, this won’t be a problem for you at all. The tea is also a little too sweet for my taste, but aside from that, I could absolutely see this being someone’s favourite holiday drink.

Other Notes:

Since this is a rather sweet tea, I wonder if it could be used to do some Christmas-y baking! Please do let me know if you have some recipes for such.
