drank Decaffeinated Chai by Twinings
32 tasting notes

Earlier this month was the first time I’d ever had chai. I bought a small box of concentrated decaf chai latte made by Tazo. I had nothing to compare it to, but it was wonderful. When buying this box of chai tea, I thought I’d have a similar experience, especially considering that most Twinings teas are pretty good.

I tried not to expect much, because it is a decaffeinated tea after all, which can be pretty hit or miss, but despite this, I was still a little disappointed. Upon steeping, the smell was that of an overpowering artificial cinnamon. It reminded me a lot of Red Hots candy. To prepare it, I added 2 teaspoons of sugar and a dash of milk.

The taste with my additions was still much like Red Hots. There was also an artificial sweetness in the background as well. I couldn’t really taste the tea or any other flavors, save for a hint of cloves. I wasn’t so bothered that I couldn’t finish my cup, but I don’t think I will be buying this again once I’ve finished the box. I’m sure there are better decaf chai teas out there. Sadly, this one wasn’t as wonderful as I had hoped it’d be.

Life is hard, but tea always makes everything better.
