I remember having a bag of maharaja chai many years ago, so I was happy to see a little sample in a previous TTB. The scent really takes me back. The flavor isn’t very complex. It’s sort of just a tang of cinnamon stick. It’s a little thin, and I never used to drink it with milk, but I tried some this time and think that helped a bit. I’m not really sure what the samurai chai mate adds since I feel like I only taste the other tea. I don’t need more of this one, but it’s always nice to sample some classic Teavana!

I’m an event planner who always has multiple mugs of tea beside me. Hobbies other than tea include board games, video games, cooking international dishes, science fiction, hiking, jigsaw puzzles, tap dancing, reading, listening to podcasts, and playing with my troublesome kitties.

Favorite flavors: dessert flavors, nutty, melon, mint, strawberry, anything rooibos-related.

Don’t prefer: Smoky, rosemary, savory flavors, floral (other than lavender), plain tea.

I always drink flavored tea, and preferably caffeine-free or black. I’ll try just about anything though! Let me know if you’re interested in a swap!

My ratings are kind of meaningless, but basically
90-100 pretty perfect
80-89 really good
70-79 good, but not the best
60-69 okay, but probably not for me
1-59 varying degrees of dislike
