drank Hazelnut Chai by Twinings
11 tasting notes

This and the Twinings Christmas Tea were the first two teas to start my tea journey. I picked them up at Big Lots and went back to get every one they had lol I had tried a very peppery chai a long time ago and that turned me off chais so this really mild chai, with undertones of Hazelnut, was absolutely delicious and made me want to try more varieties. I’ve just gone through Twinings Spiced Apple Chai and Ultra Spice which I’m reviewing but this is my favorite of the three for smooth tastiness.

It makes a light soothing cup of hot tea and an incredibly refreshing iced tea. I didn’t taste the cinnamon very strongly they way Tamm did, I’d agree more with Dani that it’s pretty mild for chai but delicious.

Started my tea journey in 2013 and am having fun geeking out on it :o)

I prefer full bodied, flavored black teas and am exploring Darjeelings for all day drinking. Also Honeybush and flavored chamomiles for late night relaxing.

I was having trouble gauging my initial ratings as I tend to be a little conservative, but then I found Auggy’s rating scale which I am adopting. Thank you Auggy!
1 – 10 – Bleck. Didn’t finish the cup.
11 – 25 – Drinkable. But don’t punish me by making me have it again.
26 – 40 – Meh. (reference to giving it to husband as iced tea didn’t apply to me lol)
41 – 60 – Okayish. Maybe one day I’ll kill off what I have in my pantry.
61 – 75 – Decent. I might pick some up if I needed tea.
76 – 85 – Nice. I’d probably buy but wouldn’t hunt it down.
86 – 100 – Yum! I will hunt down the vendor to get this tea!
