drank Vanilla Chai Tea by Bigelow
467 tasting notes

As we all know, everyone has different tastes. I sort of enjoyed this one. I usually take misc. teabags with me when we go out to eat. (I really don’t like most restaurant teas) I’ve had several cups over the last few weeks. Of course, one of the problems with drinking at a restaurant is that you have know idea what the temp. is and time is only vague since I’m not going to watch my phone or watch. The aroma is lovely with strong vanilla. The vanilla is a little artificial smelling and tasting. The taste is strongly vanilla with a little spicy chia underneath. For me this tea benefits from a little sweetener. I also know that I seem to like sweet teas. For the purpose of carrying it around in my purse and using it at a restaurant this is okay. Would I buy more? Unsure… but I think so. It depends what other teas are available at local grocery store. I rarely buy “good” tea in teabags, so I sort of have to make do with the cheap stuff for eating out. I am unsure about recommending this unless you do really like a strong vanilla but I do and I’ll drink what I have.

Flavors: Cinnamon, Cloves, Vanilla

Retired first grade teacher. I tend to like dessert type/herbal teas as a substitute for sweet treats; flavored black teas and mates to get that energy that I am often lacking ;-p
My husband of 43 years thinks I’m nuts regarding the whole tea thing… but he bought me a Breville for Christmas, so what can I say. :-D
My other interests are reading (books go well with tea :D) and beading. I volunteer at my “old” school teaching reading and I volunteer for the blind. I am trying hard to lose weight ( I have now lost 40 lbs and I’m looking good in my skinny jeans, IMHO) I am now walking about 4.5 miles a day and I am trying to do some core work for about 30 min. 3x a week.

I have been watching Doctor Who for 33years. In case you can’t tell my avatar is two daleks drinking tea! I am always open to swapping Doctor Who books for tea. I have about 120 Doctor Who books that I am eager to send some to a fan. :D Let me know if you would like any books! I love that so many people have begun watching DW!

Also I love swaps, pm me if you’d like to do a swap.

Since I find others’ rating legends helpful, I added my own.

95-100 A once in a lifetime experience; the best there is; will keep this stocked until the cows come home

90-94 First rate; top notch; really terrific; will definitely buy more

80-89 Excellent; likely to become a favorite, will likely buy more

70-79 Very good; would enjoy again, might buy again if in the mood for this particular one or a better, similar version not available or it’s on a really good sale :-)

50-69 Good; wouldn’t pass up if offered, but probably wouldn’t buy again unless craving this particular flavor

Below 50 Meh! Wouldn’t bother drinking it again.
