This chai blend has some pretty awful reviews on Steepster, but it’s not so bad. The flavor is definitely light though. I received this as a sample with one of my orders, but this isn’t one I would buy myself. There isn’t really anything memorable about it.
Flavors: Cardamom, Tobacco

Today is a day for feel-good teas only. It’s our long-term foster kitty’s adoption day, and I’m trying to keep my emotions in check. It’s not an easy feat. The adoption is an absolute perfect match, so I’m really over the moon for our sweet Holly. She’s going to have the very best life. Goodbyes are really hard for me though, so I’m also feeling sad that she’s leaving. She’s been here almost 15 months, our longest foster yet, and I’ll miss her. I wish I could explain to her that this is going to be the best thing that ever happened to her. I wish she could know that she doesn’t have to be scared anymore. That she isn’t being abandoned all over again. I wish I knew how to help her understand. This is the hardest part of fostering for me, but it’s also the part that gives all the rest of it so much meaning. I remember when we adopted each of our cats how excited we were and how much we loved them right away. Seeing that same excitement in each of our adopters’ faces is so very special because I know exactly how they are feeling in that moment. It’s safe to say that today is going to be an emotional day. Please send happy thoughts my way.
I’m starting the day with my absolute favorite. I don’t have much to add that I haven’t already said before. It tastes like strawberry candy. The base is strong and bold, good for a breakfast tea. It’s also wonderful as a resteep. This is a nostalgia tea for me.
Flavors: Candy, Strawberry
I’ve never really been impressed by this one. It pretty much tastes like their Chocolate blend to me, which isn’t a favorite either. I meant to mix this one with their Rose Scented tea, but I completely forgot until after I made the cup. Just wish I could have picked up on the florals with this one but never did. Dropping the rating just a bit from 70.
