Got back from visiting my adorable niece over the holiday weekend to find that California is, for once, COLDER than Oregon. WTF. Clearly, this is a job for…copious amounts of tea!

Brewed this up on the stovetop using almond milk. Delicious and creamy as usual, a great tea to start with after being stuck under my brother’s Tea Purist Iron Thumb for a couple of days. Didn’t get as much cheesecake as I usually do, but then I also slurped it right up, so perhaps I wasn’t paying enough attention.


this. sounds. delicious.


agreed. yum!

This has been a tea I am drinking every day. I hope Frank blends another amazing chai soon. Maybe that is what the special Christmas tea blend is? I can’t wait find out what that blend will be.


Oh, a Christmas Chai! Nom!!

Meghann M

I wonder if orange and chai would work. I like orange spice teas, and orange chocolates. Maybe a tea that tastes like the Chocolate oranges you hit on a hard surface to break off the sections? Plus chai spices? Yummy!

Kaitlin S

I think an orange flavored chai would be awesome. Or..chocolate orange chai? Too much? I’m not sure. :)


Oh, please, yes: chocolate orange chai. Nom!!

Is this one going to be reblended? Please? It’s nummy, and my little sample from Meghann is almost gone.

You don’t want me to cry, Frank, do you?

Ooooh GUILT TRIP! I like it! Not that Frank wants us to cry, but I threatened that w/ the Cucumber Melon and it didn’t work… :,(


When I was in college, I had a crying fit over my senior thesis paper (incapatible software, school had new version, parents had old, I had a breakdown because I didn’t think I’d get it finished, etc). My dad brought me a laptop home the next day.

Don’t underestimate my pouts! :-P

Oh, and would it help to say that I’d get a pound if it was available again?

Southern Boy Teas

I will typically reblend just about anything if you are willing to purchase a minimum of one pound. If you really want a pound of it, I will get to work on it (going to be blending a bunch of things today anyway).


sigh Will you give me a job when I go into major debt?

Yes, I wants. And there’s a few others that are still in stock I want, too. Any way it could be done decaf?


Frank, sign me up for a pound of the cucumber melon in Jan. I need a bit of time to get the funds and that gives you time to get a hold of the cucumber- I know that isn’t easy for you. Could you make a cucumber (or cucumber + another flavor… melon? wasabi?) matcha at the same time?

Southern Boy Teas

I’m afraid the cucumber is a bit of a different deal. I don’t have any more cucumber flavoring and would have to buy enough for 800lbs of tea to get it. Probably not going to happen any time soon.

Jaime, I’m afraid I don’t have the supplies to do a decaf version.


No worries. I still wants. PM me with details on what to do?


If it’s not too much trouble, I’d like a bit of the vanilla cheesecake chai when it’s reblended… but I don’t want a whole pound! How much will you be reblending?


Haha well then if something you know I desperately want back doesn’t qualify for “just about anything” please say something right away so I don’t get disappointed all over again. :( I could come up w/ a lot of different things for you to do w/ the cucumber though:)


LiberTEAS: do you want part of my pound when I get it?


Jaime: Sure… I’d be happy with just a bit of it so that I could brew a mug of it and try it out… maybe by that time we can work out a few things of mine that you’d like to try and we can do another swap. :)


I’ll have a whole pound, I’m sure I can spare some!! I think another swap sounds great!! I am rather sad: I went to get that last bit of your breakfast blend and somebody had beaten me to it!!


I actually do still have 2 ounces of the breakfast blend – I just went and checked on it. I think I had taken it off the website because I thought I was out of the 2 ounce tins… but I’m not. So… I’ve reactivated this item if you want it!


Mine mine mine mine mine!!!! Thank you!!!

Meghann M

hehehe…Glad you enjoyed the Vanilla Cheesecake Chai enough to want 1lb of it, Jaime. If it doesn’t get reblended soon, I can certainly send you some in the next package. I still have 3oz or so left from the big memorial day sale Frank had!

Frank, would you have enough watermelon raspberry green supplies to blend another pound up?

RachanaC (Rachel)-iHeartTeas

Gee we girls sure do fight over Frank’s talents. I wonder if he is noticing that too. LOL :-).

This is pretty darned good!!!
The vanilla is quite noticeable. It’s very creamy! And the chai spices are really great! I wouldn’t say it was a cheesecake taste but it’s fairly close! Overall I am really LOVING the mixture of flavors and enjoy the spice but love the creaminess to it! YUM!

Thanks French Vanilla!


52teas is brilliant! I’m anxiously awaiting my order from Frank! :)


Frank is awesome!!!!

I got this in the mail today from Meghann M who was generous enough to send me some. Thanks very much!

I made this using the stovetop method, which I have never done before. I was nervous, having read some horror stories of curdling milk lately. I could tell I was doing something right when I licked the spoon. Oh boy, this was gonna be good.

This tastes like regular chai to me (which is delicious and super decadent). I definitely taste the vanilla, but the cheesecake not so much. The spices taste fairly muted, so perhaps I should add more leaf next time. It will be interesting to compare the chocolate version of this, which Meghann M also kindly sent.

This is one of the more delicious drinks I’ve ever made. Today has been a good, good day.


Yay for chai success- both in the chai itself and in the prep!

Meghann M

Yay! Glad the preparation and tea worked well for you. I think I best wait a week or so to avoid any milk mishaps. I wish there were more cheesecakey flavor to this. Maybe it will be found in the chocolate version.

Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me a bit of this tea. I am so happy to be able to try it!

This is a delightful chai! Not as robust as some of 52Teas other chai blends, but, it more than makes up for it in sweet, creamy vanilla bean-y and cheesecake-y flavor! The cheesecake is a little more withdrawn than the vanilla flavor, but I can taste a very subtle tangy note.

Frank… if you’re reading this (and I know you are!) You should DEFINITELY include this in the 12 Days of Christmas package this year. :)


I don’t remember seeing this blend…when did it get made?


This one is from 2009, I think last year, Frank had a special sale in which he was trying to sell off his tins … and this is one of the teas offered back then.


Oooh, it’s WAY back! : )

I didn’t get a strong vanilla flavor nor a cheesecake feel. It was there but I had to really concentrate. I usually prefer keeping my thoughts at a minimum while drinking tea. However, if it was labeled with a different name say… Creamy Smooth Chai I would have agreed. Don’t get me wrong this tea is yummy but not what I expected based on the name on the label. It is has a medium/light body, super smooth, not a hint of bitterness, and just mellow. The chai spices are blended perfectly. However, I am giving it a lower point value only because it wasn’t what I expected based on the label not because of the flavor, it was good.

Sad day! I have this coming too.

RachanaC (Rachel)-iHeartTeas

Oh don’t be sad….it may work for you. Maybe my taste buds were lying to me. I will try again next week and see what happens.

Star Trek brunch. This tea smells really good. Mostly like spices, but some like vanilla. It makes for a creamy vanilla chai.
Don’t really taste any vanilla beans or cheesecake.

Boiling 4 min, 15 sec

Star Trek brunch!? That sounds like a fun time!

Lariel of Lórien

I was making brunch and Star Trek was on. Since it’s Picard, I should be drinking earl grey.


TNG brunch WOOT! :D

I’m thinking that the cheesecake flavor may come across stronger thru vanilla than chocolate- or at least I hope it does.

Like the chocolate, this has no large green cardamom pods- so that’s a few points off right there. The aroma is extremely light- definitely not a “smack ya in the face” tea. And like the chocolate, the liquor is a light reddish brown- possibly lighter than the chocolate, but I’m not sure w/o doing a side by side.

1 heaping tsp (only 3.3g!)/6oz, hot and clean

Wow. This tea is disappointing. VERY little, if any, vanilla,…no cheesecake… very little spice. The black tea base has absolutely no problems coming thru the flavors- in fact it’s by far the strongest- but even the mouth feel and flavor are quite watery. A very smooth, light black tea w/ just a faint touch of spice. I hope these 2 are better w/ milk.

205 °F / 96 °C 5 min, 0 sec

I definitely prefer it with milk, I think it brings out the flavors much better. What’s weird is that my tin totally has cardamon pods…suspicious! (suspicious of what? I don’t know. the cardamon pods I suppose. perhaps they are hiding?)

Oh, what a sweet way to break up the day! After I dragged my husband around our local antique mall (no die-for teapots, sadly!) we needed something to perk ourselves back up with. This did the job perfectly. The first sip, sans additives, had me a little worried but a bit of sweetener and a dash of milk transformed it into a much richer treat. I don’t really taste the tang of cheesecake, but it does make for a creamy vanilla chai. Thank you, Short Sorceress, for the opportunity to try this great tea!
