From A Quarter to Tea

Amontillado Chai Black Tea:
Originally Featured in Authored Adornment’s October Box

Inspired by the Edgar Allen Poe short story, The Cask of Amontillado, this tea features flavors that might be found in that sherry namesake. Citrus sherry flavored tea with a blend of traditional chai spices and mulling spice. Goji berries are added for a pop of red that conjures an image of something more sinister under the surface!

I have just a handful of these left, as they were originally in a (really awesome) subscription box, so once it is gone, it’s gone for good. It is sold only in 0.5oz quantities.

Ingredients:

black tea, dried goji berries, cinnamon, fennel, ginger, anise, clove, cardamom, peppercorns, allspice, star anise, orange peel, natural flavors

I’ve had this tea for a year now I’m guessing, so it has aged and likely lost flavor. I must have had it when I first got it, but wasn’t taken by it and having it again now, I’m not that into it. The citrus flavor tastes aged (don’t leave it in a cupboard for a year) and the rest of it tastes a little bland. It’s hard to imagine the flavor being stronger making much of a difference in my interest in this tea. This one isn’t for me, but I had a lot of fun trying interesting new flavor combos in my first AQ2T order and will likely be placing another order soon.

Sample from Evol Ving Ness this one is interesting to me. I enjoyed it but i’m not sure i could drink this in copious amounts. I really like the smoothness of this one and the pop of cherry like flavour in the background. the other spices don’t overpower either which is nice… but i think utimately the cherry and cinnamon? give it a slightly weird taste that i couldn’t drink a lot of. lol 1 cup = good. many cups = can’t do it haha

This is a queued tasting note.

Saw this one up on QTT’s site and instantly knew I needed it just because of the name. Damn literary teas dragging me in ‘cause I’m a big ol’ nerd…

Seriously though; I love Edgar Allan Poe and if there’s any of his works that could translate really well to a tea format it’s The Cask of Amontillado since that’s focused around a drink. So I was really excited to see how this one works, despite it being a Chai. And it’s good! Great, in fact. Even if this wasn’t Poe themed I think I’d genuinely love it, but the fact it had such a mulled wine like flavour on top of being based around an actual wine is just really perfect.

Seriously, I’d say the bulk of the flavour is medium bodied, smooth and enticing red berry/red fruit notes and citrus complimented by undertones of Chai spice. The fennel and clove stand out from the general “chai spice” flavor as well, and as those are two flavours I really like so it’s an even bigger draw in for me. It just feels masterfully balanced and very easy to sip on/relax to. All of the flavours are well rounded, and there’s no unpleasant bitterness or astringency.

Easily one of best Chais I’ve had in a long time.
