This is a pretty cardamom-heavy chai on a green base. You can really taste the green tea, but I don’t notice any of the other spices other than the cardamom. I don’t prefer green chai, but it wasn’t unpleasant. The green tea did get a little bitter as it sat, but some oat milk and sugar brought it together decently well.

Show of hands…how many of you have zoned out while pouring water for a green tea and realized after the cup was half full that the water shouldn’t have been boiling? (Please let there be somebody besides me!) If there is a method for un-pouring improperly temp’ed water, please let me know!

Ah, well.

Fortunately, Cuppa Geek’s Comforting Cup turned out to be a Very Forgiving Cup as well. The orange and chai spices covered for any bitterness I may have caused by my blunder. Marshmallow root is fast becoming one of my favorite tea ingredients as well; it gently blunts the sharp edges of spices and tart things. All in all, this is tasty and reminds be of a spicier, edgier counterpart to old faithful Constant Comment (my barometer for all teas orangey and spicy).

Mastress Alita

I have done it, noticing the second the water hit the leaves I had the wrong temp, and even then I knew it was too late and had to toss them, measure out fresh leaf, wait for the kettle to cool to the right temp, and re-brew.

Veronica

Oh yeah, I’ve done that once or twice. Much stomping about and muttering of not so nice phrases might have followed. :)

Leafhopper

I did this with a Liu An Gua Pian a few years ago, and having only a 10 g sample, I decided to drink the cup. It was surprisingly good. :)

Mastress Alita

Ya, in my case I was working on sipping down a 50g bag, so it didn’t feel like a huge loss. If I only had a 10g sample, I probably would’ve just swallowed my user error too.

Martin Bednář

I did this common user error several times. I think I always decided to drink it. I remember once it was really bad experience. But C’est La Vie.

CuppaGeek Advent Calendar – Day 25

Merry Christmas Steepster!

I am starting my day with this bonus tea from the Cuppa Geek advent. Unfortunately, I don’t love this one. I blame the green tea base but also maybe the cider component. Something is just throwing me because I expect spices and then it cuts through with a different flavor that isn’t for me.

Courtney

Merry Christmas!

I woke up this morning with a heavy, unsettled feeling. I don’t really know why. Overthinking? Bad dream I don’t remember? General Covid dreams? Sometimes that’s just how it is.

I had five students coming. They were starting earlier than usual. I needed to feel better.

I couldn’t decide what to have for breakfast. I paused, stood on tiptoe (yes, I am really short) and said a quick prayer. “Lord, I could really use some tea that would feel comforting this morning.”

Reached in and pulled out THIS TEA. I kid you not. I thought, “Well, yeah, okay, it says it is comforting but now what do I eat with a chai when I am tired of waffles?” Then I remembered some fig jam I had made a few months ago. Fig jam is a very cuddly food to me.

Ding ding ding! Toast with fig jam and Comforting Chai! Things were looking up.

This had all the attributes I expect in a chai, like cinnamon and cardamom and a mouth tingle from the clove, but all slightly softer. The green tea is softer than the Assam tea most companies use as a base for chai, too. It was all nice and warming and….comforting. Just like it says. The spices gave me a good wake up and lots of flavor, with no harsh edges.

ashmanra The joy I get from reading your dear tasting notes is really a balm for these challenging times we’re in. Thank you!

Lexie Aleah

I agree your tea notes are always so lovely to read.

Martin Bednář

This is so great tasting note, so nice to read and… fig jam with chai seems great too. It must be indeed comforting!

gmathis

Sometimes, it’s the tea…sometimes it’s the song on the radio…this one was balm to my weary heart this morning. And yes, it’s bluegrass! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2orhK9HRxAk&list=RD2orhK9HRxAk&start_radio=1

ashmanra

Thank you for your kind words! I love my Steepster friends. You are the best!

Gmathis: I went over and had a listen! I like bluegrass! It was very good and certainly a real pepper-upper! I have to ask my husband why they sprayed WD-40 on the banjo.

Also, I noticed they are from a group called the Purple Hulls. Do people outside of Southern rural communities know what purple hulls are? I don’t think I have ever seen purple hull peas in grocery chains.

gmathis

You can find purple hulls as far north as we are, sometimes—my parents liked ’em in lieu of blackeyed peas.

The PH’s have one for us Sunday school geeks called “Matthew’s Begats” that made me snort my Irish Breakfast on the way to work one morning.

ashmanra

I will have to look for that!

gmathis

You can find them canned locally as far north as I am, but I think that may be the outer limits. Have never seen them in the produce section.

As to the PH’s, they just make my heart happy. Go look for their “Matthew’s Begats.” Perfect for Sunday geeks like me :)

ashmanra

So Matthew’s Begats was written by Andrew Peterson, who wrote the song My Love Has Gone Across the Sea, which brings me to ugly crying tears. It was written for The Wingfeather Saga, which I have not yet read.

gmathis

A friend with preteens highly, highly recommended Wingfeather to me, but I haven’t imbibed just yet. (And I love Andrew Peterson, too.)

Cardamom and clove chai? Yes.
Comforting? Maybe.
I wish this had more cinnamon or ginger, it’s kinda boring. I added some new sweetener I’m trying out, agave inulin powder, to the second steep. I’m more interested in how slightly sweet this is than the tea.

Nichole/CuppaGeek

I think this one needs a new recipe worked up. I don’t think the flavorings held on like I hoped they would.

Courtney

That’s funny — I always want less cinnamon and ginger, and more cardamom haha!

Shae

I love clove-heavy chai blends and cardamom is just so special. I might give this one a try!

Shae

Oh darn, just saw that it’s a green tea. I have such bad luck with those.

Michelle

This one is so clove and cardamom heavy, I didn’t even notice it was green tea!

Shae

May be back on my list then!

Advent Day 6, From the Depths of the Grab Bag.

“Alright! Its got cinnamon and cloves, maybe some star anise, lot of clove though. Maybe orange, I’m not sure. Maybe it’s a little… Maybe it’s got a little fennel seed in it. I won’t be able to tell more until after I taste it, so don’t ask me cackle

It’s very holiday like. A lot of clove which is not my favorite thing but I can appreciate the clove quality. It’s alright. It’s.. it’s drinkable. I taste the flavor of green tea. I think it needs sugar. It’s ok, it tastes like a tonic. I’d say it’s like a 3 (out of 10) on the scale. I’d only recommend it if you like clove. If you like clove, it’s highly recommended. "

<me, poking> You pretty much just repeated yourself there.

“That’s right, except I said highly. burrp burrp sips Ohh ohhhhh.”

ashmanra

LOLOLOL!

This wasn’t bad tea per se, but I had higher hopes.

It was mellow green tea with cloves, but that’s all I have noticed.

This blend isn’t too spicy and has the added caramel and cider flavors to give you the sense of fall without being overwhelming. I don’t noticed any caramel nor cider flavours. But certainly it isn’t overwhelming and isn’t too spicy. Bit boring.

Flavors: Cloves
