Review of Samurai Chai Mate

6 of 103 of 53 of 563 of 100

Though the instructions say to steep this tea 5-6 minutes, I've found steeping it for 4 produces a more delicate flavor that I prefer. The only distinct aroma I can smell is a light cinnamon scent. It's not an especially complex tea, but it's nice.

I remember getting this because I enjoyed their free sample at the store, not realizing that it had been blended with something else. There the taste was more well rounded and sweeter.

Also, I've tried this drink cold and found it more enjoyable. I don't know how this is but, apparently, unlike food and other drinks, tea seems to taste sweeter when cold. Or perhaps I'm simply lucking out with my selections? Do others experience this?

I don't remember how much I paid for this one, but Teavana generally runs expensive.

A little late to the review, but Adagio has a samurai mate and a raja oolong chai that I totally recommend! It is also much cheaper at around 25$ a pound, compared to Teavana's >125$ a pound.

I am a fan of Adagio. I’ll have to check that out!
