Episode 155: Portland Rose City Chai

This tea comes courtesy of Andy Hayes from Plum Deluxe. Andy was kind enough to send me three samples to review for the site, and this one was my first choice — Portland Rose City Chai. It’s an interesting blend of black tea, almond rooibos (ooh!), rose petals, blackberry essence, lemongrass, cardamom, ginger and cinnamon.

This tea smells like a great bouquet of roses, and the blackberry and rose flavors pair so well together with the black tea. Maybe it’s because I drink a ton of chai tea, but I didn’t pick up much on any cardamom, ginger or cinnamon. Even still, it’s a really enjoyable cup of tea with a unique twist. Try it today!

Episode 161: Lavender Chai

Delicate, floral lavender and strong, spicy chai don’t sound like they’d be a great mix. But oh…Southern Boy Teas is here to prove you wrong! This blend features high quality black tea, traditional chai tea spices, and of course, lavender.

It seems like an odd combination, but it totally works! The lavender flavor is a great accent that heightens the cardamom and clove, and overall it’s very well-balanced and smooth. What an awesome tea to try for National Iced Tea Day!
