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!
