So, what did the pup think of the tea today after his "sniff"?

I expected not to enjoy this one at all because I haven't particularly cared for any of the teas that included ginger that the CommuniTEA has sent me so far, but this wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. If you like ginger flavor, this is a really lovely tea. The ginger has a fresh sort of flavor and is definitely present. The bitterness of the black tea isn't quite as heavy as it normally is (and I accidentally oversteeped it, to boot) . It's also not quite as astringent as most black teas are, in my experience. Since I'm not a fan of the flavor, it's kind of meh for me, but objectively speaking, this is a pretty lovely tea.

This is incredible. It's a soft, almost mild-flavored black tea that has some pretty complex layering to it. Drinking this as a casual tea-drinker, I might not have noticed the complexities, but because I was tasting it specifically to review it on the CommuniTEA, I paid closer attention. This tea is a little bit earthy, a little bit floral, and a tiny bit fruity, and these flavors don't all hit at once. They mingle together upon sipping and seem to break apart and take turns registering on your tastebuds in the aftertaste. It's actually kind of genius and I think I might be in love... Another one for the wishlist!

I didn't actually know what to expect with this tea because I don't actually know what turmeric tastes like, but this had ginger listed in the ingredients on the CommuniTEA packet so I went in prepared not to like it very much. I was pleasantly surprised! I really love this. I'm not big on spiced teas but this balances really nicely so the spice doesn't punch you in the mouth so much as it tickles your tongue as an afterthought. I genuinely don't know how to describe this except that it reminds me a bit of spiced apple cider? That's as close a description as I can come up with with no frame of reference for turmeric lol.

I feel like I should say straight out of the gate, I do not like chai teas. Ginger in tea is not my thing at all. So I kind of hated this tea, personally. However...when I review a tea for the CommuniTEA, I try to look at it objectively so that someone who DOES like chai (I can't imagine someone who doesn't looking through the reviews for guidance on whether or not to buy this blend) would be able to use my review to help them decide if they should purchase or sample it. That established, I found this to be a pretty bland chai overall. I'm temporarily on a diet that's restrictive enough that I couldn't add the suggested coconut milk or sugar, so I can't say I got the suggested experience out of it; this review is based on drinking it naked. I don't much care for coconut normally, but the coconut flavor in this particular chai complimented it more than overpowered it. I didn't get any of the lemongrass flavor until the aftertaste started to kick in, and at that point, it started to really shine. For me, the ginger kind of overtakes most of the other flavors until you get to the aftertaste or if you let it sit in your mouth for a few seconds to savor it before swallowing your sip. The texture is, in fact, creamy even without adding the suggested coconut milk, which was an interesting experience, admittedly. Tasting the mild flavors while getting that creamy mouthfeel was an unexpected dichotomy that pleasantly surprised me. Finally, I would definitely recommend finishing this while it's hot. I got distracted mid-tasting/reviewing with some urgent work stuff and by the time I got to the latter half of my mug, it had gone to the cooler end of the tepid spectrum...and was NOT pleasant, in my opinion. It felt like it had gone quite flatter and the flavors held off a bit longer before making themselves known, so it was almost like when I first sipped, I was sipping room temperature water that smelled like ginger...and then after I swallowed, my tastebuds went 'OHHHH no, okay, this is tea, got it' as opposed to just tasting it right when I sipped. Objectively speaking, if you like coconut and chai teas, this is a really cool tea and you should definitely give it a go. I'd never drink it again personally, but I'm not the target audience for this particular tea. It's worth a shot if you're a spicy tea fan, for sure, even if coconut isn't necessarily your thing.
