Surprised by chais … and giveaways for five!

A few weeks ago, I received a complimentary package of teas from Good Earth, a selection I was only too happy to try. I reviewed the first three here, all greatly enjoyed. But I put off reviewing the other three because, to be honest with you, they were all chais, and my goodness, chais often taste alike, and what was I possibly going to be able to say about them? "This one was good (or bad). So was this one. So was this one." I was a little concerned about how I would review three chais, actually.

And then I steeped that first chai, Wild Chaild (love the name!), and I was impressed before I even sipped the tea. At first sniff, I got that familiar spicy scent of chai, but there was also a sweet something, almost like a chai had been crossed with a dessert tea. I took a sip. Heavenly! There was a sweet, creamy flavor to the tea, and since I still had not read the ingredients list on the box, I could only nod in agreement when I read it and confirmed that this was a caramel-flavored chai. I adore this tea!

The Organic Starry Chai was the most mysterious of these three chais. Its taste was sweet but not like the Wild Chaild tea. There was a bit of a zing of something fruity, but I couldn't quite figure out what it was until I read the package. Cherry! Just a bit, but enough to make this chai unique.

And Sweet Chai of Mine reminded me very much of the Wild Chaild chai, only instead of caramel, was that … a subtle maple flavor I was detecting? Why yes, yes it was! I certainly wouldn't have feared my taste test of these chais had I known how delightfully different they all are. And today, I want to share samples of all six of these delicious flavors (also including the Cocoa Tango, Sweet & Spicy, and Matcha Maker reviewed earlier) with some of you! I've prepared five envelopes with a teabag of each flavor. If you'd like to win one of these sampler envelopes of Good Earth teas, just leave an "Enter Me" to this post between now and 7 a.m. EST tomorrow and you'll be entered to win. Good luck!
