Today, Jason and I visited Whittard of Chelsea on Newbury Street in Boston. We found that they were offering tastings, so Jason and I gladly drank what they provided us: cinnamon chai and organic rooibos. Neither one of us were very impressed by the rooibos. I felt that it had a very weak impression of a tea. (i.e. It was a rather bland tea.) But I didn’t mind the chai. I was not so wowed by it that I bought a bag, but I did not think it was the worst thing I had ever tried. My curiosity was piqued by the smelling of chocolate chai. Have any of you tried this chai? Jason and I mostly went to Whittard to look for a decaffeinated black tea for Jason’s grandmother for her birthday, which is not until August but I like to get an early start. I was not overly impressed by the selection at the store, but the customer service was excellent. Like I say/said in a previous post, I think I will just stick with Upton Tea Imports and other online tea stores.
