Thanks to LauraR for sending me this tea!

This is very unusual, I think. Very smoky and quite spicy. I drank this with a little honey but no milk and compared to a few pre-honey sips, the honey definitely brings out the spices and emphasises the smokiness.

When drinking this, it made me visualise sitting in a dark room with thunder in the distance. No idea why. It was very warm, not as in heat warm but as in spice warm. It’s not really an in-your-face chai. I quite like in-your-face chais, but this is good in an unusual way.

My love of tea began when I walked into a shop one day and they were giving out samples of jasmine silver needles. It was absolutely gorgeous, and I have been addicted to tea ever since. Jasmine silver needles remains my favourite tea to this day.

I think my favourite types are white teas and oolongs, though I will pretty much drink anything.

Aside from tea, I’m into Star Wars, music, furniture, food, Lilly Dache hats and vintage clothing.
