I could have sworn that I logged this before, back when I got it around Christmas, but alas it seems that I did not. Usually Teavana is WAY out of my budget based on the quality, but the Heavenly sale was just impossible to resist. I ended up with 8 ounces of this for something like $6? Okay, actually I didn’t buy the blended version (since it’s been switched for a chai/chai blend I don’t care for) but I got them individually and mixed ‘em up so essentially it’s the same thing.

I’m having this stovetop method, mixed with milk & honey and simmered for a good ten minutes. It’s so good—not to cinnamony like their other chai blend, and with a really nice fruity pop along with a hint of citrus in the background and a whole lot of spice. I know people hate on Teavana a lot but they really do have some gems mixed in with all the overly-hibiscus berry blends. One of my favorite chais!

Bio

Tea has always been a passion of mine, though I got away from it during college. A lack of cupboard space and a constant influx of people into my suite made me pretty much abandon my teas at home. But now that I’m done with school, it’s definitely come back with a vengeance—to the point where I’ve purchased about 65 different kinds in the past 3 months!

I like most kinds of teas—yes, even peach, which I used to think I disliked!. Oolongs are definitely my favorite, and I’m an avid fan of earl grey, floral teas, and chai blends along with anything melon. The only kind of teas on my “no” list are rooibos blends (which gives me headaches) and banana flavored ones since bananas are public enemy #1 in my mind.

The best thing about tea for me is how you can be passionate about it and still have it integrate into all of your other hobbies. I like a lot of things: writing, video games, books, sewing, figure collecting, astronomy… it’s a long list. But whatever I’m doing, I can have a cup of tea in hand!
