Made a carrot cake for my mom’s birthday, and brought a thermos of this to go with. Mmmmmmmm. I drink rooibos chai several times and week, and love it,

BUT

tasting the black tea in this one with those spices made my heart sing. The black tea chai is my favorite. I will continue to drink my herbal chai so I can sleep at night, but gosh. This was so good (and it was just brewed like regular tea – not even stovetop simmered).

Love the copious cardamom in this one. So chock-full of pods!!

Many thanks to Douton for this tea. (I miss your posts, Doulton! I’ve been reading a lot of Barbara Pym and her writing always makes me think of you.)

I was just thinking the same thing the other day. I always enjoyed her posts as well and she was one of the long-term regulars.

Bio

I love to cook, bake, read, paint, knit, do needlework, and garden. I need my coffee, but I LOVE my tea. I work at an Art School, and attend a large public university doing post-bac work (my BA is in English). I’m interested in the liminal spaces between art and craft, the academic and the practical, the individual and community, and the old and the new. I’m currently exploring these ideas through the disciplines of education, literature, history, and psychology.

I enjoy writing tasting notes, but have decided not to numerically rate teas as of 9/14/10. For an explanation, see my looooong tasting note about Mountain Malt from the Simple Leaf.

My favorites:
Chinese black teas
A good “milk and sugar” English style black
Earl Grey (classic, and in all variations!)
Vanilla teas (classic, and in all variations!)
Jasmine, Rose, Violet and other froofy, flowery teas!
An Occasional Oolong
Flavored Rooibos
Herbal Tisanes
