100

Ok – I think I now have this down to a science.

4 tsp tea in 1 cup milk, one cup water, simmer 9 minutes, turn it off and let it sit for a minute. Strain into two cups which each have a tsp of honey in them. HEAVEN! Have to nudge this up to 100. Most delicious chai I’ve ever tasted.

Preparation
190 °F / 87 °C 8 min or more

I need to make some Chai again. I have a little container of chai spices from Lupicia, but I just haven’t had the time to make chai “right” lately.

AmazonV – another thing I should add is this steeping method seems to produce more of a caffeine buzz – I was up til 2am!

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
