If there was ever a cold, miserable, rainy night which needed a cup of stovetop Kashmiri Chai to make it better, this would be the night!!!! That milky gently spiced cup of comfort was just what I needed to take the chill from my bones! Delicious and smooth. Just the right amount of spices. Even though it’s a caffeinated tea, I feel relaxed. I’m even yawning! It must be the warm milk. Time for bed and a novel!

Preparation

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
