I needed a sweet and spicy little something after walking allllllll the way to Whole Foods to get Zhena’s Coconut Chai and…they did not carry any Zhena’s! Was I hallucinating seeing the tins when I was there before!?!? So dissapointed! Anyway! This is hitting the spot. Warm fuzzy tea :) So flavorful and good in the afternoon – the tea is mild but the cinnamon is HOT! Nice pick me up as my vim and vigor is flagging after my sad fruitless coconut chai journey.

My Whole Foods has decided to stop carrying Zhena’s. Perhaps yours did too? I was going to check in Kroger’s health food section.

I wonder why – how sad! Wegman’s has Zhena’s (that’s where I got the Chocolate Chai that I love :) but I’m not due to go there for awhile. I couldn’t leave Whole Paycheck I mean Foods without buying some kind of tea, so I picked up a cinnamon rooibos from a company that is new to me called Paromi. We’ll see – they had some other nice sounding flavors like Chocolate Orange too. They’re expensive for what you get though – 15 full leaf silken sachets for $9.99. Yikes.

(Sigh) At the asphalt-burning rate of 3 miles per hour, it would only take me … 36 hours … to walk to the closest Whole Foods, assuming they’d let me be a pedestrian on the Will Rogers Turnpike. (But officer, it’s for a healthy reason!)

Oh my goodness gmathis!!! Imagine if I walked for 36 hours then they didn’t have the tea! I shouldn’t complain :) I only walked 1 hour round trip :) :) :)

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
