We had the last of this tisane with the last of the pecan pie. Bittersweet! Although this chai is a bit weak, it has a nice basic spiced flavor. I hope to move on to a more flavorful loose rooibos chai. (I’m a little more bitter than sweet about the end of the pie. I made Dorie Greenspan’s version which is less teeth achingly sugary than the traditional version, and has the addition of a little chocolate and instant espresso, and omg. New favorite Pecan pie!!)

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
