No. Just no. And it seems it’s unanimous so far. Three notes now say “no, thanks” to this one. And TheTeaFairy who didn’t write a note (yet?) also doesn’t like it based on what she wrote on the ziploc bag she sent my way. There’s too much nutmeg or something in this one. No coconut despite the almond coconut milk I threw in. Usually that additive helps along any chai wannabe. Thank you, TheTeaFairy for crossing this one off my list.

I’m sitting here on my sunny patio reading “A Thousand Splendid Suns” by Khaled Hosseini and I grabbed some veggie samosas and made this chai to help the mood. But this chai will have to be replaced. Thank goodness Laoshan village Chai from Verdant is on its way to me. Yay!

Bio

I started drinking loose leaf tea in the spring of 2013 (why do we feel compelled to mark the date of tea drinking somewhat like addicts counting their sobriety days?)

Never been much into tea before. Growing up in Romania, tea was something mom made for you when you were sick. As an adult, my hot beverage of choice has been coffee, both flavoured and regular. I’ve recently stumbled upon Teavana and DAVIDs TEA and quickly got addicted to the latter. Then came steepster and all else followed.

Formerly a mathematician and insurance adjuster, I gave up the corporate world and am now a professional chef. I drink wine and sometimes cheat on it with tea.

I lean heavily towards flavoured black teas. I’ve started to crave the occasional straight oolong and green but so far unflavoured black teas leave me unimpressed.

I’m learning so I drink them all. Am even introducing myself to pu’erh. So far I can do fine with the sheng cause frankly, they don’t taste like pu’erh to me. The shou is another story.

Note*: The virtual cupboard does NOT contain any of the samples I hold since most of them are one-cup quantity.

Note**: My partner, our home improvements, gadgets, mortgage, travel, wine and food have budget priority over tea.
