This is back in my cupboard, yay! About a year ago I had this as my first chai and it came from Dexter3657 . I vowed then that it was going to be a purchase and thought this was the best chai ever. It was a no brainer that I would order this once I placed my verdant order. That order is finally here and oh, there is so much love in these packages waiting for me.

Still remains my favourite chai. I love the way the spices are all there, not too overpowering, not “spicy” at all in that sense. I usually don’t care for ginger in teas but I like this one here, the tingle from it and what must be the peppercorns. I loooove the look of the gojiberries in it too, the red pop against the cardamom green and the black beautiful Laoshan, against the fennel seeds and whatever else.

I tried it without the almond coconut milk at first and it is good that way but with the almond milk it’s all I can do not to down this cup in two big mouthfuls.

So I think next time I will sweeten with chocolate syrup. I mean, I can’t really taste the Laoshan behind all this anyway so I don’t feel too guilty about the sacrilege.

I don’t know what else I can say that hasn’t already been said. This is a classic!

Bio

Im a fairly recent follower of the loose leaf tea drinking cult. March 2013 to be exact. 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 prefer flavoured teas. It’s probably the newbie in me. I just don’t get cravings for a straight black tea. If I end up having one, I drop in a slice of lemon and artificial rum flavouring (ugh, what moron admits to this?). A black tea fixed this way reminds me of skating at an outdoor rink as a young one, with a thermos full of tea made just as I described..

Im learning so I drink them all. everything! 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. Home improvements, mortgage, travel, wine and food have budget priority over tea.
