With a semi-official verdict of 4 inches of snow (and, still, it keeps pouring down), today is a perfect day for this blend by Rachel. Thanks so much for sending me some of this to try!

Having never had the chestnut blend by itself, I can’t tell exactly what flavor it brings here (but I’ve got a bit of it from Meghann, so I can have it later and compare!), but this blend is really nice. I can taste the caramel, and a hint of the cinnamon (though I think I’d like more cinnamon), and a rich, nutty taste that I assume must be the chestnut. Mostly, though, it’s a solid, strong black tea base that holds up well to the flavors and isn’t overpowered by them. It makes me wish I was snowed in at my mom’s house, with her making beef stew or chicken & dumplings for lunch and watching marathons of Most Evil or other crime shows on the ID channel whilst we craft.

My mom made chicken and pastry (that’s what they call dumplings where I’m from) every time it snowed! It rarely snows here, but I always looked forward to it.

Awwww!

We had a few flurries but it didn’t amount to anything, which is good because I didn’t look up the weather and am strutting around in heeled mary janes!!!

I’ve regularly left my house in my 4" whomp-a$$ boots without checking the weather. They’ve officially become my freezer-moving boots since a freezer goes down almost every time I wear them. Must look for a pair of heeled mary janes now, those sound adorable!

Bio

My love of tea started in 2001, whilst in an internship in London, England. I shared an office with a lovely man who would make me a cup of tea every morning without asking me if I even wanted it. I drink my tea neat now, because I’ve yet to find the sugar/milk combination that lives up to Pablo’s.

I drink any and all kinds of tea, and love trying new brands/varieties/flavors.
