This smells identically to a creme brulee sitting next to a fragrant chai. Stunning, and surprising.

There’s something even more surprising in here, something I can’t quite find. Nutmeg, perhaps? Something spiced, deep, full bodied. I only had one sip before I made it into a chai (Truvia, coconut milk), and didn’t taste any of that. Once as a chai though? Holy moly. This spice, whatever it is, is unique and wonderful. There’s a hint of sweetness to it that comes at the very end and after the sip, sort of like egg custard tha’s been sweetened or even burnt slightly – in a good way. There’s something smoky in there too, with zero heat, yet spice.

Truly delicious blend. Dexter3657, I’ve already put some in the box headed your way next week.

I think I was going to get this and then decided against it. Now I am rethinking that decision.

I meant Chai. I seem to be missing it when the text editor auto-completes lately;).

MissB

Heh. Sounds good, Dexter! I thought you might have grabbed some. VariaTEA, I’ll put that sample in your ongoing bag to send out to you, then.

VariaTEA

Oh MissB, ever so generous. You have sent me so much already, you really do not need to send me anymore.

Bio

A few years ago, the obsession with tea started. The cupboard got bigger and bigger, more swaps occurred, group buys, secret rendezvous with local teapassionistas… and that’s how you end up with 500+ different kinds of tea in your home. At one time.

Now, it’s purge time. Time to gather what’s needed and let go of the rest. Almost all of the tea was given away, sold, or otherwise shared. A few relics still remain. It’s still a challenge to avoid the chipmunk-like hoarding of The Teas, yet, the lightness of being from having so little compels me more. And so, I’m happy to share (anytime!) and will occasionally desire small amounts of tea for swaps, just to try.

As for the day-to-day stuff, I’m focused almost entirely on Love, (yes, with a capital L), Spirit/Self, transformation, and work (dating columnist and consultant).

No-can-do: lavender, overly floral (French florals, or florals that are creamy rather than, well, floral work well!), sugar, Splenda, all grains.

Love: fruity, dessert, chai, spicy, all types of tea.
