drank Saigon Chai (organic) by DAVIDsTEA

This is definitely more spicy than sickly-sweet-cinnamony.

Yay!

Steeped 1 cup of tea extra strong, then poured it into some heated almond milk. This is pretty decent!

(Now, don’t get me wrong. I LOVE cinnamon. Sadly, I’d been drinking Teavana’s Maharaja Oolong thing, which IS sickly sweet cinnamony with very little tea flavour. So this is a really nice change.)

I like this one…its what ruined Pumpkin Chai for me, because PC isn’t really chai by comparison.

OMGsrsly

Very true. It’s still not quite what I’m looking for though. I might just buy some masala chai mix at the local Sufi market and add it to a breakfast tea. :)

Bio

Black teas are my favourite, although I do drink the occasional green tea. I am exploring herbal and fruity teas for summer icing and winter evenings, and oolong and pu erh are new and exciting… although I do not like a tea that tastes mostly of seaweed.

No: Spearmint or peppermint, licorice root, gluten (cookie bits, wheat, rye, barley, I’m OK with oats)

After sending my first box to the USA, bubble-envelope swaps are where it’s at.

When I rate, my ratings are based on the little faces, and depend on what face I make when I sip the tea! :)

Also: A map of tea places in Vancouver. I’ve been to some of them, but not a lot. If you have any suggestions, please let me know!
