I’ve reviewed this tea before & it is delicious. As a chai, I especially like that it leans a little heavy to the ginger side, rather than to the cinnamon end of things. My sister, MsWhatsit, reviewed a chai yesterday, commenting on how cinnamon tends to take over the show in most chai formulas, & I’m in agreement with her.

This was steeped in a 2 part process. First I filled my mug about 2/3 full of hot water with a double portion of tea. Then I heated enough coconut milk (from the can, not the carton) to finish filling the cup, dropped the tea in there to resteep, & strained in back into the cup, adding a little stevia. It’s a VERY creamy chai latte!

It’s bubble bath time!

That’s a good way to drink this chai, about the cinnamon…I think some companies use inferior cinnamon too that can be bitter. Really good cinnamon is sweet and light without bitterness and you don’t have to use so much. The other thing that I don’t like in my chai is overuse of cardamom and overuse of cloves and black pepper. They can take over too.

Bio

I’m so excited to have found this community! I’m a self-employed Harpist (acoustic & electric – Originals, Classical, Rock, Jazz, etc) & Singer/Songwriter. My days & nights revolve around teaching at home, playing gigs, gardening,& fixing awesome food to eat. My schedule is different everyday, but I just go with the flow, & I sip a lot of tea!

My love of Tea began with Herbals back in the 70’s. One of my favorites was a licorice blend from House of Hezekiah, an old tea shop in Kansas City. There was also a tea with mint, rose petals, chamomile, etc called Nuclear Casual Tea.
In the 80’s I gave up caffeine, chocolate, alcohol, (& a few illicit substances…), and brewed medicinal blends & tinctures to support 4 pregnancies (all children born at home). In the 90’s my love affair with green teas began when I discovered ‘The Republic of Tea’. Their beautiful teas & packaging inspired my original song, “TeaMind”, from my CD “Zen Breakfast”. If you’d like to hear the song for free, drop by my website.

In general, I drink my teas straight, but occasionally I add a pinch of Stevia & maybe some coconut or almond milk (I’m allergic to dairy, gluten, & various other things & avoid most sweets.)

I’ve explored a variety of teas:
Whites tend to be a little bland…sorry
Oolongs – wonderfully sensual
Roobios – I’m not a fan in general
Puehr – a fairly new direction for me
I’m not a huge fan of flavored teas, but I do make exceptions, & I’ll try just about anything once.

And Black Tea, Oh how I love thee!!
I am on a quest for the most wonderful breakfast cup! I will find you, my Love!
