drank Chai Spice by Verdant Tea
2913 tasting notes

This is not the exact Chai Spice recipe from the Chai Spice that came in our January Tea of the Month package, however it has many of the same ingredients, with the addition of goji berries, so I’m just going to use it, because they have the same name. So there!

I just enjoyed a lunch of Greek sliders, baked sweet potato with cinnamon, & cukes. I wanted to follow that with something sweet & spicey. I combined 2 t of the chai spices with 8oz water, simmered for 5 minutes (really probably 6), added 1 t of Yu Lu, steeped for 3 minutes, meanwhile I heated up a cup of almond milk, then added it at the end.

Unsweetened: ginger & a touch of salt

With Stevia: oh baby! It really tastes reminiscent of a ginger snap cookie.

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!
