drank Cha Yen Thai by Teavana
2971 tasting notes

I played a wedding over in Illinois today. Tony wanted me to try out his GPS, which I’ve been avoiding. I love technology, but I have gotten lost more than once in IL (it’s so easy), & just wasn’t sure that I could trust the GPS to get me where I was going. Needless to say, it was awesome. When the wedding (which was beautiful except for the baby that screamed the entire time) ended, I checked my starbucks app for a nearby location, entered it’s address into the GPS, & went & got myself a Chai. I also got a new car mug, which I already love! It’s stainless steel on the outside & ceramic on the inside. I love it!

When I got home I brewed a cup of this Cha Yen in my new mug, which is basically a coconut chai, more or less. It’s one of the only Teavana teas that I actually like, & is especially nice with stevia & coconut creamer.

Cool. They didn’t have that tumbler locally. I bought the one that is ceramic inside and out. Haven’t got to try it yet.

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!
