drank Chai Spice by Verdant Tea
2897 tasting notes

I can’t believe I still have some of this!
I’m not currently a member of the TOMC, but I did really enjoy my membership! This is the 3rd tea from last January’s box, & I had just enough Yu Lu to make a potent cup, so that it’s a sipdown on both of them! There was a little almond milk in the fridge, so I added that, & I also borrowed my son’s Keifer grains, gave them a water bath yesterday to get all the milk out, and made a quart of coconut milk keifer, which turns out is ready, so I added some of that, & WOW! This is the most luxurious feeling Chai I think I’ve ever had! The coconut milk keifer is a little tangy, & so thick & creamy. I use canned coconut milk, not that grotesque crap they sell in the dairy case, & I love it! If you let it age long enough, it becomes yogurt which, for someone like me, is a rare treat indeed.

Verdant’s Chai spice is a little unusual in it’s spicing, & I’ve learned that I need to use quite a bit more than they recommend, because I tend to like my Chai a little strong. But this cup of yum, which is gone already, beats Starbuck’s Tazo Chai by a long shot!

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!
