drank Chocolate Chai by Wegmans
789 tasting notes

Drama, drama, drama. School hasn’t even started yet (we have one more week), and already there’s been tears from my daughter who’s entering eighth grade. She and her friends are working it out, but I have to say this is the part of school I enjoy the least. Junior high girls trying to figure out who they are and where they fit in is the stuff of nightmares. I remember being there myself, but it’s just as tough to watch your kid navigate the junior high years! All of that to say I’m drinking this tea to give myself a little break before going to see how my daughter and her friends are fairing. As much as possible I’d like them to work it out on their own.

I’m liking this chai more and more. It’s wonderfully sweet and spicy, and while there is chocolate it blends with the tea very well. This works for me since I’m not a big chocolate tea fan. I hope Wegman’s keeps this version of this tea for awhile. I like it much more than their previous version. The spice is much more noticeable now, and there seems to be more of the base tea. That, along with the chunks of chocolate, makes this one a keeper.

Maybe I’ll resteep the leaves before wading back into the fray… :)

oof…. our eldest just finished this nonsense and our daughter and son are both starting into it. i keep wondering if i was this crazed in high school? i don’t think so, but hindsight can be fuzzy and remembered differently that what was.

I think all of the technology has added to the problem. I had to convince my daughter to stop texting and actually call her friend. A lot of their argument began over a miscommunication while they were rapid fire texting. It’s second nature to them, so it’s difficult to get them to understand that there are much better ways to work out a problem.

Aww, I hope everything works out with your daughter. Both junior high and high school aren’t very good times, for sure.

My Rating System:

100-95 = Teas I actively seek out and keep in my pantry. If you are a guest in my home chances are I will offer you one or all of these teas. Also, if/when these teas are discontinued I openly mourn their loss.

94-85 = Teas I truly like, often have in my pantry, and sometimes restock. These are my variety-is-the-spice-of-life teas.

84-75 = They’re good teas and I enjoy drinking them on occasion.

74-65 = These teas are ok, but not really my thing.

64-55 = meh.

54-45 = I will if I have no other option.

44 and below = Coffee, please.
