You added extra cinnamon and raisins but no butter? Now that is a review I’d love to read=D

i was thinking about adding butter, but then i figured it would be a weird oily film on top, i almost added some coconut pouchong because it is so buttery, but i love it so much i didn’t want to use it if the tweak turned out awful

Bio

I am The Devotea USA. I love caffeine! I prefer tea to coffee. I prefer my flavors to be in your face, not subtle. I plan to use this blog to keep track of the teas I have tried.

I get my daily dose of caffeine from Starbucks (Grande soy no water chai latte).

~~~~~~~~*~
0-25=Bleh! not again if it were free
25-50=Acceptable, if it were free or there were limited other tea options
50-75=I might purchase this tea from time to time, or select it while out
75-100=A staple in our cupboard from now on, I will purchase and keep purchasing
