Thank you to Indigobloom for sending me a sample of this tea!

I had dinner tonight with a friend at Herbivore and got the chick*n mole with rice and beans and an iced tea. I wanted to get some reading done but I’m sooo tired for some reason. I thought this might perk me up.

A lot of people seemed not to like this too much but I like it fairly well. It seems more like a dessert tea than an actual chai, however. The black tea base seems kind of sweet and I am getting a lot of vanilla here as well as the creamy coconut There’s a touch of ginger in there somewhere. I did add some soymilk to mine but I prepared it the old fashioned way, in the For Life teapot.

I usually have chais as a dessert tea anyway, so this would be fine by me.

Herbivore’s menu looks awesome-so nice to be able to order anything you want without having to ask lots of questions! I probably couldn’t even decide what to order. Do you ever go to Millenium?

So glad you like this one Amy, it def is an interesting combo

@ScottB- I didn’t see your question until just now. Yes, I have been to Millenium quite a few times but it is much more posh and pricey than Herbivore. I was at Herbivore today and got the scrambled tofu – good times!

Amy-I’ve heard vegans visiting SF like to make a pilgrimmage to Millenium. You’re so lucky to have a casual vegan and upscale vegan place to dine. The fanciest all-vegan restaurant I’ve been to was Karyn’s on Green in Chicago-but it’s probably not as good as Millenium.

Hobbies include: tea, making art, animals, vegan things, buddhism, nature, creativity, books, writing, cooking, meditation, yoga.

I am a fan of many different teas but my favorites are blacks and oolongs, chai, also like darjeeling and pu-erh. I’n always learning and expanding my horizons!

Dislikes include: bergamot, jasmine, highly tannic or bitter teas, overly judgmental and bitter people. :)

Live in San Francisco, I’m a SINK (single income, no kids) and love the urban life, but traveling out to the middle of nowhere is always fun too.

I tend to not drink things I know I will hate so a lot of my tea ratings are on the higher side. Here’s my rating system, sorta

95-100 I love this tea and would like to keep it around

94-90 An excellent tea which I may or may not repurchase

89-80 Pretty good, above average

79-70 Acceptable

69-60 Mundane – Will probably drink it if I have it
