Wow, I’ve had a lot of tea today! This is the last bit of a small bag I picked up from the bulk tea section at my grocery store. I had enough leaf to make 3 cups but was only making for me and DH. One cup of chai just won’t do it around here as chai is a social tea only to be made for groups no smaller than two, so instead of having 1 cup’s worth of leaf languishing about, I dumped it all in.

The orange flavoring is not as strong but what of it there is is much stronger/darker. Orange peel instead of orange fruit. Now, neither DH nor I drink coffee unless we have to and even then, we both put lot of sugar and milk in it. That being said, this stronger chai is very coffee-like. Darker, heavier taste with a more acidic bitterness as an aftertaste. Of course, the fact that I made it with sugar and half milk/half water also lends toward the coffee similarity. Our type of coffee. Sweet, creamy, dark and a little acidic.

I’m trying to be a better tea logger and actually post semi-regularly again! I’ve let my tea tasting senses become too complacent – it’s time for some focused and attentive tea drinking!

Sometimes my notices for PMs and such have been questionable. Email me at your own risk at aug3zimm at gmail dot com.


1 – 10 – Bleck. Didn’t finish the cup.
11 – 25 – Drinkable. But don’t punish me by making me have it again.
26 – 40 – Meh. Most likely will see if the husband likes it iced.
41 – 60 – Okayish. Maybe one day I’ll kill off what I have in my pantry.
61 – 75 – Decent. I might pick some up if I needed tea.
76 – 85 – Nice. I’d probably buy but wouldn’t hunt it down.
86 – 100 – Yum! I will hunt down the vendor to get this tea!

Not that anyone but me particularly cares, but there it is.
