When the milk/water mixture is poured on, this tea smells exquisitely of coconut and mellow lemongrass. Absolutely freakin’ delicious! Oh my gosh, this tea has my favorite aspects of chai (the spiciness, the ability to hold up to milk and sugar) and the best parts of thai curry (coconut milk and lemongrass) and just smashes them all together for a perfect chai. I swear, this would be amazing even on cool summer mornings because of the tropical feels it gives off. So cozy, so perfect. I’m officially in love.
Prepared with: 3 teaspoons tea, 6 oz. water and 6 oz. milk heated to boiling together in pan with heaped teaspoon of sugar.

Oh man, it’s even re-steepable. Awesome.

Bio

First and foremost, I’m a Mommy to my one-and-only daughter. After that, I’m a full-time student-nurse working on degree number two. Then, I’m a wife, a voracious reader, and a newly minted lover of loose-tea.

All my life I’ve enjoyed herbal teas, but am ready and willing to explore other flavors and concepts.

Being a full-time mom and student, the ritual of brewing and enjoying the subtlety of tea is extremely appealing.

I tend to like strong teas: original chais (not boring “masala chai”) are a big deal for me, and I’m hunting for new ones that can accompany my breakfast. I love EGs, especially EGCs, and I hope to find the perfect one some day. Not a huge fan of tisanes or overly fruity teas. I’m starting to love greens and whites, but only if they’re generous enough in the flavor department: no wimps. I’ve got to say, though, I really do not understand pu-erh (yet?).

Outta the park: delicious, amazing, a cupboard staple.

Good tea: not a staple, but would brew and/or buy again if in the mood.

50-64
Fair to good: nothing wrong with the tea, but not particularly interesting or not flavored highly enough.

25-49
Not good: can probably finish the cup, but may not brew again.
