drank Chai Tea Latte by Panera

I had this today with lunch (a Mediterranean Veggie Sandwich). This is very sweet and more milk than tea but it is still yummy. It has a primary flavor of ginger with a background of cinnamon and cloves. I really quite enjoy it, but you really can’t taste the tea part.

Funny, I’m extremely sensitive to anything remotely considered sweetness in chai, but I actually like this one.

drank Earl Grey Creme by Art of Tea

My classes got canceled this morning so I got to sleep in til 10:30 (yay). I decided to have a cup of this to celebrate seeing as its one of my favorites. I have found that the creme flavors comes out more in this if I prepare it at green tea like temps and steep it for 6 minutes. Unfortunately I got distracted and steeped it for 7 minutes so its a little bitter but I salvaged it with a splash of milk.

I was about 3 sips into this when I dropped the cup :( yesterday morning. It was only bagged tea I picked up before class but lost tea is lost tea. Not to mention I was tired and thirsty all morning

I had this tea at 3pm with cookies as a homework break. I don’t really enjoy hibiscus but I don’t hate it either and I liked its combination with darjeeling here. It really gave the tea a berry feel. Plus it gets bonus points for reminding me of a tea my mom used to make me in middle school.

drank Focus by Tazo

I had this tea at 11:30am before starting my epic day of homework. I thought the caffeine boost would be needed and the name seemed appropriate.
It tastes a lot like there Awake tea (which I enjoy) but with orange flavoring. I enjoyed it!

Preparation
Boiling 5 min, 0 sec

I am the first one to log this! I’m surprised. I got this tea spice for Christmas and decided to test it out last night. I made stir fried broccoli spiced with this and I put it over rice prepared in green tea. I am not sure how much I could taste all the green tea that was in the meal but it sure was yummy!

I got this in a swap with brandy3392 – thanks!! I just got my package yesterday and decided to break into it this morning. I like the idea of a black tea with jasmine. I think I might decrease the steep time next time i make this tea because it was a little bitter but definitely not undrinkable. Also the bitterness went well with my maple quaker squares. I think this is a really solid breakfast tea with an interesting twist of jasmine. I definitely enjoyed this cup.

I had a cup of this today after my last class of my first week of classes. I also brought a cup with me to class earlier in the week. It is quite yummy. I have been finding myself craving this tea lately. I really like the fruity blueberry flavor combined with the creamy vanilla – mmm.

drank Masala Chai by Adagio Teas

Had a nice cup of this with some cookies after a very icy and wet first day of classes. I figured chai would be the perfect way to warm up and this really hit the spot. Not to mention the much needed caffeine.

Profile

Bio

I am a typical college student, an Evolutionary Anthropology major. I spend most of my time hanging out with my boyfriend and friends, playing TF2 and popcap games, reading, and of course drinking tea.

I first started drinking tea every morning when I was a freshman in high school. I have recently discovered the joys of loose leaf, and I absolutely adore trying new teas (especially ones that sound like desserts)…Although I will always have my old favorite: big bold breakfast teas and my new favorite: wonderfully flavorful rooiboses.
