Hay gaiz! Remember that Teas’ Tea New York thing that I didn’t like so much because it was too sweet and I didn’t want to try anymore because all of the rest of them would probably be too sweet and gross? I tried another one! Because I do not learn from experience.

Well, actually, the real reason is twofold. One: it amused me that adding ginger to tea turns it into chai now. Two: it was ON SALE.

So here I am, drinking another theoretical “New York” tea. I think I’ve said it before, but sweetness in general is a lot easier to take in milk teas than in just straight black teas for me, and this continues that trend. It’s still too sweet but it works a little better both because it is a “chai” and because it is a milk tea. In fact, this isn’t too bad, although I wouldn’t say that it was all that chai-ish. You can definitely taste the ginger though. Well, I think I can. I mean, I do know it’s there, though. Maybe I’m just imagining it. No no, it’s there. In fact, it kind of makes the entire tea taste like a cookie! I have spent all day trying to figure out what kind of cookie but to no avail, maybe a ginger snap? It definitely reminds me of SOME cookie…I don’t even eat that much cookies why is this so hard? Maybe a snickerdoodle? Let’s go with snickerdoodle. Anyway, it wasn’t too bad. Nice dessert type tea.

Incidentally, I totally saw a chocolate milk tea while at the grocery store yesterday. It is probably so sweet it will instantly give me diabetes, but I am SOOOOO going to try it. For Science!

Bio

I’m a Pole who grew up in Texas, is currently a graduate student in California studying Japan. How’s THAT for random?

Being Polish, my family has always drunk a lot of tea, and I am no different. I may drink more tea than water. On the other hand, I can’t say that I’m very particular about it; I’m generally pretty careless with steeping times and water temperature and I don’t even have a proper teapot (mostly because the lid broke during the move to California ;_;).

I always drink my tea unsweetened and I only add milk in the case of the most egregiously chai-ish of chais. (not really a big fan of milk in general)

Given that so many of my entries seem to be about my morning tea, I felt I should add something here about me and mornings: I fail at mornings. I fail at them a LOT. Therefore I often also fail at proper tea making in the mornings.
