So I was all ready to try the lipton chocolate milk tea, but when I went to the grocery store where I’d seen it it wasn’t there! (well, I went down to that one store / where I’d seen that tea just days before / but the man there said the tea, it wouldn’t breeeeeeeeeew /) OMG did I hallucinate it? Did I miss my ONE AND ONLY chance to have chocolate milk tea? I am going to be so sad if I can’t find it now. I will cry bitter tears of sadness.

Anyway, to console myself, I decided to get the milk tea version of TeaO in order to amuse myself with thoughts of golden drops and tea gnomes/fairies (I recently had it pointed out to me that tea gnomes would be much more clever than fairies and would thus be more likely to be assigned to golden drop thievery) It’s all right, maybe marginally less sweet than the other milk teas I’ve had, but the “tea” flavor was also kind of less present making it taste a lot like sweet milk.

Oh well, at least it was calorie off! (Japan makes your English terrible, troofact)

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.
