I mixed this with the lemon grass. I like this green tea, but I don’t reach for it often enough to buy it again. Great for blends though.

My general opinion of any lapsang souchong is that it’s like drinking bacon rinds. After disliking my small sample, I passed it to a friend, who did the same to another friend, and I’m afraid it ended up fertilizing somebody’s houseplants.

An excellent chai. Perfect with sugar and a little bit of milk. Not as strong as Adagio’s Masala Chai (one of my favorites) but the coconut and lemon flavors make this stand out beautifully. A new favorite I’ll want to keep around.

I’m all out of my Fujian Baroque so I turned to this number instead. I do like it, but it just has none of the cocoa and an added smokiness that isn’t always to my liking. It makes a nice morning tea and it’ll have to do before this next round of shopping.

When I was at the Field Museum of Natural History, I saw a diorama of a tea plantation in Sri Lanka.

Carolyn

That sounds really intereating. Are you referring to the Field Museum in Chicago?

DId you happen to know of any good tea places there? We’re heading to Chicago in two weeks and I’m trying to figure out where the best places to go for tea are.

I decided to finish off my last little bit of Thai Chai in style – by making it traditional-style like I’ve been saying I will for months.

I used this recipe on the website www.chai-wallah.com

In a pot bring to the boil 1 cup milk and one cup water.
Add 2 tsp of the chai/tea mix to the boiling liquid.
Add 2 1/2 to 3 tsp of sugar or sweetener of choice.
Simmer for two minutes and strain through a fine tea strainer.

I used skim milk so technically it isn’t old-school chai – but then lemongrass and coconut aren’t your standard chai ingredients anyway. I used wildflower honey as a sweetener.

It’s a little bit messy and more time-consuming than just brewing it in a cup with hot water but the results were worth it. It tasted like I’d added pure coconut milk to the tea – it was just sweet enough and the coconut flavour in particular was really prominent. It was smooth and creamy-tasting without the slightest hint of astringency. I’m so going to have to try other chais this way.

Oh bleh, I think the milk’s gone sour! DX

…Is it bad that I’m still tempted to drink it because I love this tea so much and even bad milk can’t spoil the taste completely? ;)

put down the cup!

step away from the cup, your tummy will not love you

LENA

Jillian

Yeah, I dumped it out in the end, no worries. What a waste of good tea. :(

My internet was borked and I only got it back now, so this is from early this morning.

I hadn’t had this tea in awhile and decided to remedy that tragic oversight. This is still the best chai I have ever drank. I’m definitely ordering a refill for this puppy when it runs out. :)

Resteeping the leaves from earlier. The tea is too thin for milk, but it’s fine without it in my opinion. I think more of the lemongrass flavour comes out now as opposed to the first steep.

It’s actually been awhile since I last drank this tea – too long. It was a big hit with my friends when I had them over for supper night before last, but I wanted to be all: “Nooo stopping consuming all of my favorite tea, I don’t have much left!” DX

That is so me! My hostess self is always arguing with my greedy self.

Of course you can’t say those things. Instead you have to say things like, “Oh please do have more, I am so glad you like it” and things like that when you really want to say, “Take your hands off the tea and no one gets hurt.” ;)

LENA

make your friends drink the masala chai. the thai chai is sooo my favorite!

Jillian

But I don’t have any masala chai whimpers

Eyes the level in the tin Damn we’re drinking this tea at an alarming rate, I guess it’s the tea’s own fault for being so incredibly delicious. ;)

Tell me about it. Our tin was gone in a flash! It’s on my list to re-order.

Jillian

Yes this one is definitely on the ‘buy more’ list. :D

teafiend

I read this, and checked my tin and I’m much closer to running out than I realized. This tea maybe the weak in link in my chained up wallet.

I sweetened this with a teaspoon of honey and added lots of milk. It’s not a traditional chai but it tasted delicious all the same.

Made a pot of this for my boyfriend and I this morning and it’s as good as ever. This is rapidly becoming my favorite tea and the non-tea-drinking boyfriend-creature likes it too. :D

jennlea

“non-tea-drinking boyfriend-creature” nearly made me spit out my tea! Thanks for the laugh :)

LENA

I ♥ NewYorkCiTEA

I too have a non-tea-drinking-husband-creature. I keep trying to convert.

Hmm, I can really taste the lemon grass today for some reason, maybe because I added less milk than usual.

ZOMG this stuff is awesome! The spices were less intense or bitter than with the traditional chai and the coconut flavour was well developped, the hint of citrus from the lemongrass making it stand out even more. This is on its way to becoming my new favorite tea.
