I awoke with a nasty sore throat this morning.
Which is kinda bumming me out.
After trying to ignore it all morning, and now its lunch time and it is being joined by a drippy nose, I have succumbed to the fact that something must be done.
TeaEqualsBliss sent me a few samples of different kinds of Chai, and this is one of them.
I am hoping this will help with my cold/allergy thing.
I do not smell any spices, just black tea and something almost honey-like.
There is a small amount of spice of the tongue, but very mild.
Not bad, felt nice on my sore throat.
Might try another Chai, since I was hoping for a kick of spice:)

Eeek, I hate sore throats. Hope yours is better soon!

It is much better today, thank you:)
I do not know why it feels more miserable when you are sick in the summer.

My hubby was just remarking on that yesterday. He was sneezing his head off (allergies, as he’s all right today) and said that it seems even worse to do that in the summer.

I didn’t steep this at a very high temp OR for very long but the color was very dark — almost like a coffee. It doesn’t taste or smell like a chai OR a rooibos. It has a very perfumey taste. No spices at all that I can taste. And the red tea isn’t really like a red I’ve had before. So basically it didn’t seem like a rooibos or a chai… just very perfumey. I wonder what they put in it?

After a long hiatus from this…I decided to have a cup…actually, it got lost in the shuffle because of the odd-ball size of the tin it’s in…it was just so-so…but did the job…

Backlogging. Very strong for a cheap bagged black tea. Hints of Peach and Hints of Ginger. Nice!

A little bland but a good one to end the day with.
