Ah, it seems I’ve drank this up without logging and removing from my cupboard. Tsk. It was quite nice seeing the chamomile flowers bobbing away and the honey sachet was a cute addition to the Monstrositea selection for the month, but I rarely drink straight chamomile, I prefer to go for the sleepy tea blends, for fancy reasons.

It’s got the taste of rooibos without the annoying rooibosness. If that makes any sense at all. It doesn’t really, does it?

Finally brought my tin full of Monstrositea samples to my lovely new workplace so I might finally start getting to the bottom of more of them, hooray for me! And hooray for my lovely new workplace! A month and a half and I’m still in honeymoon stage.

Am I just in a generous mood today, or what? This is my second cup of this Monstrositea sample and it’s taking me back to those wonderful adventures I had with my first ever Butiki order and the beautiful straight blacks I got from them. It’s just a lovely, lovely cup.

This is a really lovely solid base tea. Sometimes it’s nice to take time with a plain black—I don’t do it much these days. As mentioned on the Tippity note from yesterday, haha.

CHAIDAY CHAIDAY CHAIDAY! I’ve been looking forward to a ridiculous day like this for a while. Cold and under blanket, no plans, back to back movies, and a big delicious pot of masala on my lap, brewed up on the stove. And a wee bit hungover.

Dustin

Jealous of your ridiculous and relaxing day! :)

I drank a delicious pot of this today. I can’t imagine preparing it any other way than on the stove. I never want to run out of it.

Yesssssss. A blustery day full of rain and my new old corningware teapot bubbling full of chai on the stove. Well played.

WELCOME BACK INTO MY LIFE, BABY BOO!

Perfect timing, too. A chilly cold day today after farewelling my houseful of guests earlier. Curled up on the couch with some catch-up TV episodes and a teapot full of stove-boiled milky chai.

Happy place.

drank Masala Chai by Monstrositea

Welp, I don’t know if I’m biased because I know this tea came directly from a chai wallah in the heart of India, but I’m pretty sure this is the most deliciously blended chai I’ve ever tried.

Perfect for today’s rainy day. Another from the Monstrositea April box, by the way. I had to wait to get some decent milk from the organic guys at the farmers’ market today and it just so happened that the weather today begged for some chai to be drunk. Apparent temp 4°C at 2pm! Brrrr. I’m rugged up on the couch with a book… wishing I had more chai.

(Almost ruined everything by leaving the kitchen for 2mins, which was the 2mins the pot decided to boil over. Don’t know how I saved it but I did! PHEW.)

I thought I’d made a mistake buying this because I kept adding it to the wrong teas. But I got that sorted tonight with a short 2min steep with some Sencha. Perfect and fresh.

Bedtime tea tonight with a healthy splash of vanilla soy. Nutty and woodsy and creamy and good, yes.

This one was a pleasant surprise from the March Monstrositea box. I’m not drawn to rooibos but in the effort of trying all my sample teas I tried this plain, then with a drop of milk and sugar as suggested in the tea notes. Surprisingly good! Fine, rooibos. I guess you’re not half bad. Sweet and nutty.
