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.

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. <3

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.
