drank Vanilla Chai by Bigelow
27 tasting notes

I had this one yesterday. It was graciously given to me as I was waiting outside of a venue in the freezing cold. Even though I wouldn’t normally go for something like this… well as you can see I was in a desperate situation.

It was alright I suppose. It wasn’t undrinkable, but what seemed to be artificial vanilla was the most noticeable of the flavors and it was cloyingly sweet. The spices were weak. It made me think I was drinking a slightly spiced vanilla drink instead of a chai.

The only good thing about it was how hot it was, but I suppose a cupful of hot water would’ve done the job just as well.

I’m just glad I didn’t have to buy it…

Bio

I’m not one for introductions…

I’m a studying musicologist, cellist, and sometimes I’ll sketch a thing or two.

Tea and I first met in the form of a stale Chamomile bag on a cold and dreary night. It was a humble (not to mention tasteless) beginning, but it was a beginning nonetheless.

My affinity for the Victorian tradition of tea lead me to Twinnings which then led me to Teavana, which led me to perhaps my most favorite (living) musician. Yes… well, it’s not really a logical story…

Anyways, I’m here now, realizing that there’s way more to tea than I’d ever knew, and more than I’ll probably ever know.

Meet you all at 4 o’Clock…

WF120-A, in the windmills of my mind…
