I rarely purchase grocery store teas, but I was craving chai, had heard Numi was a good brand, and the box does say “full leaf tea”. After getting it home I just cut open a bag and put it in the teapot. That’s when I discovered that it doesn’t look like full leaf at all; it appears to be ground and twiggy. Well, I decided to try it anyway, just in case it was better than it looks. Cinnamon overwhelmed all the other spices and the tea was just weak. Not much more to say; I just really didn’t like it and was upset over what I feel was the false claim that it’s a loose leaf tea.

Tea has always been my favorite beverage, even though I did get addicted to the buzz from the coffee high. This became more true as good quality coffee became easier to come by, while tea for the most part was regulated to the crushed bag varieties. So, even though I preferred the flavor of tea, I would consume a couple of cups of coffe every morning and reserved tea for the weekends. Fortunately, I found loose leaf teas at Whole Foods and discovered the taste and freshness of whole leaf teas. My favorites tend to be a Sencha and Assam.
