And I had such high expectations for this tea today!
I chose it specifically because it’s cold out. I put it in a fancy new mug that my dad gave to me that looks like something a Hobbit would use. I splashed in a little whole milk and stirred in my usual lemon honey.
But when I sipped it, I was entirely uninspired.
Usually this is my favourite chai. But today it’s like faintly spiced water.
SO SAD!
No body at all. It’s got a weight less than water.
Hardly any smell.
Almost zero spiciness…
Well, poop.
I’ll drink it, but I won’t love it this time.

I’m surprised, and sorry. I had this at — oh, hang on, I had two teabags in a large mug at Starbucks, that’s why I liked it so much. Never mind.

Such a pricey tea should not require two bags to make it drinkable and chai-licious.

Bio

I’m a work-at-home mum. Seeing as how I work in the basement at the computer and am too lazy to brew myself a cup of coffee each day, tea has become my drink-of-choice.
