So I have never been a huge fan of Chai tea, since I just don’t like the scatchy feel of the spices. This being the case, I still felt compelled to buy this since I wanted to try all 3 of the Chicago teas. I mean I live there so I might as well know what it tastes like right?

I had this first a few weeks ago and it was fine. There was the typical scratch of the spices and with this one there is a quite a bit of taste of clover to it. I liked it though for the most part but couldn’t help but think I would like it more it I had some sort of cold or other illness.

Today I got to prove myself right. I have felt under the weather for about 2 days now, probably due to lack of sleep. I decided this morning when I got home that I would brew up a cup or two and see how it made me feel. I have to say that I feel freaking amazing now. My throat feels better and my nose has cleared up, so I guess I got what I wanted.

Bio

Well, to start, my name is Matt. I got into loose leaf tea my sophomore year in college. I was drinking some lipton tea in my room when I started thinking to myself that there has to be something more then just bagged tea. So I decided to do a web search and found out about loose leaf (you would think that this would have been an obvious thing but surprisingly it was not). I stumbled across a local tea cafe called Argo tea and decided to try it out. Long story short, I fell in love. From this one store I have started to branch out to all different types of tea from several different stores.

My favorit tea is very hard to choose since I like pretty much everything there is that I have tried. I have recently started getting into pu’erh teas, which is getting to be interesting. I am always looking for new a greater tastes when it comes to tea and am trying to better express my experiences with tea.

Aside from tea I am an actor in the Chicago area. I do mostly theatre and various film projects through out the Midwest. I recently started doing Voiceover work, which I have to say is very fun and easy going.

My number ratings are more random then anything. Since I have no idea half the time when I move the slider on the happy face meter what number will be showing up.
