The weather is evil and I am so glad I don’t have to go to work today!

And now I’m sipping this warming tea. The spices here are very unassuming and what you mostly get upfront is the biting bitterness of the base. The bitter stays with you for a while, but it’s kind of pleasant and adds to this tea’s complexity. I am guessing that it would taste great with honey and milk but I rarely add anything to my teas, so I’m having it plain.

I think this one probably really does need milk and some sweetening to do it justice as H&S bills it as something to make chai from. That said, I drank it as a chai and found it only very mildly spiced so it wasn’t my favorite chai, even though I got a lot more tea taste from it than some chais.

This is one that we like at work but made with milk and sugar. Haven’t tried it plain.

ME & TEA

I started drinking tea when I was a teenager, my dad used to make tea a million times a day as it was (and still is!) good for his health. So he would make it for the entire family. Usually it was Lipton with a teaspoon of sugar per cup and a slice of lemon. I was fond of it made this way then a lot.

Then I would have occasional loose leaf teas, I slowly got into green tea… I would mostly stick to bagged tea though. It was just convenient.

Only recently, in the middle of 2013, did I start getting seriously into all kinds of loose leaf tea.

JUST ME
Apart from tea, I love reading, board-gaming with my husband, learning foreign languages (currently Spanish and Portuguese) and listening to lots and lots of music!

And if we just stick to food-related stuff I am also a great aficionado of good craft beer and dark chocolate :)
