100

why does a cup of this always seem to finish itself so quickly??

is it laced with something nefarious?

i steep it for 6-8 minutes (never taking the teabags out), add 2 and 1/2 tsps of brown sugar & a fair amount of Silk to give the dark maple colored brew a creamy-looking appearance of chai (sufficiently opaque and a perfect shade of # B48064 (hexadecimal color code). i referred to some charts on google but they weren’t yielding the correct shade of brown so alas, i was forced to open up Photoshop and toggle the color coordinates to my own liking.

sometimes words fall short (at least for this philistine), so it’s always good to have a hex color chart on hand, or a good neutral color palette when elaborating on different shades of beige:

personally, i like mine at Camelback SW 6122 though sometimes it goes to whole wheat, other times baguette.

Bio

love tea in every form- from bagged to loose leaf..commercial to niche. i am intrigued by it all & want to learn as much as i can through my 5 senses (tho with tea i’ll presumably be using 3)..am a very sensorial person. love music, perfume, poetry, graphic design, India, Malaysia, Moorish architecture, oh….and tea!

apparently i’m really out of the loop here since i appear to be among the only ones who have not yet tried Golden Moon, Butiki, 52teas, Mandala, Teavivre or Della Terra. i mean REALLY. i need to start lifting this rock up over my head y’all. from the looks of things, i’ve been reenacting Groundhog’s Day every hour on the hour with my uniformed choices. i seek to be anointed!

also, don’t take my numbers too literally; they can’t possibly speak to the actual quality of the tea, much less to the constancy of my own perceptions! what i may feel to be an 88 one day, could very well be a 91 the next, or even 100, depending on my taste buds, blood sugar levels, neuronal firings or planetary alignment ;)
