I did not go into Georgetown specifically to go into ching ching CHA. I went into Georgetown (which is a royal PITA to get to from anywhere else in DC) to go to the Spice & Tea Exchange to buy fancy schmancy cooking spices for a friend’s birthday present. Only, the Exchange was closed early. And ching ching CHA was right there…

So end result is I spent my friend Tim’s birthday present money on tea and a $25 infuser (which I did not realize was $25 until after I had walked out of the store and was mostly out of Georgetown and actually pulled out the damn receipt).
I may be a bad, bad friend.

But anyway, on to the tea, which is made of fabulous. Cinnamon, definitely. Rose, yup. But other than that, it is all tea. This is absolutely lovely, and smooth, and delicious which just a bit of zing from the cinnamon. Fantastic tea, and it was a fantastic price, too, at $5 for 2 oz.

(As an aside, I had a very cracked out dream last night about the Spice & Tea Exchange, where I finally walked in and it was a cafe and in the back room they were selling animal monstrosities, like two headed-pigs. And there was a dungeon in the basement and sinister people trying to kill me. I don’t even know…)

Something tells me I have to take a trip into Georgetown in the near future, though it is such a hassle from the burbs!

Bio

I’m a tea-aholic. I’ve always loved tea. It is soothing and warm and comforting. I always had it when we went out to eat as a child so my first association is with rich and delicious food.

As an adult, I’m learning to enjoy tea on its own merits, and bask in its subtleties and varieties. The ritual of making a cup of tea is instantly relaxing.

I prefer oolong and white teas, followed by greens, and then blacks. For the most part I do not like flavored or blended teas, and I never add sugar or cream to tea from the actual tea plant.

I’m slowly learning to appreciate rooibos blends, which I drink for its anti-inflammatory properties.
