I spend a lot of time with this tea. I think it has to be a personal favorite and is certainly something a reach for in the morning. Last night I had Chocolate Chai and I didn’t bother to wash out the tetsubin, so the chocolate chip had a faint hint of chai flavor. Not a bad thing, but it shows how absolutely lazy I am.
Most people who are teaophiles tend to go for straight teas like oolongs, blacks or greens without flavor. I have to admit that my tea drinking started with flavored teas and I’ve never let go. I enjoy single leaves immensely, but I just love some of the flavored ones.
