Confession time. I am a t-sac junkie. Here’s how it goes: I buy a pack of t-sacs with the intention to only use them at work, while traveling, and when I’m on the run in the morning, but then I just end up using them for every single flipping cup of tea I make because I am supremely lazy. It’s gotten so bad that I ended up finishing a pack of 100 filters within the span of a couple weeks. Time to stop putting a strain on the environment and my wallet and just use a darn infuser basket! I will conquer this laziness. I just bough two new perfect mugs from DT last week, so now I have no excuses :)
Which leads me to my beloved Mayan Chocolate Chai. This was my first time making it with an infuser rather than a t-sac, and holy heck is it ever spicy! I can’t believe the difference sans t-sac. The pepper is the first flavour I taste and it remains dominant for the whole sip. Yum! Spicy, spicy goodness. I can’t believe how much flavour I was losing before. All the more reason to permanently kick my t-sac habit.
