Of course this was already in the database. Tea addicts will justify just about anything as “drinking tea” if it means getting to count it; which is, of course, exactly what I was doing when I searched for this one to see if I could log it…
We sell this one at work, and I see people in the staff room drinking this one may more over all the other Bolthouse drinks we sell so I got curious, and I bought myself some. Honestly, it was pretty good but I can see why non-serious tea drinkers like it; it’s very sweet with very little actual tea flavour (if any, really) but they can still say they’re being health conscious and drinking tea.
Though all the extra protein and crap in it didn’t hurt since I’ve always had trouble getting enough protein as a vegetarian.
It was just SO milky and creamy, and smooth as silk. But it was like someone brewed up a cup of good Chai, and then added a ‘splash’ of milk to it – only by splash they meant like four fucking cups of milk. It had a nice, light vanilla flavour too – and the spices that were there were nice and light, and kind of gingerbread cookie like.
For what it is, it’s good. Doubt I’ll repurchase though – it’s really expensive!
Today’s word of the day is curiou. A curio is “an object or article valued because it is strange or rare”. I’m not ashamed to say that I just had a minor paradigm shift; I had heard the word before when attached to cabinet (Curio Cabinet), but only in that pairing so up until like five minutes ago my belief was that was simply a different kind or style of cabinet. Yay – learning things!
