For god’s sakes, this wasn’t in my cupboard, either! Still at 111 teas, dangnabit. My goal is to be down to 100 or less by July 7th!
I almost feel like there’s no point in rating this, as Teaopia is not keeping this one, and it’s really only a passable chai or mate anyhow. I originally bought it because I discovered that mate helps me come down from my ADHD meds without a horrible crash. (Amphetamines = good, horrible zombie-like crash at the end of the day = bad.) But I have since stopped taking my meds because they are not currently covered by insurance, and I’m not in school anyway. (The terrific irony of my meds is that I cannot get through school without them, but I cannot make enough money to afford them while in school! So now I am simply trying to learn to cope without them again, period…and if that doesn’t work, maybe I will have enough savings for them when I go back to school.)
In the meantime, if I need a mate, I have discovered Chocolate Rocket from David’s, and that’s a more than acceptable substitute!
It’s definitely got a roasted flavour to it, and something to it which is almost dusty…or gritty…hard to explain.
But with milk and DAVIDsTEA’s vanilla agave, it’s more than saved, and quite tasty! Two cups of this one this afternoon before I need to go to work, and another successful de-cupboard (in real life, if not on Steepster).
You can actually see the bottom of the tea shelf now; there’s enough space freed up that you could put something like a tin of peanut butter or something in there.
