304 tasting notes

This has become my everyday tea:)
Smooth flavors, no after bite.
I did do something today that will probably send shivers down some tea lovers spines…I added a hazelnut creamer to my cup. The result was really good. I love the taste of hazelnut and sometimes wish I could have that flavor profile with this tea. The use of the creamer solved that problem. Much creamier than 2% milk. I think I actually like this better than Adiago’s Hazelnut. My hubby will be glad about that since he thinks I have too much anyway…LOL…can you ever have too much tea?? I think not:)

I do that w/ chai frequently- and w/ other teas very rarely. (Not hazelnut though). Why do you think it’d send shivers down some tea lovers’ spines? Because creamer is “supposed” to be used for coffee and coffee is some sin? lol Just wondering.

SoccerMom

I use creamer with Chai’s too. I have not tried hazelnut though.

SoccerMom, chocolate caramel and white chocolate creamers in Mayan Chocolate Chai… ooohhh…

I haven’t tried Mayan Chocolate Chai and it maybe awhile as Numi’s is my next chocolate tea order!

I add all sorts of crazy things to my tea…maybe because I started out drinking coffee….

I was supposing that a tea “purist” would not add a creamer to a tea. (Just like "Purists in my pedometer site do not believe in converting activities to steps)I am not a tea purist or a pedometer purist, so I thought…go for it! and it was good:) random thought….You know how Simon on American Idol tells the contestants that they are interesting?! LOL….I often wonder what he would say to me?

STAY CALM AND DRINK TEA

Steam rises from a cup of tea

and we are wrapped in history,

inhaling ancient times and lands,

comfort of ages in our hands.
