So i used to work at a coffee shop. I did not care for this at all with my first cup. Then i tried it iced. caramel-y and bitter. It was so refreshing and the bitterness really helped with my loss of appetite in summer. but it’s cold out now, and I make this into a latte. Half cup of chicory dickory dock (I know it’s heavy, and you really don’t need a lot. I use half a tea spoon for half a mug) steeped 2 minutes, (the instruction says 4~5, but 2 min = less bitterness), half cup of steamed milk, a few squirts of honey. My friend who tried it agreed it’s like mocha! very chocolatey and coffee-y. bitter, sweet, and caramel!! mm i just added some cocoa powder in my last few sips and i’m a happy happy lady! :)
Did you know people used to use chicory root as a birth control? :)

Bio

I love tea. I love DAVIDsTEA. I also love my cat Major Tom, who loves chai tea.
I like mismatched mugs and feeling inspired to drink certain tea at certain time of day.
I like looking at tea leaves but want them out of my mouth.
I also like drinking. and Tea drinking and (other things) drinking also mix sometimes. If you’re friends with me I will probably give you so much tea!
That’s probably it for now. Oh I also like stories.
Really really like stories, about teas, objects, cats, stars.
