I went to DT and they had a sample out. Tried it, then bought two tins of my very own. This is sinfully good. I definitely taste the chocolate and marshmallow. I get hints of graham cracker sometimes but not enough to really think about it. Mostly it just makes me think of a hot chocolate with marshmallows already added in.

Flavors: Chocolate, Marshmallow

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 7 min, 0 sec 8 OZ / 236 ML

oh and I finally made my tea bento order. Mostly black teas as winter is coming.

How strong is the chai taste? I know it’s marketed as a chai, but I’m not a big fan of chai with overpowering cinnamon, so I’m hoping that it’s mostly a chocolate tea with a dash of spice for flavor.

Helena

tastes like Cadbury’s marshmallow hot chocolate.

So I was a bit busy this morning and didn’t set any kind of timer or stopwatch… so I steeped this approximately a min give or take a few seconds. It didn’t seem to suffer though as far as I can tell. I was a bit impatient to drink my tea so I burned my tongue again… (happens when I’m too eager to get my tea fix). So I can’t pin down exactly what I’m tasting but it tastes yummy! I swear I’ll do a better job tomorrow on my day off. It was from a Verdant Tea tea of the month sample ages ago. I will clear up my tea stash :D

I’m having this cold as I have lost the hot water tank thingy in the Cafeteria as it’s closed while construction is going on. I miss having instant hot water when I want it though. Easier and quicker just to make cold tea for now :D If I could use my own kettle it would be great but the building has banned personal kettles/heaters… (grumble, grumble)

Flavors: Creamy, Lemon

Boooo on kettle bans!! how rude :P

Helena

I know. I might go find the kitchenettes on the other floors to see which has the best station for brewing. There is bound to be a kettle on one of the floors I can use.

It’s supposed to go up to 30C (90F) today… It’s fall dang you silly weather!! So I needed a rooibos blend. I just got the email about DT’s new chais. The S’mores looks tempting… Ah well this is a very good cinnamon tea and I’m enjoying the AC in the building where I work before my shift ends and I have to cycle home.

I think I only have about one more cup of this left. (after this one) That’s going to hurt a bit as I really do enjoy this one. It’s such a comfy tea, makes you think about reading books in front of fires.

Come here you lovable pumpkin butternut squash soup you. I need your caffeine and yumminess on the double. I went for Ingress Fall First Saturday event today so I got off my midnight shift, went home showered, then took a very long bus ride to the other end of town. I didn’t get home until 6:30 pm. Slept for an hour or two then went back to work. It was a crazy day but I wouldn’t change a moment of it. I won a nice powerbank, another pin (trekker FS pin) and had some awesome maple chili wings and pineapple curry wings. (THEY WERE AWEWOMSE!!) so yeah I think I may have overdone it today.

Bring on the MAPLE!!! the maple leafs don’t hurt either! I’m happy I have such a fun tea to drink while I wait for my shift to end. I have no idea what other tea I’ll drink today as I wander around for the Ingress Fall First Saturday event. I just know that I’ll have a lot of fun.

A great tea, full of pumpkins and thoughts of fall. A very comforting cup of tea.

I sorely need this if only to stop being angry at a coworker for being a petty child. I came in early to do my job but he didn’t like something in my shift log from the previous day so he wouldn’t let me take over. He was being such a jerk. So I told him if he wanted to stay for extra time even though he could leave that was up to him (30+minutes). So I went for a walk in the building and patiently waited. It’s not my fault he didn’t get all the facts before starting his shift yesterday and then screwed up. Thank goodness for tea.

Sometimes while sipping a low-key, simple tea I like to imagine that I’m drinking a magical cup of {insert whatever magic need here}. Usually my tea is a magical anxiety soother.

I learned this, no joke, from a psychology professor who recommended using bottled water as a cure-all for test anxiety! In my opinion, the tastier the tea, the more magic it has in it.

Helena

Tea is definitely magic. It can cure all that ails you.
