I can’t believe such a Chai head like myself has not yet had a cup of full leaf Chai at Starbucks…until tonight!I had some time between my mad dash to the bookstore (got the LAST textbook on the shelf for my class!) and my lecture. I was going to get my usual Earl Grey, but since I already had some Earl Grey Supreme today, I wanted to try something different. I remember a few people raving about this Chai so I thought it would be the best alternative.

And – YES! YUM! Again, I’m amazed that you can get something so unusual at a shop that’s on every corner. This chai is so delightfully licorice-y!!! Nicely spiced, a nice tea flavor, but the licorice really makes it stand out to me. It’s very different than any of the chais I have at home, and I really enjoyed it. It is going to have the honor of my Earl Grey Alternative when I’m at school, because ooof – that Awake tea does not do anything special.

I love to cook, bake, read, paint, knit, do needlework, and garden. I need my coffee, but I LOVE my tea. I work at an Art School, and attend a large public university doing post-bac work (my BA is in English). I’m interested in the liminal spaces between art and craft, the academic and the practical, the individual and community, and the old and the new. I’m currently exploring these ideas through the disciplines of education, literature, history, and psychology.

I enjoy writing tasting notes, but have decided not to numerically rate teas as of 9/14/10. For an explanation, see my looooong tasting note about Mountain Malt from the Simple Leaf.

My favorites:
Chinese black teas
A good “milk and sugar” English style black
Earl Grey (classic, and in all variations!)
Vanilla teas (classic, and in all variations!)
Jasmine, Rose, Violet and other froofy, flowery teas!
An Occasional Oolong
Flavored Rooibos
Herbal Tisanes
