drank Chocolate Chai by Chico Chai
1455 tasting notes

Now this is a tasty chai! It’s a bit cloudy after brewing, however I find that the case anytime cacao is ground into a powder… think hot chocolate where the solids struggle to mix in properly. It’s sweet, has only a touch of heat, creamy, almost a honey-like quality to it, and then there’s the richness of the chocolate, which is definitely in the background yet still makes itself known in the feel and texture of the tea. Delicious!

Thank you JustJames for sharing this delightfully tiny little tin (about 4 tsp worth) so that I could try it.

Flavors: Chocolate, Cinnamon, Cream

A few years ago, the obsession with tea started. The cupboard got bigger and bigger, more swaps occurred, group buys, secret rendezvous with local teapassionistas… and that’s how you end up with 500+ different kinds of tea in your home. At one time.

Now, it’s purge time. Time to gather what’s needed and let go of the rest. Almost all of the tea was given away, sold, or otherwise shared. A few relics still remain. It’s still a challenge to avoid the chipmunk-like hoarding of The Teas, yet, the lightness of being from having so little compels me more. And so, I’m happy to share (anytime!) and will occasionally desire small amounts of tea for swaps, just to try.

As for the day-to-day stuff, I’m focused almost entirely on Love, (yes, with a capital L), Spirit/Self, transformation, and work (dating columnist and consultant).

No-can-do: lavender, overly floral (French florals, or florals that are creamy rather than, well, floral work well!), sugar, Splenda, all grains.

Love: fruity, dessert, chai, spicy, all types of tea.
