So I found myself in the mood for an AUTUMN TEA! I have NONE in my cupboard :( And I can’t afford to buy any for a while. So I chose this out of one of the MANY samples Janelle sent me. I was quite intrigued with the idea of a GREEN OOLONG and CHAI in one? It smelled decadent dry. The cardamom and cinnamon very apparent. Unfortunately steeped, it was quite light. I was afraid to add anything to this because the little flavor it did have would disappear. This definitely would have been a hit with a darker base oolong. I even over leafed to make sure the chai came through:( However this oolong I love. Very delicate and my tastebuds loved it. I usually love to add milk or cream to my chai to get that full flavor. I decided, HECK why not, after I was halfway finished with this I added some milk. As I suspected, all flavor disappeared. Thank you janelle for giving me this to sample.
On another note, since I was feeling in a super duper fall craving mood I made these for dessert tonight:)

However, the sprinkled ones turned into a fail:(
Also after work I stopped by a local cafe that we sell our pastries too and stumbled upon a scoop of heaven in a cup! Oatmeal chocolate chip ice cream! I love oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. Eating this made me instantly want Della Terra’s Oatmeal Raisin cookie tea!

I also got a scoop of Pistachio Almond, making me also crave Butiki’s Pistachio Ice Cream Tea. HAHA can’t you tell I am having major withdrawals. Oh LAWRD!

Anyways, I will have to take another stab at this tea eventually.

Chai is a nice fall tea, and easy to make if you have any straight blacks! http://www.food.com/recipe/indian-masala-chai-190932

Hi! I am a 20 year-old from Salinas, California. I attended school in Monterey and played softball for my JC. I recently moved to San Luis Obispo, CA where I got a job as a full time baker and I LOVE my job! I have always loved to bake and cook since I was young and actually started my own cupcake business in highschool to help pay for my senior year as well as pay my way through college. Once I moved my cupcake business was put on hold, but I still love what I’m doing now. I love to work with children and hope to transfer soon to a college for child development or family psychology. I would also love to go to culinary school! I have a lot of things I want to do and am determined to do them! I am a huge tea enthusiast. I love to read about tea. Learn about tea. Make tea. Drink tea. Taste new flavors.

I am also very big on reading and always enjoy a good read. If you ever have any reccomendation never be afraid send it my way!

I am really excited to be a part of this tea community and can’t wait to trade tips, teas, recipes and treats!
