I grabbed this bag earlier in the week to take to work since I polished off the Tiger Assam I was keeping there, thinking it was a good way to get it used up. It’s a tasty tea, not as “hot” spicy as I had anticipated when I bought it – I was expecting something like chili powder-spicy. It’s more chai-spice spicy, but it’s not a chai. Probably not the best choice to start my day – I think it is aggravating my acid reflux :( So I may have to just give this one away. I promised a friend I would put together some samples for her, so I may include the rest of the bag with that.

When I was a very young child, I swallowed an ice cube whole. It got stuck in my throat, and my mother had me drink hot tea to melt it away. That started a love affair with tea that has never abated.

I dabbled with Celestial Seasonings and other grocery store teabags for awhile, in my young and foolish days. But a few years ago, I received a tea of the month subscription from Adagio, and I found that there was a whole other world of tea out there that I had never experienced.

I love drinking tea, and I love the personal ceremony of making a glass or pot of tea for myself. It’s like a meditation.
