Editing to note a sipdown. This is no. 5 of 2017 (no. 286 total). This page is broken and I can’t post a new note. The note below was from approximately two years before this added paragraph. I have tons of little bits of tea hanging around that I really need to sip down, so tonight I made this straight in the Breville (no milk, no sugar) and tossed it over some ice so I could finally say goodbye to it. Oddly, it was a decent spiced cold tea.
Wow, I’ve had this a long time. I wrote the original note on it when I first joined Steepster about 6 years ago!
If I had my druthers, I’d drink chai a lot more than I do, but because of the milk content it’s more caloric than other things (and frankly, if I’m going to drink calories, I’d rather do it with wine than anything else most of the time. ;-)) so I don’t drink it that often. Also, weather is a big factor for me with chai. When it’s hot, I’m not often in the mood because chai is heavier than other teas. The result is I feel like every time I look in my stash, I find an astonishing amount of chai.
Today, we have rain. Lots and lots of rain. I haven’t been outside yet so I don’t know whether that translates into lower temperatures outside. It just looks like a cold day, which put me in the mood for chai. I used the Teafrog chocolate and cream for the extra tea this time.
It hasn’t changed in six years. It’s a pleasant mild chocolate chai. The spices give flavor but not heat. I still don’t taste cheesecake, so knocking off some points for that. But I’ll enjoy sipping it down.
