drank Casablanca Spice by Teavana
382 tasting notes

So, I pulled out the plain white tea sample from Golden Moon this afternoon, but then suddenly it randomly got really cold (in California! I want my money back, dammit) and I decided I needed something with a little more oomph. So I used up the last (!) of my Casablanca Spice.

Now, this is no longer available from Teavana, so this is the last I’ll ever have of it! It used to be the highest pinnacle of Chai for me, even though I guess it’s not officially a chai. Maybe that’s why I liked it so much, it wasn’t constrained by the standard chai base. However, after the super tasty kashmiri chai from Golden Moon, it just doesn’t seem as awesome…That makes me a little sad, but on the other hand, it’s good because I won’t feel as bad about not having more of it. It’s still tasty! But now that I have found something that gets closer to what I consider to be the pinnacle of all chai (the Borders chai that exists in my head but probably doesn’t taste anything like what I think it does) it just doesn’t seem that big of a deal.

Of course, that could also be because it’s like, four years old. Hey, when I ration, I RATION. (Also, two of those years were spent in Japan and I didn’t take my tea collection with me :P)

I’m a Pole who grew up in Texas, is currently a graduate student in California studying Japan. How’s THAT for random?

Being Polish, my family has always drunk a lot of tea, and I am no different. I may drink more tea than water. On the other hand, I can’t say that I’m very particular about it; I’m generally pretty careless with steeping times and water temperature and I don’t even have a proper teapot (mostly because the lid broke during the move to California ;_;).

I always drink my tea unsweetened and I only add milk in the case of the most egregiously chai-ish of chais. (not really a big fan of milk in general)

Given that so many of my entries seem to be about my morning tea, I felt I should add something here about me and mornings: I fail at mornings. I fail at them a LOT. Therefore I often also fail at proper tea making in the mornings.
