Thanks to Michelle, I am having my first taste of something with schizandra berries in it. (Schizandra—sounds like a sneeze.)

Lots of spice in this one, cloves especially. I think I have more or less permanently burned off, from my love of heavy black Assams & breakfast teas, the taste buds that can actually pick up the subtleties of white tea—so if there’s some white tea character in here, I’m not registering it.

This is still OK, and would likely please a chai lover.

Somebody asked me once when I became a tea junkie; I think it dates back to college when I needed caffeine for a 7 a.m. class but chose not to do coffee. My favorite teapot is a medium-sized Brown Betty given to me by my Mema; the painted flowers are chipping off, but the size and feel is perfect. I rejoice when I get a morning to brew a pot of loose tea starting with a kettle; not a bag and a hot pot.
