Mmmmm, this one seems better this year than last. I feel more of the heat. It was a nice mix of chocolate and chili in the two cups I had today. I woke up very congested, and with a lot of pressure as a result, and a headache. This helped breathe some life back into me and got me to a point where I was able to go into work for a few hours in the evening instead of being at home all day.

I had almost opted for some Ginger Pu Erh for the sinus clearing and medicinal benefits of the ginger. But no, I wanted sinus clearing AND comfort. So I had the Chocolate Chili Chai…and I am SOOO glad I picked it up yesterday with more Alpine Punch (one can never have too much Alpine Punch).

So, today, even though I am in Canada, and we had our Thanksgiving last month, I was very thankful for this tea today!

I generally like a lot of tea. I do find I have a preference for flavored over unflavoured, but I do love a good straight tea as well.

Likes are too hard, since there are a lot. Dislikes are easier, so here they are…

Hibiscus. Blech. I can tolerate a little, depending on the brew, like Berry Good from Davids and Ruby Pie from Butiki…but in general, it’s too tart and too strong for me.

Licorice. Anything that remotely resembles licorice is out too, so that includes fennel and anise. Yuck, yuck, yuck.

Florals. I’m cool with petals in the tea to make them look pretty (except rose), and I’m cool with teas like oolongs having a floral note, but strong florals can give me migraines. Rose and jasmine are the biggest offenders. This is one where it can vary on the blend, as I can handle Teavivre’s Peach Jasmine Dragon Pearl tea because there is very little jasmine actually detectable in it.

Rooibos is hit or miss. I can do some, but not others. I handle green better than red, and honeybush better than rooibos.

My ratings don’t have a particular scale or method, and may on occasion contradict themselves, but I’m honestly not fussed about that. Sometimes I don’t even rate at all.

Um, I have an extensive wishlist. It is both a list of things I want to get again, and things I want to try. If you are sending me something, and you want to know which is which, I’ll tell you via PM.

Yes, I do trades…usually on request though. See something you want to try in my cupboard? Just shoot me a message and I’ll see what I can do!

Uh, guess that’s it.
