drank Chai Guarana by DAVIDsTEA
116 tasting notes

It was actually really funny… no sooner did I make this tea then I had someone drop by my office for an impromptu meeting; not only that but I got the comment “You’re the only person I know that drinks tea that smells like one of those nice candles!” I’m choosing to take this comment as a complement to the tea despite the fact that it was a comparison between a wax product and a drink…

I really like the cinnamon and ginger in this, they mix well with the rest of the flavors and leave such a pleasant tingle which warms me up after being out in the weather. I also found that I enjoyed the dry finish today as well, it just tied everything off quite nicely. I still keep expecting a slightly richer mouth feel though, that’s the one detail that always seems to leave me hanging with this infusion… I wonder how that would change if I made this as “classic” chai and steeped it in milk over the stove. Something to try one of these days.

Ever since I discovered the wide world that is loose-leaf teas, I haven’t been able to go back. It doesn’t seem to matter what type it is or if it’s “straight” or “flavored” tea is my thing. It’s actually quite funny as I’m surrounded by coffee lovers who just can’t quite grasp why, to me, tea is better than coffee. :D (which considering it’s less-than a 5 minute walk to each of 2 separate Tim Horton’s, a Starbucks AND a Second Cup… that’s saying something!)

On the whole I tend to prefer my tea strong and “au natural” with no sweeteners, milk or other additions, but like most everyone there’s always exceptions to the rule… just not many of them.

Aside from tea I love reading (especially if there is a fireplace or campfire involved), camping/hiking, horseback riding and Healing Touch (similar to Reiki). Oh and computers and board games (euro style, is there anything else? ;)) and… and… chuckles OK so I have a large variety of interests.
