Not sure if this is the one I won in my advent calendar today, but I expect so.

Less than thrilled with the prospect of a chai. It’s not really one of those things that I buy. Or want. Ever. Well, occasionally I’ll dabble a bit, but that’s honestly as far as it goes. I’m just not keen on spicy tea and could happily live without it. I’ve written previously about the traumatic introduction to chai I had as a child via hippie-ish scout leaders who didn’t want to serve boring old unhealthy hot chocolate to children age 8-12 or so who would really much much rather have had a cup of hot chocolate. I know I would. I shan’t repeat the whole thing again, but I can probably find the post if anybody wants me to.

So this one is… oh well. At least it was two satchets rather than a loose sample, so one for me and one for Husband and it’s gone and dealt with.

This one is actually fairly inoffensive. It’s fairly cinnamon-y but seems otherwise pretty mild on the spices which is totally fine with me given as how I mentioned I don’t really want spices in my teacup.

Still, though. I drink it because it’s there, but I can’t say it’s giving me much in the way of pleasure.

Polar opposite experience from the one I had when I stopped into Starbucks on my way home to try that honey almond hot chocolate they have. That one blew my mind. Easily the best hot chocolate I’ve ever had. I’ll be having more of that, let me tell you! Are these Christmas specials the same for where you are, or do they adjust the selection to suit the locals? I know we don’t have all the same choices that you get in the regular menu. (There is only one Starbucks in this city, and it’s the second biggest town in the country, so we’re fairly new territory for the chain here. I expect this is probably the reason for the somewhat smaller selection. It’s only been open about a year, I think.)

Honey Almond Hot Chocolate? Sounds amazing, I wonder if the Starbucks here has it. :D

yyz

I haven’t looked yet.

Ours had it on a sign outside. Christmas ones. There’s also a toffee nut latte which by the way was also very good and a gingerbread latte which I’m not trying because ginger, bleh. :)

Give me my bergamot and keep the chai.

OMGsrsly

The gingerbread is more soft spices and molasses. But if you don’t like ginger, I’m sure you’d pick it out. :)

Yeah, I’m not keen on ginger. I can tolerate it in baked goods or in cooking, but I don’t really want it in my drinks. I generally don’t really wish to drink spices. :)
