I’m having a cup of this as it is getting really cold outside here (although I’m not complaining, no snow yet :D which is rare) and I wanted something cozy and warming and also with a caffeine kick. This fits the bill in all aspects. I only steeped this for less than a minute today because it gets soooo strong haha, and added honey to the travel mug as well. The result is a strong, gingery, spiced chai that I am definitely feeling today! I am happy I made this, now hopefully the caffeine doesn’t take me out! I feel a migraine coming on from the crazy wind today so hopefully the caffeine helps ward that off haha.

In other news, I went swimming in a pool for literally the first time in years (last was like in junior high or high school haha). There is a pool super close to my house so I am going to try to get in the habit of swimming at least twice a week for the winter season, since I can’t go running outside when it’s so cold (read: will not go running outside when it’s cold lol). Last night was great and definitely a work out as well as being relaxing, so I hope I can keep it up, since my running has been nonexistant for a month, since I returned from Scotland lol. Hooray for trying to be active!

What a coincidence! I’m brewing up some Acquired Taste Tea right now too. And way to be tackling the swimming pool! I too would love to do that again someday, as I haven’t since junior high either.

kinsmen sports center. best pool time ever.

keychange

Hmmm, I’ve never looked into acquired taste! going to change that. And love love how swimming is both a workout and relaxing!

mrs.stenhouse12

@Fjellrev – what one are you having? I haven’t looked at your notes yet haha, and go for the swimming! Such a good workout!

mrs.stenhouse12

@Sil – I actually went to Confederation Leisure Center haha Kinsmen is a great facility but I am not hardcore enough to swim there I don’t think lol :(

mrs.stenhouse12

@keychange – Acquired Taste is good stuff! Local to Edmonton but I’m pretty sure they ship :) I think you can email for free samples too! And swimming is great for that, low impact but my heart was still racing afterward haha so I know it was a good workout!

Sil

i love kinsmen because it’s got a 50M pool instead of the usual 25m pool. haha forces you to keep going. add the dive tank and the hot tub pool thing (unless things have changed since i was there last) = saunas and i am a fan.

mrs.stenhouse12

Haha I doubt I could even swim 50m now I had trouble enough with 25! Hot tub is nice though :) Confed has one of those too and a sauna and dive tank, but I only went in the hot tub, I find saunas make me dizzy lol too hot for me!

Fjellrev

I had Winter Dream Sencha. Although it has spices, it can sometimes taste like cola bottle candies haha.

I’m too uncomfortable to go swimming right now, but yeah, Kinsmen is supposed to be the shit.

Hm. Methinks this is the same chai as the Spicy Chai, except that this has vanilla in it. Interesting. I definitely like this better – smoother – however it’s still too bitter as it cooled.
