Love this. Love this. Love this. I got some in a trade with one of my lovely friends…I’ve been on a quest for a good chai for a while, and I was looking for something that, ideally, didn’t have caffeine. This has the most perfect blend of spices—the smoky peppercorns, the cardamom, the cinnamon that doesn’t taste like red hots (I’m lookin’ at you, Cinnamon Rooibos Chai), and the coconut, which takes it over the top and makes it reminiscent of Adagio’s Thai chai (but a caffeine-free version). I can even get two steeps out of this one—the second one I usually drink straight up (the first one is generally with soymilk).

Perfect. Absolutely perfect. Also, nothing clears up a cold like this one. I’m almost out…

I’m a college tea drinker.
I cook feverishly.
I draw.
I make movies.
I knit.
Someday I wish to own chickens.

I love tea because of the complete sensory experience it offers me. Clock time fades away as I lean into my cup, watching the delicate cascades of steam waft up from the brew. Peace. Stillness. Feeling centered. It’s my meditation…

To give you a little background on my tea preferences (which will put my ratings into perspective)…

I love teas that are strong without bitterness and have earthy flavors to them, like rooibos or a really good black tea. (A few favorites in this category: Toffee Almond Supreme, Popped Rooibos, Oh Canada, Nutcracker Sweet.) Vanilla, cinnamon, and nutty are some of my favorite flavor notes. After about a year of warming up to greens, I absolutely love them—from the sweet, nutty, green-tea-ice-cream-like to the bold, grassy earthiness of Gunpowder Temple of Heaven. I also enjoy a nice white every once in a while. Fruity teas aren’t my favorite. I do have a few fruity teas that I love though, like TeaSource’s Green Tea with Pomegranate, Lemon Solstice, and Blueberry Fields.

I drink all of my teas unsweetened; if a tea needs sweetening, I usually don’t like it. A couple of notable exceptions: I sometimes sweeten straight green teas and matcha, and I drink my chai with soymilk (but no other sweetener). I sometimes like my black tea with a little dollop of soymilk.
