Today’s cup is an Elaichi, Indian black tea from Tetley given to me by a coworker.
Citrus and spice have been paired together in a lot of teas. It’s because of this that this tea was so comfortable to try.
Ginger has always been an interesting spice for me. Usually I find it pretty hit or miss, so I was a little nervous when trying this tea. Unnecessarily so.
This morning I’ve got another tea from Mighty Leaf. A Rainforest Mate (mah-tay).
Fig. Figgy pudding. Fig. I do love figs. They’re underutilized here in The States I think. This Organic Cinnamon Fig Black Tea from Art of Tea is worth a look-see if you happen to have a taste for the figgy goodness.
As the weather gets colder, I’ve noticed myself gravitating to more spiced teas that usual. This lightly spiced citrus infused sencha style green tea from 52teas is a palate pleaser.
Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Clove… sounds like the beginnings of a spiced tea… does it not? In this case, it’s the base of “Sweet Oolong Revolution” by the folks at Teavana.
It’s been a week since the end of the World Tea Expo in Las Vegas and I’m still a little heady from the experience. Here’s a recap of my time at the Expo and my takeaway from the event.
This delectably smooth Coconut infused Masala Chai from Yogic Chai coats the mouth with creamy goodness.
Prepare to be dazzled! This spiced Chai is one of the best I’ve had. While easily conjuring up images of Autumn and the American Thanksgiving holiday… I find myself oddly pictured drinking this Chai year ’round!
