A Tea Post

If you know me, you know I love tea. A lot. It might not surprise you then, to learn that I come from a family of tea drinkers as well. When I came home from school, my entire tea shelf had to be combined with the teas at home, and everything just got stuffed in as well as possible. But it was hard to find things, and I had no idea what was in there. So on Saturday, I decided to clear out the whole thing, and see what we had.

This is what came out of the cabinet 

This is what went back in, after a fair bit of consolidation/poking about and trying to figure out what was in the unlabelled tins...
Unfortunately, we are currently OUT of my favourite kind of tea. How do I do without it, you ask? Honestly? I have no idea.

Oh how I miss you!! (Picture found here

But in poking around in the depths of shelf, I found this:

My friend Rachel brought this back from Switzerland after Christmas break, and then gave it to me. Yes, it really did take me months and months to try it... Shame on me, I know.

Of course, being from Switzerland, the instructions were not in English. But between guessing and asking a friend what a few key words were, my brother and I were able to make a pot!

 It was pretty good, but I think I'll need to use more tea or less water next time. Also, I prefer my chai with honey, but somehow we were completely out, so we had to make do with sugar. I think I'll withhold further judgement until I can try it with honey.

Till then, Tazo remains my favourite.
