88

I had it while watching the 2nd season of Bridgerton. Kate Sharma’s need for chai gave me a craving, so I had this one with more water than last time cutting on the astringency so I can drink the tea without cream or sugar, but amping up the coconut and ginger. Smooth and buttery, but still has the coconut naturally complement the cardamom, ginger, pepper, and sweetening lemongrass. It does work well with cream and sugar, but I might not need it. So far, it looks like I may rate it between 83-87. Either way, I’m digging this particular chai because it’s on the lighter side.

S1 did nothing for me. Caught a glimpse of S2E1 on Sunday then spent the rest of Sunday, my only day off last week, watching all of S2!

Interesting. For me, Bridgerton was something to watch for when I as bored and needed brain popcorn the first time. I liked the ideas and historical features they have for a Uchronia type of show that’s not historically accurate or truly authentic. I appreciate the nods it has, and it makes for something fun to watch with my GF. A lot of the reviews I read were lukewarm of the 2nd Season, but I actually thought it had a stronger plot and characters. Now, the male leads could have been written better in the second season (there was some bright spots that added more to them than just prince charming types), but I was still entertained.

What did you think of season 2?

(Kate is bae-Edwina also deserved better.)

TV as an entertainment form, to borrow your word, is popcorn to me. I don’t watch much so I don’t have a strong opinion or analysis of S2 (or any show for that matter), just know that it drew me in :P

Me:

I am an MSU graduate, and current alternative ed. high school social studies and history teacher. I formerly minored in anthropology, and I love Egyptian and classical history. I love to read, write, draw, paint, sculpt, fence(with a sword), practice calisthenics on rings, lift weights, workout, relax, and drink a cuppa tea…or twenty.

I’ve been drinking green and black teas ever since I was little living in Hawaii. Eastern Asian influence was prominent with my friends and where I grew up, so I’ve been exposed to some tea culture at a young age. I’ve come a long way since I began on steepster and now drink most teas gong fu, especially oolong. Any tea that is naturally creamy, fruity, or sweet without a lot of added flavoring ranks as a must have for me. I also love black teas and dark oolongs with the elusive “cocoa” note. My favorites are lighter Earl Greys, some white teas like What-Cha’s Kenyan offerings, most Hong-Cha’s, darker Darjeelings, almost anything from Nepal, Green Shan Lin Xi’s, and Greener Dong Dings. I’m in the process of trying Alishan’s. I also tend to really enjoy Yunnan Black or Red teas and white teas. I’m pickier with other teas like chamomile, green teas, and Masalas among several.

I used to give ratings, but now I only rate teas that have a strong impression on me. If I really like it, I’ll write it down.

I’ll enjoy a tea almost no matter what, even if the purpose is more medicinal, for it is my truest vice and addiction.
