drank Decaffeinated Chai by Twinings
735 tasting notes

Head fuzzies this morning. Hoping it’s not the onset of a migraine, although it feels that way. Advil and tea is how I choose to stave this off, whatever it is (the result of too much craft beer and Spanish wine this weekend, probably).

As far as bagged options go, Twinings is hard to argue with. This chai is well-balanced, tastes exactly how you’d want and expect it to, is low-maintenance, and takes milk and honey well. Twinings’s decaf black tea base is also done very well with this blend; it doesn’t have that horrible flat chemical aftertaste that so many other grocery store decaf options do. I’m sure it’s the wonderful, warming spices that are helping hide it, but whatever gets the job done is fine.

Flavors: Cardamom, Cinnamon, Cloves, Ginger, Nutmeg, Spices

I hope the tea and Advil get the job done. Feel better!

I haven’t tried the decaf version, but you can almost always find the regular version in somebody’s stash at work. It’s absolutely acceptable!

Thanks… I decided to just take a half day off work and go back to bed. I woke up feeling much better today. Although I may make more of this decaf chai anyway (it really hit the spot yesterday!).
