Kickstarter is such an awesome thing. Today I got the Dram Apothecary set in the mail :)
The little vials they came in didn’t break which is good because I thought that one of them might break being sent in just a bock basically. Since my brother is home I asked if he wanted to try the chai this came with and he said yes.
Cleaned out the french press from this morning an started the water. I’ll admit, loose chai is hard to enjoy since I have tried so many variations. In my opinion, out of all the chai there are (in my opinion) two good ones for the twenty that are tried. Upon brewing this I noticed it was a bit light colored, but I realized it was the ratio of tea and other material used in the blend. The black tea, which I am happy to announce, is quality leaf. The brew is warming and provides this interesting sensation of calmness. I’m actually surprised at how balanced this blend is. The background notes of cherry sweetness, not the tart, are alive within the black tea and not just put there for name/appearance. Now that I have tried this… I’m quite interested in their Early Gray tea, which I believe there are more ‘eh’ ones than good ones.
Since I lived in Colorado for a few years, if I ever go back to visit people I will have to drop by their store because I’m liking the vibe the company puts off.
