(That is actually the name of a cafe we used to frequent way
Anyways, I am a coffee drinker, through and through. Never really been a tea drinker.
Somehow, I've made this association in my head that tea is usually for when: (a) my stomach is not feeling too well and needs something to soothe it, to soothe me; or (b) I'm hung over that even the thought of coffee just makes me want to hurl heehee; or (c) I'm having a nice cake/pastry for dessert and can't have a nice cup of coffee with it coz it's too late in the day and I need to get up early the day after and coffee will just keep me up all night; or (d) I'm in an Asian restaurant, be it Chinese, Japanese, or Korean.
Although mind you, we have a stash of 2 or 3 kinds of teas at home (see above reasons). But like I said, not really a tea drinker, but if there is a tea out there to convince me to become otherwise, this is probably it.
|Chocolate Chili Chai from David's Tea|
A lady at the temporary office I was working at a few weeks ago started bringing this tea for her to drink throughout the day. The first time she made this tea, I swear, the smell just permeated the whole kitchen. And it just smelled soooo divine!!! How can it not?!? Chocolate!
Well, it definitely woke up the chocoholic in me!:)
I really had no choice but to ask her and get me some of that delightful concoction.
It's definitely not inexpensive, but oh, the quality of the tea!
Interestingly enough, there is a nice tea shop near my work, not David's Tea but still, which I've probably ventured into only a couple of times, and somehow never really piqued my curiosity enough for me to try their tea.
After having this tea though, I will never look at tea the same way ever again.
I may just pay that tea place near work a visit again one of these days. Or better yet, actually go to David's Tea.
Maybe... I heard they have this other tea that has coconut and lavender... so, just maybe(?)...
