Vanilla Chai


Today’s Tea: Vanilla Chai by Bigelow

Description: Chai is a delightful blend of tea and exotic spices. It is often brewed with milk, which gives chai a wonderful, creamy characteristic. In our vanilla chai, we have added the flavor of vanilla, offering you a whole new dimension in chai

Smells sweet and sharp, even from a distance. Seems like it would be a good acompanyment to those very lightly sweet butter cookies that come in tins around the holidays

Smells much the same when steeped, though the flavor is not as strong as the smell. Leaves behind a pleseant spicy aftertaste. The flavor is brought out a bit better once the tea is sweetened


Today, a couple poems. One old, one new


life moves,
too fast to see
but the days drag
and I’m alone
hurtling towards
something unknown and unseen
a black bird
winging its way
across stormy skies…


breeze brushes by,

leaves fall.

rain mists down,

creating ripples on the water

no sign of people,

except one small thing:

the beating of my own heart.

“My hour for tea is half-past five, and my buttered toast waits for nobody.”
Wilkie Collins, The Woman in White
