Tea of the Day: Night of the Iguana Chai by The Whistling Kettle
Description: A mysterious blend of chocolate and masala spices enhances this velvety black tea
Smells like Mexican chocolate; dark chocolate and spice but with more spice and a pleasantly bitter richness behind it
Liquor is a dark red brown in the cup
Once steeped, smells like chocolate and cinnamon.
Chocolaty, cinnamony, has other spices (possibly pepper) that make it leave a significant warmth behind, particularly in the back of the throat. Slightly bitter, use less tea than you think you need
Tea Rating: 3.5/5
Today, a poem of sorts. Maybe more a lyrical affirmation of my life. Imagine, if you will, a drum beat. Strong and steady like a heartbeat, but relentless like the steady pounding of the surf:
Today, I feel fierce.
