We live in one of the coldest places on earth now: the Sunset district. Ok, I may be exaggerating a little, but it is pretty foggy and chilly out here for a good part of the year. I was so depressed to leave sunny Potrero Hill, but alas. They just want too much money for that sun.
But, I think we’re settling in ok. I’m the weird kind of gal that would much rather put on a sweatshirt and make a nice hot cup of tea than sweat to death on some beach. So I suppose this is really the perfect place for me.
I drank a lot of tea before, but now I’m drinking probably 5 or 6 cups a day, especially when I’m powering away at my desk. For everyday cups of tea, I usually stick to the basic Earl Grey, but when it’s really cold and I need a little treat, I like to throw something a little more exotic in the mix for a change.
I recently stumbled upon Zhena teas, and let me tell you what, people. The coconut chai flavor is out of this freaking world. The coconut provides a smooth, tropical flair and the chai warms you up from the inside out. You would swear you were sipping tea in some remote Indian street market or something. Absolutely hands down the best chai I have ever tasted, and I mean that. It becomes a luscious treat with milk and honey but is also still spectacular on its own.
And sometimes with a fruity or sweet tea, the fruit or sweet flavor is just too much. Not so with this tea. There is just the slightest hint of coconut, but enough that you can still taste it. Amazing.
If you’re a tea lover like me and you also like the spicy warmth of a good cup of chai, you gotta get your hands on this stuff! So good!
