Restocked one of my favorite masala chai blends this week, just in time for a string of rainy days. ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ ๐ŸŒฆ๏ธ Firepot was one of the first legit chais that I was introduced to, full of fresh spices and meant to be made on the stove top with milk and water. I've tried plenty of high-quality chai blends since but this one has remained a fav of mine. ๐ŸŒฟ
I've been experimenting with milk alternatives since dairy hasn't been sitting well with me recently but have yet to find one that doesn't alter the taste of chai too much. I really just love milk. ๐Ÿ˜ What's your go-to dairy alternative? #teajournal #firepotchai

Very into iced matcha lattes lately. ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ Enjoying the last few blooms on our tree...most of the petals are covering the ground like some sort of pretty, spring snow. ๐ŸŒธ๐ŸŒฟ #teajournal #matcha
A recent teatime read ๐ŸŒฟ I've slowly been reading through @ReadEighty's first issue, soaking up the information and enjoying the breathtaking photos and art included in each article. The magazine covers everything from in-depth tea basics and history to interviews with tea professionals and aficionados from around the world. I've been quite impressed by this first issue and can't wait for the next one!

Check out my stories for a peek inside!๐Ÿ‘†๐Ÿผ#teajournal #readeighty
I'm totally captivated by the cherry tree that's currently in full bloom in our yard and reminiscing on this recipe I posted on the blog about this time last year. Ginger Matcha Latte ๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒธ As green and fresh as spring, with none of the overwhelming pollen. ๐Ÿ˜ Linked above under 'Recipes'! #teajournal #matcha #teajournaltuesday
Third infusion of @FieldtoCup's Formosa Bai Hao ๐ŸŒฟ With sweet, floral notes, it's a delicious example of one of Taiwan's most well-known teas.

This oolong was included in @FieldtoCup's March Adventurer tea box along with four other teas and I've really enjoyed the variety and quality of each box so far.

Iced matcha latte ๐ŸŒฟbecause, while it was 20ยฐ here last week, it'll be 78ยฐ today! Spring is rolling in, daffodils are blooming, and (depending on the day) it's warm enough to have the windows open. ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ Is it a hot or iced tea sort of day where you're at? #teajournal #matcha
