Sometimes, life hands you irony. My husband and I don't drink alcohol. It's not a morality judgment. We just sniff it and think, "Ew! People drink this?!" The irony of the situation is that he and I work together at a liquor store. I have a bad habit of saying things that could be misinterpreted, and it's even worse if people know where I work. I pretty much cannot talk about drinks without people assuming the wrong thing. Of course, I say that, and now I'm going to talk about tea.:P

Every now and then, I manage to give up caffeine for awhile. I did this again a few months ago, swearing off my beloved Dr Pepper. Then, last month, I discovered chai masala. I have been shamelessly hooked ever since. So tasty!



I know I promised new wallpapers last week, but I ended up having a bunch of other, weirder things to handle, so I will have to try again. New stuff soon! Promise! In the mean time, fans of 28 Days Later can entertain themselves with a fan movie my husband and his brother made. It combines paintball and zombies, and really... who doesn't love that?

Is the chai masala bagged tea you'd buy an a grocery store, or something you get at a local coffee shop? (Just wondering if I can find some to try it!)

I have been mostly caffeine-free for a year and a half now (it helps keep me more stable, emotionally)! Gave up pop way long ago, but then also gave up coffee (except for decaf). But, I can't seem to give up my tea, though. ::clings to it::

You can buy your own chai, or you can get it at a local coffee shop. The coffee shops tend to call it "chai latte" because it has milk. I've been drinking International Foods chai, which probably isn't the best brand, but I'm new to chai, and it makes me happy.

I gave up caffeine for the same reason! I discovered I'm not nearly as anxious when I'm not drinking caffeine. Chai is made with assam black tea, and it's equal to about half a cup of coffee, so I only have it a few times a week.

I always get chai with soy at my favorite coffee shop!

It is also why I don't drink alcohol as often, either--it just messes too badly with me and causes havoc with my sleeping patterns (which are always dicey!).

Chai with soy is very healthy! Chai is full of all sorts of helpful compounds, which is why I don't feel bad about drinking it.

The brand I use is General Foods International. Thought I should correct that.

Right! I knew you meant the General Foods International things, no worries!
