More Insanitea!

Today was our second trip to Insanitea... and today we learned that it is absolutely impossible to only allot one hour of our night to drink tea there.  Sadly, however, that was all the time we had to enjoy a pot of tea each before closing.

Karina chose the Angel's Dream, a mix of maple and wild blackberry that "enhance a blend of teas from sri lanka, taiwan and india to create a heavenly, full flavor black tea."  Her tea was indeed heavenly and delicious with a fantastic burst of flavor, but perhaps too much for my taste to have wanted to finish an entire pot for one.

I, on the other hand, chose the Chai Green Tea which is a green gunpowder tea from Shri Lanka complimented by "warm notes of cinnamon, clove, and cardamom."  The first cup was very light and mildly flavored in comparison to the Angel's Dream, but as the tea remained in the pot to steep longer, the flavor began to come out.  After an hour and multiple cups of the tea from my glorious little white teapot, the flavor was so potent that you would never have guessed it to be the same tea as the first cup.

On the side, I got an iced version of their Granny's Green Apple as per the recommendation in the menu. I had some difficulty tasting the apple, perhaps because of the caramel-typed flavor over-powering it?  I did, however, notice the similarity in lingering after-taste also present in the Bohemian Raspberry but taken down a notch from the floral-patterned-shirt-with-big-glasses-in-a-loft-apartment-in-williamsburg-brooklyn vibe.  This, too, tasted better after allowing to sit a while and in fact grew better with time.
