Once upon a time, I had a rat. He was awesome. He has absolutely nothing to do with this tea, but I thought I'd mention him. I picked chestnut because I've never had it before, lemon grass because it's mondo happy pants, and pumpkin spice because I just re-watched Spice World and it tickled me. And the cardamom? Um... I don't know. Can I blame aliens? Yes? Okay, cool... it was totally aliens.
