Forgive me Steepster for I have sinned… I have had many delicious teas in the past week, but I have also been too exhausted or busy to log them. I will catch up now.

I am a trainer for a pharmaceutical company. We had a new hire class start on Monday and the first week (Of a 3 week class) is always the most exhausting for me. I talk nonstop for almost 6 hours each day. It’s awful. LOL.

I have a TON of samples to get through, and they helped me get through the week. It was fun to pick two samples to take with me each day. Gave me something to look forward to as I slugged through the material with my new hires.

Anyway…THIS TEA. Loved it. I was pleasantly surprised that I loved it since it has peppercorns in it. I tend not to like those in my tea. But they never overwhelmed the minty-chocolaty goodness of this cup, so I was able to ignore they existed. Haha.

As far as mint-chocolate teas go, I think “Mint Chocolate Chip” by Whispering Pines is my favorite so far!

Thank you to cavocorax for the sample!

Mint Chocolate Chip is amazing. I hoard it. Dunno why, because I can just order more anytime, but I do. I’ve even taken some in to the local DAVIDs tea to show one of the staffers what ‘real’ tea was like. Ha! :)

Aw I will have to try that one next time. I didn’t think to order any with my WP order, you make it sound great!

I’m glad you enjoyed the tea, but I can see why you might say that Whispering Pines does it better than DAVIDs. (It’s true!)

Hope you get through your training without too much madness!

Bio

I just started drinking loose tea this year…and by “drinking” I mean, “completely obsessed” with no hope or want of redemption.

One experience with some rooibos and an infuser to show me just how easy it was, and that was all she wrote.

The only tea I ever had before this year was bagged Earl Grey, that one bad experience was enough to put me off tea for life. Turns out, after some trial and error, I discovered I just don’t like bergamot.

All other tea is fair game. I am enjoying expanding my horizons, and I would love to do a swap if anyone is willing to give a newbie a shot! Check out my cupboard and let me know if you are interested in anything!

Tea Ratings:
100-90 – DRINK ALL THE TEA!!! Always in my cupboard. I would cry if discontinued.
80-89 – Very good tea. I probably stock this year round in small quantities.
70-79 – Good tea, but not a “WOW” tea
60-69 – I can appreciate that this is good tea…just not a tea I enjoy
59 or below – No thank you.

As far as life outside of tea goes…I am a fangirl at heart.

I love BBC Sherlock and all things Johnlock.

I also love Doctor Who. 3, 9 & 10 are my favorites…I have high hopes for 12. My favorite companions are River Song, Donna Noble and Mickey the Idiot.

I am an adult fan of Lego, as is my husband bgrinham. We collect Classic Space, Classic Star Wars, Harry Potter, Trains, and the Modular Buildings.

Feel free to say hello! I look forward to meeting people who share in my obsessions! Tea or otherwise!
