I didn’t think I would like a chocolate tea, but the hubs was keen to try it so we ordered a sample. (He has a bit of a sweet tooth…and by “a bit” I mean he practically mainlines sugar for most of the day)

Anywho… I’m glad he talked me into this one. The first steep is a little rough for me…the black tea overpowers the chocolate and almost comes off a bit burnt. BUT! The second and third steeps? WHOA NELLY! AMAZING! The second and third steeps have a nice balance of vanilla and chocolate with just a mild hint of the black tea thrown in for good measure. I would give this a higher rating if we could skip that first steep!

Give this one a shot…just brace yourself for that first steep. It’s a doozy!

This caffeine-free gem is one of my go-to blends when I need a refresher mid-day.

That’s a lot of hyphens…

I love this herbal tea hot or iced. It brews bold either way. I always get a strong hint of cherry, even though it’s not listed in the ingredients. I also get strawberry, hibiscus and apple. A few reviewers on other sites claim it tastes like medicine…I have had a few teas that give that impression, but this is not one of them.

Welcome to Steepster! I’m a johnlock fangirl as well so you are more than welcome here. :D We’ve even got a steepster fanfic discussion going on in the forums if you dare to go there.

If you have any questions about anything let me know! There’s tons of great people here.


Thanks Cavocorax! I would definitely dare to go there! I have not ventured into the forums yet, but I will keep an eye out for that thread when I do!

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!
