Since I have a midterm tomorrow, I am s̶t̶u̶d̶y̶i̶n̶g̶ ̶v̶e̶r̶y̶ ̶h̶a̶r̶d̶ taking a longer than necessary break on Steepster. I was pretty sleepy before I started (funny how that always happens when you have to do something you don’t want to), so I wanted a straight black tea with a bit of muscle to get the job done. This is the first plain black I’ve tried since bags, so I’m no expert, but it’s simple and good. At first sip it just tastes like a basic black, nothing special, but on the second part of the sip I can detect some nuances in the flavor, which becomes even more apparent as it cools down. By the end of the cup I realize it’s tastier than I originally thought. Overall it’s a good basic black tea, and pretty inexpensive compared to most of their other offerings. I think I’d like to try a few other varieties before deciding whether to restock this. And also, I’m still sleepy. Hmm…maybe a little nap will make me more productive?

You’re reasoning sounds like mine when it comes to studying! A nap rarely makes me more productive, but I still insist in trying. Good luck on your midterm!

Thanks! So true; the nap didn’t help at all but I still convinced myself to indulge in one!

Good luck on the midterm, I am often quite good at procrastinating in the face of an essay or big test!

I recently discovered loose leaf after a long and uninspiring relationship with teabags. I’ve been in love ever since (sorry bags, I just don’t feel that spark anymore).

Food is a passion for me and my love of scents and flavors has translated into an excitement for trying new teas. I’m trying to expand my palate with all different types, and currently my favorites are oolongs and greens.
