Hi Steepster! It’s been a while :D Hope I haven’t been forgotten. D:
Finally trying this one for the first time.

I love the body of this tea. It’s so thick, and creamy and feels sort of silky on your tongue. I don’t really get chocolately notes so much, but more of cream, a touch of pepper, and a hint of floral at the finish.

Looking forward to drinking this many more times to fully ‘unlock’ the flavor so to speak. So far so good! :)

Bio

Hello! I’m a 24 year old Canadian, currently working at Starbucks while I figure out what I want to do with myself in life, haha.

Like most everyone else, I grew up with teabags, and then discovered the grass really WAS greener on the other side with loose leaf. Nowadays I drink nearly exclusively loose, but will drink a bagged tea if I don’t care what I’m having.

My favorite kind of tea is black, and unflavored, although I do enjoy an occasional dessert black. I like whites second best. I’ve recently been dipping my toes into honeybush tisanes, greens and oolongs.

My favorite vendors are Butiki Teas and Verdant Teas. Both have fantastic teas, above and beyond customer service (especially Butiki), and fair prices for their very high quality teas. I can’t recommend them enough.

Purely for tasting notes references, I don’t use any additives for my teas. Older tasting notes for blacks was with milk+sugar, and then with just milk. Whites, oolongs, greens and herbals are all drunk straight unless otherwise specified in the notes.
