I nearly just steeped my Laoshan Black and Cacao in the vinegar I’d had in the kettle for cleaning. Eek. Thank goodness I caught that just in time.

I’m on my resteep of 2 parts Laoshan Black and 1 part Cacao. It really just accentuated the chocolate notes in Laoshan Black, which was delightful. I’m getting dangerously low on Cacao though, I really wish my HI order would ship already. I’m trying to be patient, but it’s not working out so well.

Wow. Sounds like a sweet combo! I need to clean my kettle out, thanks for the reminder heh

Courtney

The hard water out here drives me nutty, I’m constantly vinegar-ing haha!

Kittenna

Oh man. That would have been disgusting!

Courtney

Haha thank goodness I caught it. Phew.

Cavocorax

Wow. That’s an interesting combo! And I hope your order ships soon. They need to get quicker at that…

Sil

They need to stop doing 4509834509438584739 things and get a few down right first. All of these delays is part of why I haven’t bothered to place an order yet…

Cavocorax

Yeah, that is pretty annoying. :|
I reviewed a tea after a purchase and now I have a 20% off coupon, which expires in a month. That’s a very sneaky way to entice me. But I don’t want to wait 2 weeks for it to show up when I’m in the same city!

Profile

Bio

Lover of tea, animals, the ocean (http://eastcoastbest.tumblr.com/), science, travel, and all things summer.

That’s my mug! I may have a slight love of Star Trek.

I love black teas. I pretty well always drink my tea straight. I’m also fond of herbals, but they rarely make my permanent collection. I prefer my tea hot, but occasionally I’ll cold brew.

Oolongs I enjoy, but I’m not generally in the mood for them. I only truly enjoy subtly fruity flavoured greens. Whites have to be pretty amazing (see Butiki’s White Rhino).

Pu’erhs I’m working on at a snail’s pace, but so far I’m not loving them. Rooibos/honeybush have to be well hidden for me to enjoy them. Mates and are not for me at all.

Likes:
Coconut, creaminess, yogurt, toffee, cacao (true chocolate flavour), rhubarb.

Dislikes:
Any smokiness, bergamot, flowers (rose, jasmine, chamomile), hibiscus is hit and miss.
