This sample is from OMGsrsly and I think it may be my first assam!

Does it seem like I’m always coupling Greek yogurt with black tea before noon? I should stop doing that because it makes the tea taste deliciously creamy in ways that I am not 100% positive it would otherwise. Not the best for getting an accurate first impression.

This tea is very smooth and full, with a bit of mouth-drying astringency near the end to keep things interesting. It contains some pleasant malty and sweet components. Yep. I’m enjoying this cup. I’ll be exploring this kind of tea in the future.

Edit: The second steep smells lightly fruity.

I looked Assam and Hathikuli up on a map and learned stuff. Should probably do that more often.

Their Oats and Honey is from the same plants, just a different harvest. I think. I prefer the Estate, but YMMV. :) I’m totally willing to deal in Steam teas if you’d like samples of anything!

I’ll probably take you up on that! After searching around I found some of their selection on Facebook. There are some interesting looking teas!

Ohhhh I miss Greek yogurt.
Sometimes I go to the yogurt isle and dream.

OMGsrsly

Yes! They’ll have a website up in a couple weeks, with ingredients and their current menus. The prices are actually less than their “winter menu” on Facebook right now, but I can’t find their current menu…

OMGsrsly

Oh, and they get some of their teas from The Tea Guy. Some they source and blend themselves. :)

I’d have a hard time giving up Greek yogurt; it’s my favourite thing to add oat bran to in the morning. Pain felt.

I’m glad to hear there’s a website coming, with ingredients, although facebook isn’t too bad..

Also, browsing The Tea Guy right now.

I just recently started eating Greek yogurt, and it is definitely addicting. Will see how my tummy reacts to it more regularly. I don’t think I got anything from Steam, but now I’m intrigued.

Bio

I started my Steepster loose leaf adventure back in 2012. I can’t say I’m completely new anymore, but I still view oolong as a magical, extraterrestrial creature that unfurls in water.

Tea Preferences: My absolute favourites are the floral inclined oolong and white teas. I also enjoy unflavoured green and black teas. Puerh is a hit or miss.

Fruit, cedar, anise, and vanilla are good. Black licorice, bergamot, and cheap chocolate are less good. Jasmine, cinnamon, and hibiscus are usually too strong in teas for my taste, but otherwise I like these flavours!

Ratings:

95-100: A Personal Favourite; I’m never without this tea.

90-94: Great! I’ll try to keep a small amount around.

80-89: Enjoyable; I may buy more at some point.

70-79: Nice, but not something I’d drink often. I may have a few problems with it.

50-69: Something about this tea falls flat for me. Still drinkable.

30-49: This isn’t a particularly pleasant cup.

1-29: There’s no way to put it nicely..
