This still isn’t my favourite thing to drink unaltered but I do enjoy it as a frothy latte with a generous drizzling of raspberry syrup over the top. It’s a nice comfort drink on rainy night like this. Maybe it will be a fun iced latte when it decides to be hot and sunny again. :/

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

My tea preferences have changed a lot since joining here. I swore I’d never love black teas, and now they make up some of my favourites, both flavoured and unflavoured. I prefer my green and oolong teas buttery and roasted.

A good Silver Needle is my desert island tea.
