I’m being indecisive tonight. I can’t decide if I like this. It’s strange, bizarre/weird to me. Must be the cumin, or the thought of the cumin.
I’m also getting that acidic burn sensation on the tongue (like when you drink too much orange juice?). Yet there is something interesting here. Might be too far outside my comfort zone, and it’s just too strange – or so different from what I was expecting that I can’t wrap my head around it.
I’m getting way more spice than I am “bakery”, not getting much nuts at all.
Will have to ponder this one for awhile.

Thanks scribbles really appreciate the sample, you found an interesting one for sure!!!!

I love cumin, but had never even thought of it making an appearance in tea! Sounds very interesting.

It has cumin, coriander, and peppercorns – just needs a little turmeric and we would have curry…..it’s strange to say the least. Cumin is my least favorite of the “curry” spices. I usually back off on the cumin when cooking. Not sure if I don’t like it in this application or if I’m just scared of it. Will have another cup sometime ans see if I feel different about it.

Omg, I looooove cumin! I even put it my burgers. I don’t know about it in tea though…

Dexter

LOL of course you do……….

I like it fine as a ‘curry spice’, but am particularly fond of it as a ‘chile spice’. Still a looooong way from my cuppa. :)

Dexter

Hmmmm chile, maybe I should make chile today with my new knives… there’s a thought. As for the cumin, I’m not telling you what to do, your tea cup if for your enjoyment, but cumin does not belong in mine, and especially not COLD…. this was awful cold IMHO.

I was trying to imagine it, just to keep an open mind and all, but it never really did more for me than ‘unusual’. :)

I needed to update my profile. I joined Steepster 03Mar13. I am just amazed at how much my tastes have changed since then.
When I discovered loose leaf tea about a year and half ago, I didn’t know anything other than my local Davids and Teavana/Teaopia. Stumbling onto Steepster CHANGED EVERYTHING.
Hello, my name is Dex I’m a tea addict.
I’ve been through the “I need to try every single tea out there” phase. I really hope the worst of that has passed. I’ve learned enough to know that I only need to try HALF of all the teas out there. LOL
When I started this journey, I was all about the flavored rooibos and fruity tisanes. Don’t get me wrong there is still room for dessert (chocolate/caramel/nutty) Rooibos teas in my cupboard and I still do enjoy them, BUT I am quickly learning to appreciate the some of the straight teas of the world.
Big bold (but not icky)pu’erh is suddenly my favorite, followed by woody/roasted oolongs. I’m just starting to explore straight black teas, and have found some that I really like.
Generally speaking I’m not into greens at all, only like the occasional green oolong, and white teas are just too mild for my tastes (unless they are fruit flavored). I still enjoy really good fruit tisanes, but am now cold steeping them.
I don’t like floral/herbal blends, and mint anything is not on my preferred list.
I am still exploring new teas, adapting to my changing tastes, understanding more every day how little I really know about tea. Ultimately I would love to find approximately 50 teas that I just “can’t live without” and always have them in my cupboard. That might not be practical, but that what I’m searching for. It’s going to be a fun journey.

All in all, I love this site. I’ve met some wonderful people, and have gotten to try some amazing teas because of them. It really restores your faith in humanity when you get a note saying “oh by the way I sent you some tea”. Wonderful, generous, people here.
