Yay, we have a winner. I really like this one. It reminds be a bit of Checkmate from Davids – but this is a better version of that.
This is a very nice chocolate vanilla tea.
I don’t have a lot to say about it. It’s not complex, it doesn’t try to be a lot of things. This is just a really nice chocolate dessert tea. I like it.
Thank you VariaTEA for this sample.

VariaTEA

OMGsrsly actually sent this my way so she is the source of this tasty tea :). I am glad there is finally one you liked.

Abby Noelle

ohh I want to try this!!

OMGsrsly

I got it from Cavo, who I think maybe got it from Sil. Haha. The tea has travelled well! I quite like this one too.

Dexter

LOL it’s like a traveling tea box, except it’s just a single tea. This sample ends here- I’m drinking the last of it right now. Thanks to everyone who passed it along.

VariaTEA

Haha. It has just slowly been dwindled so all of steepster could give it a try.

OMGsrsly

I got an almost full tin, and shared it around. :)

VariaTEA

Well thank you for sharing :). I have one cup worth left and the rest I sent to Dex. I wanted to make sure that I liked the tea and that is why I enjoyed it as opposed to just being excited about it

Stephanie

This one is good stuff! :)

Yvonne

Wish I could’ve tried this!

Cavocorax

Hahah. I love how this got around. I think Sil and I shared an order from the Steape Shoppe and then passed things along in various swaps. :P I didn’t care for this one as much, but I’m happy you guys did! For me, the cinnamon swirl bread was THE tea from them, and nothing could compare to it.

MissB

So funny! OMGsrsly gave me some too, so now I just have to try it. Such a lineage, this tea!

OMGsrsly

Oh, awesome! I hadn’t kept track of what I was sending people for a while there. :)

MissB

You keep track? Jeepers. I should do that. It’s out of control now, I’m so surprised I’ve yet to give someone duplicates. Or, maybe I have?

OMGsrsly

I had been keeping track, then I got caught up in the swapping craze. :) Spreadsheets, MissB. Spreadsheets.

Tea Sipper

Ah! Better checkmate! That must be really good!

C.S. Lewis – “You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me.”

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.
