OMG!!!! I get it!!! For the first time EVER, I taste the “bakery/pastery” or in this case pancake in a tea. I feel like I just had an major tea tasting breakthrough. This tastes like pancakes and maple syrup. (Maybe this is a good time to mention that I don’t really like pancakes).
Anyway, the maple part of this is really good, subtle not in your face. Nice. Pancakes aside, I still like this. It’s one of the better maple teas I’ve had.

Thank you JackieT for sending me this sample.

Sorry. If it makes you feel any better, this isn’t currently for sale on their site anyway. No worries about breaking the budget.

lol. what was it another steepster friend said a few days ago? ‘a website enabling budget breaking behaviour’. jeez. sad, but GLAD it isn’t available!

LOL that’s funny, I like it. Five months ago I was happily living my life with about 10 DavidsTea/Teavana teas in my cupboard, didn’t know much about the tea world, and then I stumbled into this site. IT CHANGED EVERYTHING. Enabling – that’s what this site is.

Bio

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.
