Good morning, Steepster friends. Enjoying a cuppa Della Terra’s Love In A Cup mixed with Candy Cane this morning in the winter wonderland of Middle Of A Cornfield, Ohio. SNOW!!! There is a reason I will never leave this great state: I love weather! Nearly all kinds of weather except HOT weather. Snow has to be my favorite.

With the threat of our first snow, I’m doing what any good Ohioan would do on a windy cold dreary night…having a cuppa by the fire. This mild black tea is doing the trick.

My sis pointed out that I have not been on Steepster in a crazy long amount of time, so I thought I’d log in a note today :)

During my absence, I’ve been enjoying lots of teas in my cabinet. I’ve been trying to avoid any big purchases until I drank most of the tea in my cabinet, so here I am logging a tea I’ve logged before.

I find it interesting how my taste in tea changes throughout the year. For a while, this tea did not appeal to me any longer, but now it taste amazing. A great tea to start my day.

I’ve missed this community and will spend some of my “break” time today reading over your latest notes!!

welcome back!

Thanks for the welcome :) I hope I can keep it up. Not having internet at home keeps me away.

Another great find in my parent’s house. The honey and green tea go so well together. I’ll have to look into other honey greens. Yum!

drank Love In A Cup by Della Terra Teas
205 tasting notes

Chocolate marshmallow awesomeness in a cup. I like this almost as much as Eight Candles. Della Terra’s black base is amazing. Always a good cup and never bitter. For me, the chocolate was the strongest flavor note with marshmallow playing a close second. Beautifully blended! Another win from Della Terra.

I’ve missed Steepster lately. It’s getting harder and harder for me to find time to post and read posts. Hope everyone is well. I plan to spend the next 20 minutes reading tasting notes :)

I liked that one so much I ordered a couple ounces from them! It’s my favorite morning beverage when I’m not in the mood for coffee.

Fantastic! I’m glad you liked it :)

Wanted something dessert-like last night, so I made this amazing chai. Yogic really does it right!! I’m still craving it right now :)

Thought I’d give smokey teas a try again with this one. Still not loving it. My feelings about it have nothing to do with quality of tea, so I’m sure this is a good quality Russian Caravan. It has all to do with taste. It must be an acquired taste or something that just hits some people right. I’ll be passing this on to my dad who loves a good lapsang souchong.

Anna

Do smokey teas taste like bacon or campfire or both?

Em

A little of both. This one had a bit more bacon :)

drank Mandarin White Puerh by Carytown Teas
205 tasting notes

What an interesting and beautiful tea. Cute little mandarin orange peels stuffed with beautiful white puerh tea.

I gave my leaves a rinse before brewing. I steeped it for a minute which I see was a bit long according to the directions here (no internet at home to check). Each sip brought different notes to light. My first sip tasted mostly like a white tea with a hint of orange at the end. By my last sip, I was tasting notes of honey and citrus. I can’t wait to try the brewing instructions suggested above and see what comes from that :)

Thanks, sissy, for sending me this!!

drank Moroccan Mint by Harney & Sons

My sis is the best :) She sent me another tea care package! I have one going out to her tomorrow.

This was the first of the teas for me to try. I like the smooth mint flavor with the green. It soothed my dry raw throat. I could see this being my go to minty tea. Yum!
