The other head of the household is not feeling well tonight so I offered tea. “Whatever you like! Anything! I’m a buffet of tea!” Now of course you hope that when she says “chai” you actually have some. This is the last chai in the house. We must remedy that. Anyway, we killed off another sample. I only had two cups worth so we shared it. She had a giant mug and I had the resteep. Not sure but I might have had the better deal.

I must replace this bag. Chai must be represented in this household, it was the first type of tea we liked simultaneously!

Thanks for this generous sample, Dexter3657

And oh my god, James Gandolfini died today. Total shocker!

Bio

I started drinking loose leaf tea in the spring of 2013 (why do we feel compelled to mark the date of tea drinking somewhat like addicts counting their sobriety days?)

Never been much into tea before. Growing up in Romania, tea was something mom made for you when you were sick. As an adult, my hot beverage of choice has been coffee, both flavoured and regular. I’ve recently stumbled upon Teavana and DAVIDs TEA and quickly got addicted to the latter. Then came steepster and all else followed.

Formerly a mathematician and insurance adjuster, I gave up the corporate world and am now a professional chef. I drink wine and sometimes cheat on it with tea.

I lean heavily towards flavoured black teas. I’ve started to crave the occasional straight oolong and green but so far unflavoured black teas leave me unimpressed.

I’m learning so I drink them all. Am even introducing myself to pu’erh. So far I can do fine with the sheng cause frankly, they don’t taste like pu’erh to me. The shou is another story.

Note*: The virtual cupboard does NOT contain any of the samples I hold since most of them are one-cup quantity.

Note**: My partner, our home improvements, gadgets, mortgage, travel, wine and food have budget priority over tea.
