270 tasting notes

Dry leaf, this smells of chocolate, or crumbled up cookies, maybe some vanilla. Brewed, it is sweet enough that no sugar is needed but if you add sweetener it could be out of this world delicious. I only added a bit of caramel creamer.

I could do without the sludge tracks it leaves in my steeper and cup but it’s what you get what with the sprinkles and chocolate chips in there. When it comes to chocolate teas, I like Love Tea #7 better but not by much.

If you haven’t tried this yet, try at least a 24 g bag for those nights you want to cozy up with some cocoa or something.

Bio

Im a fairly recent follower of the loose leaf tea drinking cult. March 2013 to be exact. 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 prefer flavoured teas. It’s probably the newbie in me. I just don’t get cravings for a straight black tea. If I end up having one, I drop in a slice of lemon and artificial rum flavouring (ugh, what moron admits to this?). A black tea fixed this way reminds me of skating at an outdoor rink as a young one, with a thermos full of tea made just as I described..

Im learning so I drink them all. everything! 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. Home improvements, mortgage, travel, wine and food have budget priority over tea.
