Today, this is perfect. A sample from Dexter3657 (thank you!) from a while back that got misplaced somehow. I found it a while back and put it in my bag to take to work making this the most “travelled” tea for sure because I forgot it was in my bag. Found it! Perfect timing too, it is exactly what I was in the mood for.

2 “perfect” spoons, 16 oz boiling water for 3 minutes. Added sugar and Belgian chocolate creamer — yes, it exists — and it is the perfect tea to have by the fireplace. It is cold in Toronto now and while I don’t want to turn the heat on yet (I have rules about when the furnace gets turned on for the first time) I didn’t see anything wrong with a little fire.

Fall has arrived. Although we’re few good weeks away from Christmas, this chocolate minty tea you can enjoy now since it seems the pumpkin teas are failing us for the most part.

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.
