This is my one tea I hope to have on me if I ever find myself up stranded on a desert island. It’s almost all I have to write about it. I much prefer this to a green Genmaicha, verdant or otherwise, but maybe that’s because I dig black teas more than greens.

The chocolatey rice is out of this world and oh my god, what’s the biggest quantity I can buy because I’m already looking in my 3-oz tin and thinking that I have to hang on to it but I can’t because all I want to drink is this.

And no, I don’t have to add anything else to this note because there’s a lot of them out there, with stories and everything, which most certainly makes this one dull anyway. So there :) Drink this and stop talking. It’s smooth, it’s rice, it’s chocolate and you too will want to take it on a desert island.

(A shitload is the biggest quantity you can get. Ask me for some if you ever run out.)

I would never ask for this! If it’s hard for me to part with, it’d be hard for everyone else too, I’m guessing. Or maybe it’s cause I’m an only child and don’t know how to share.

Yeah, when the zombie apocalypse arrives, you’ll find me in an underground bunker somewhere in the woods near Emminence, Mo, by the Jacks Fork spring fed river (one of my favorite float trip rivers)

You’ll find me somewhere down there, with a survival kit of knives, fishing gear, a few cast iron skillets, a canoe, sleeping bag, tea kettle, & a lifetime supply of hoarded teas, including this one. You’re welcome to join me, people, but please BYOT
LOL

Terri! Bring me! I can make alcohol, for those interested, and I’m a great gardener and forager! I’m building an impressive supply of shengs, too. :p

Terri HarpLady

If I actually had the money, I’d buy a place down around Emminence, & go there as often as I could. I love it there :)

I’m a chef. Surely to god people want a good cook around. Although, I don’t know, Terri can probably survive on those pancakes of hers.

Terri HarpLady

We could all go in on a place down there, as a group vacation home, & ‘just in case’ place. ;)

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.
