This is the first hotel I’ve ever been to that serves Numi with its catering but gives you Lipton when you eat in their restaraunt. Makes no sense to me.

Yup, Numi tea notes to come.

Lounging in the hotel room, about to get ready for the day. So glad that this is the last day ofthe conference!! Have had quite a few cups of this tea this morning…and I do believe this one’sthe last of my stash. Here’s hoping the last few sessions aren’t mind-numbing.

I miss my Chloe. I’m having to make tea by the cup and it’s just not fun.

Ah, done with the conference for the day. Back in the room in my pjs (yes, I realize it’s a bit early, but I’m okay with that). Having my last bag of this. Very sad to see this go, but that just means there’s more room in my cupboard!!!

drank Darjeeling Tea by Twinings

On my way to a conference. Can you sense the excitement? O.o

We stopped at Cracker Barrel for lunch, and I asked for hot tea. The waitress brought out two bags of this with a mug of hot water, and a little pot of more water. I steeped for about 3 minutes, and was surprised by how much I enjoyed it. Couldn’t really make notes about what I tasted, but I’ve tucked the second bag in my purse to have later!!

I first tried this at a Cracker Barrel too!

5 minutes this time. A little spicier, but I like it much better this way! I wish I had some milk to put in it and see how that would be, but it’s great as is.

Trying this again, but added an extra teaspoon of tea in (3 tsps for 16 oz). I can definitely smell pineapple this time around…

Still not getting much pineapple coming through in the taste, though this pot is much better than my previous attempts. Still getting that Genmaicha taste, but with more leaf it’s not as overpowering. Bumping the rating on this…it’s much, much better with that additional tsp of leaf!!

drank Mom's Blend by 52teas

Really, Steepsterites? Really? I’m the first one to log this? How is that possible?

Anyway, amandajo sent me some of this a while back; I pulled it out this morning. Whilst I’m not a mother (a fact that my mother whines about at least once a week), I’m still partaking. If your friends refer to you as their Mama Jaime, it kinda counts, right?

The first thing I taste is the lavender. It’s smooth, definitely the most prominent taste, but not overpowering (lavender usually slaps me in the face, so this is a very nice change). After lavender, it’s vanilla, and then the white tea. As it cools, more of the strawberry comes out, though it’s more of a come-and-go thing.

The more I drink it, the more I like it. I’m really not a huge fan of lavender, so finding something I actually enjoy that contains it is novel, yet nice. I should have known though: if anyone can make a lavender blend that I like, it would be Frank.

Profile

Bio

My love of tea started in 2001, whilst in an internship in London, England. I shared an office with a lovely man who would make me a cup of tea every morning without asking me if I even wanted it. I drink my tea neat now, because I’ve yet to find the sugar/milk combination that lives up to Pablo’s.

I drink any and all kinds of tea, and love trying new brands/varieties/flavors.
