I’ve been drinking this tea down. It is a good afternoon tea and has replaced my Earl Grey love for now, but I don’t think I would get it again. I gave a cup to my brother and he liked it. I think the verdict on this one is once it is gone, it is gone.

Hot and tasty. Dad is having issues with doors in our house.

I got this tea today when I was out shopping with mom. I wanted something different and the only chai tea I have ever had was the Oregon Trail mix. I made what they call the “quick version” and added sugar and milk.

It tastes good to me right now. I could have made it a bit stronger. I think it will taste better if I actually heated up water in the kettle instead of in the microwave. And possibly brewed it longer. I have a whole box to try, so I will experiment. Not rating it right now. I’ll figure out how I like it first, then rate.

Nothing tastes better at the end of the day than a reliable cup of tea with milk.

Hot with no milk.

Drinking this after getting back from being with my sick boyfriend. His fever broke so he should be fine. Now to see if I dodged the bullet as well.

I am thankful that I stole two teabags of this from my boyfriend because one just isn’t enough for me. It is a really nice bold flavor. The bergamot is a little bit lighter than what I am used to, but I think it makes for a slightly better cup. Mostly because it doesn’t make the tea get bitter at the end.

I took a Chinese Breakfast: Certified Organic Yunnan Black Tea tea bag out of the assorted box that my boyfriend had. I love him to death because he lets me steal his tea.

I wasn’t sure if I had brewed it long enough because it brewed to this lovely golden topaz color instead of the deep brown I have been used to with my black teas. But I had brewed it for four minutes and I did remember that different teas brew up to different colors. This was the first time I had had this tea and it was good.

I drank it hot with nothing added.

It tasted light and fresh. It also tasted sweeter than the English Breakfast tea I have been drinking. I really liked that even though it was a black tea, it didn’t taste heavy like I was expecting it to. It was very, very nice and I really wish I had more.

Time to get back into tea. I find it difficult to keep up a consistent tea habit when I am at school because I don’t trust the kettle at school and I keep forgetting to bring tea bags to meals. But when I’m at home, everything is fair game.

This has been my comfort tea recently. Hot with a drop of milk.

This tea was good. Not something I would drink all the time. Better with milk than plain.

Mental note: don’t drink this brand of Earl with milk. Not pleasant.

Profile

Bio

I like Steepster, but I find that I come and go as I please. I might spend months on here and then disappear for no apparent reason. It depends on how busy my life is.

I have been moving solidly into the loose leaf tea territory lately and loving it. I have a french press I like brewing my teas in and I have all of my teas straight with no additions the first time I try it.

I like to try everything and I am starting to like everything. I love black tea, green tea, white tea, oolong tea, yerba mate,and honeybush. I’m still not the biggest fan of roobios, but that is probably because I haven’t found the right brand yet.

If you are curious about more than just my tea selection, I am on multiple sites.
