Er. Okay. So sometimes, from different windows, I can actually navigate Steepster. A second later, I can’t log in, much less log a tea.

From Day Two of the 12 Days of Christmas swap here on Steepster. Thank you TeaTiff! http://tinypic.com/r/f36deh/5

This tastes earthy again, and if I wasn’t 100% positive I was using a new cup, a fresh pot of hot water, and a teabag, I’d think this was the pu-erh that OMGsrsly gave me and that I steeped up the other day. Earthy, mildly sweet, thick, a touch of orange. I have a tiny bit left, and wonder how the tea will change when I actually steep this for the recommended time instead of the 14 minutes I left it for.

200 °F / 93 °C 8 min or more

Teaholic! Currently loving flavored blacks, greens, whites and rooibos blends, straight blacks and greens, and have a long-standing adoration for herbals/medicinals. Dessert teas top my list along with anything cocoa-y (like Laoshan Black, any of Verdant’s chai’s and Whispering Pines’ Mint Chocolate Chip). Missing living near a tea shoppe that offers a lot of options; other than DAVIDs a few blocks away, I’m buying most of my stuff online. Still, I have more than two cupboards devoted to tea, and a ridiculous amount of it!

In addition to loving tea, I’m a dating columnist, single mom, nerd, and avid knitter. I read way too much, type even more, and spend my ‘free’ time either running, swinging kettlebells, or hanging with friends.

I love tea swaps, and will gladly swap anything I have that I have enough of to share.

Allergies: Strawberries and all grains. I’m having a mild allergic reaction to both lavender and some roses in tea, and thus I’m avoiding these for now as well. I also avoid sugar and Splenda where possible.
