Yum yum yum yum yum! (I’m singing this, of course). While I’m enjoying my teas today, things are tasting off, less amazing than normal. Dunno why.

Why do I oversteep my last sips of a favorite tea? Silly me. Too much tartness and apple in this incarnation, so now I’ll just have to order more… ;)

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 8 min or more 2 tsp 12 OZ / 354 ML

Well, I accidentally steeped this for over 20 minutes, so… it tastes like medicine. Pills. Yea… not going to rate it, because it’s definitely user error. Bah!

Thanks though Suziqzer, this definitely has my name all over it! :) I love me some herbal tea.

Lol.. I’ve done that too many times myself. Hope it’s better next time!

Light, lovely and fruity. I don’t know if I’ll go out of my way to get this in the future, however it’s a lovely, light blend that’s very flavorful and delicious.

Preparation

Kinda, sorta surprised I had to add this Steepster. Isn’t this a novel idea, a white chai? I’d think Steepsterites would jump on it!

Anyway. I added it, because I’m drinking it, thanks to a lovely surprise gift from Suziqzer. It’s a light, creamy blend, with a kick of spice from the red peppercorns, I believe. It’s a nice blend, a bit surprising really, as I’d never considered using a white for a chai… didn’t think the tea could hold up such bold flavors. I do like it though!

Flavors: Peppercorn

Preparation
175 °F / 79 °C 2 min, 30 sec 3 tsp 12 OZ / 354 ML

Hm. Liked this one less than I remember (loving it), however it was still gone before I realized it. I’ve got it on my wishlist in case I ever make another H&S order.

drank Premium Chai by Butiki Teas

I loved this sample so much that I ordered a whack of it, and while it’s still creamy and delicious just straight, it’s not as…. amazing? as I remember it to be. Still really, really tasty though!

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 2 min, 15 sec 2 tsp 12 OZ / 354 ML

Hm. Oversteeping = more apple, less apple crumble. Boo me. I’ll know for next time.

Oops… Over steeping happens too often for me too. Too many distractions at home!

drank Chai Spice by Verdant Tea

A lovely blend of spices to make an unusual yet very pleasant cup of chai. Interestingly, there are goji berries in this, which aren’t listed in the ingredients list here. Odd.

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 3 min, 0 sec 2 tsp 12 OZ / 354 ML

Profile

Bio

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.
