Oh my goooooooddddddness! Thank you so much to kimquat for sending me a sample of this! Man do you know how to make a sample AIRTIGHT! And such precise steeping directions.

So I’ve mastered getting tea with me to work! Yay. I get everything ready before bed the night before (water in the kettle, leaves in my aladain tumbler) in the morning I get ready and while I’m brushing my teeth I runnnnnnn down stairs and turn the kettle on. Run back upstairs and finish up. Out the door by 3.55 am and at work by 4:) ha ha i was quite happy with myself.

anyways….this tea!! I drank it ALL day yesterday. Steep after steep after steep. And to accompany it, I went to panera bread the night before a bought a few bagels for breakfast (french toast, cinnamon crunch, and pumpkin pie) I bought their hazelnut cream cheese to accompany them, so I had the french toast bagel with hazelnut cream along with this! Amazing! Blew my mind.

I have to admit, the first steeping scared the crap out of me. It was quite overwhelming, very astringent, very tooooooo strong for me, all I tasted was bread notes and astringency. :( luckily the many many many other steepings were out of this world. Perfection actually! Cinnamon swirl bread yummy goodness. It tastes exactly like a cinnamon roll without the frosting. Ohhh myyyyy gawdddd!

Ha ha this is literally the only tea I drank yesterday I’m not joking! Allllllll day until the moment I fell asleep:) the bread taste amazed me on how spot on it was. It amazes me how tea can bring out notes like bread! Like brioche in american tea rooms brioche. Tea just amazes me! End of story!

@Stephanie have you bought any yet. I see you have tried it a few times. :)

Stephanie

I haven’t purchased any! I’d be willing to go in on some since you’re shipping me stuff anyway ;) Have you tried any of their other teas yet?

BrewTEAlly Sweet

Ha ha I have an open shopping cart right now. 2oz tin of this, I can add one for you or a 2oz bag or 4oz tin or a try me:) I’m also adding samples of white chocolate, milk chocolate and yunnan premium gold bud honey black. The swedish delight and cranapple are intruiging though.

Stephanie

You should get a sample of the Black and White. Based on your preferences for good vanilla and chocolate teas I’m sure you’ll like it! I had a sample of it once. I’ll take a 2oz bag of Cinnamon Swirl! Lemme know how much money to paypal ya including tax. Sorry, we should probably be doing this in PMs LOL

BrewTEAlly Sweet

Any samples for you or anything you’d like to try as well?

Stephanie

I looked around on their website a little bit but I just got overwhelmed, LOL…so I guess not!

BrewTEAlly Sweet

Okay :) I added black and white. :)

Hi! I am a 20 year-old from Salinas, California. I attended school in Monterey and played softball for my JC. I recently moved to San Luis Obispo, CA where I got a job as a full time baker and I LOVE my job! I have always loved to bake and cook since I was young and actually started my own cupcake business in highschool to help pay for my senior year as well as pay my way through college. Once I moved my cupcake business was put on hold, but I still love what I’m doing now. I love to work with children and hope to transfer soon to a college for child development or family psychology. I would also love to go to culinary school! I have a lot of things I want to do and am determined to do them! I am a huge tea enthusiast. I love to read about tea. Learn about tea. Make tea. Drink tea. Taste new flavors.

I am also very big on reading and always enjoy a good read. If you ever have any reccomendation never be afraid send it my way!

I am really excited to be a part of this tea community and can’t wait to trade tips, teas, recipes and treats!

PM me with any of the above and I can’t wait to meet you all!
