When you oversteep this, all you can taste is black tea. Which is not ALL bad, but. FYI.

Cold-brewed this and K adored it. I had the last of it this morning – yum! He likes to add sugar + lemon to his which I don’t understand but whatever :P :P

Now I have mint cold-brewing… which I loooove.

OHNOOOOOO. Last bit of this here while we watch Elementary (which is so so so good, as always)… I miss this tea already! I think it’s a necessary tea for my cupboard!

Three steeps of this today – it’s nice to have something easy you can just add hot water to with no stopping to clean out the infuser. ;)

Cavocorax

Three steeps! I’m i mpressed.

Ozli

Oh yeah, I usually go three with this one I’m super lazy and it can take it. ;)

Hmm this one doesn’t have as much vanilla creaminess as anti v-day. It’s settled, for my peace of mind. I prefer the other but this tea is not exactly a hardship. :P

drank Anti V-Day Treat by Della Terra Teas
293 tasting notes

Need caffeine that also feels like a sugar rush this morning since I’m up early for some reason and I have to get to work work work on the python course I’m taking. I love this tea a lot. It’s always a good eeeease into the day tea.

In other newsss, I bought a nice jug yesterday with the fruit/tea infusers & the ice thinger for my cold brewing. I have a mango black tea in there (Murchies and one of my least faves brewed hot, but it’s reaally nice cold. There’s a few in my collection I can’t wait to try cold. Now that I don’t have to try to pour from an old pickle jar :P or use a saucer as a lid to my french press. JUGS. SO HANDY!)

drank Nutty Enough by Naked Teas Galore
293 tasting notes

Basically anything I chose tonight was going to be not Cantaloupe Cream enough so I chose this nutty tea that I was kinda shrug about trying. But I quite liked it. A lot better than Forever Nuts and the Della Terra Honey Nut Crunch (?)because the apple is not as pronounced and it’s not oversweet (I have a Almond Marzipan rooibos that I like because it’s nuttish, but it’s also sweet so I’m rarely in the mood for it)… I like the foggy look of it, too. And Brazil nuts! Anyway, not a tea that I need in my cupboard, but a good one to try – thanks cavocorax! Gonna try for a long resteep.

eta – resteep was GREAT until I forgot it, wandering off

Preparation
Boiling 7 min, 0 sec

I love how optimistic you are with your ratings. 82 is good bu I’m not gonna buy it for you, while 82 for me means I MUST have 1 oz at all times (in an ideal world where I have lots of monies for tea)

Those little Amoda boxes I send my samples in are pretty cute eh? If you pack them thin enough they’re just $2 to ship!

Ozli

Yes! I sent that one back to you, but K mailed it so idk what the shipping turned out to be. My face went :-O when I saw it had only cost you 2$!!!

LOLOLOL I think ~80 is my “that’s good tea for drinking!” and anything under I’ll only rarely want so rrrreally, my ratings are probably just more compressed? :P But dude, I’m rethinking cupboarding this tea because I had a bit cold this morning and it was just …mmm. BUT I just sipped and automatically poured the rest out (I always taste, just to see) on morning zombie mode and I was sorta standing there at the sink going noo, nooo come back all feebly sad zombie what happened nooo good taste come baaack.

Huh. Okay. So far my verdict is “WEIRD.”

Am I doing this wrong? It tastes/smells kinda… cereal-y. Like rice puffs and vinegar. boggled

Preparation
Boiling 3 min, 15 sec
Cavocorax

Maybe try steeping it for less? I think I steeped this one for 30 seconds and it still tastes a little strong – potent stuff!

Ozli

eeeeeep okay, i will try that!

Profile

Bio

I drink a lot of tea (and coffee!) and do other things sometimes, like hug cats (3 black cats!) and homeschool a child (the Snick, Snickety Snickface the Sharkboy) and make art and draw things and watch too much television and pretend I’m not home when people knock on the door!

I LOVE A LOT OF THINGS.

My ratings probably skew high because of this, but I can’t help being optimistic, it is the natural way of things.
