I thought I’d treat myself tonight to a super-nummy tea from Doulton. Mmm…mmm Iago. Besides the nom-factor I was also curious to see how this compared to the Culinary Tea’s Russian Caravan that I had the other day.

The overall feeling I have is that this tea is much more of an afternoon/evening tea. It’s mellow, subtle, nummy, and just gives you the warm fuzzies. The CT’s Russian Caravan on the other hand is a breakfast tea with the “Kapow!” for the AM wakeup. It’s bold, it says “screw you” to nuanced, but it is still very nummy. I’m having one of those “I love tea” moments. Ahhhh… TG

Proud all-around nerd, crafter, and brand-new Assistant Library Director. Give me an engrossing book and a wonderful cup of tea and I’m in heaven.

After being a barista for almost a decade it wasn’t until 2010 that I discovered loose leaf tea. Now I’m hooked.

How I use Steepster has been evolving since I joined. Yes, I use it for my personal “to buy or not to buy” info, but I’m enough of a goofball that I hope it can amuse others more often than not.

I’ve also started to become anal about my tea (times and temps). That’s surprised me. I finally realized that I should respect the leaves like I used to respect the beans. I also take my tea plain unless otherwise noted.

There’s really nothing remarkable or noteworthy of how I rate teas. I do take it a tiny further step to help clarify the muddled middle grounds for myself. TG is a definite repurchase. Anything below that is less and less likely.
