NOM! There’s just something wonderful about starting a grey drizzly day with a fantastic smoky tea. This is the last pot of Georgia Tea Company’s smoky teas (I have enought LS for a travel mug) until I place an order ::sniffles:: TG

Preparation

I think that you and I both have the Lapsang Souchong bug. I think you read my note on my outrage that I got one without any taste at all (from The Tea Farm) but most of them are very good. Adagio has a good one and so does Leland—I don’t know if I reviewed them.

Rabs

Oh, I definitely and most delightedly have the bug. My first Lapsang Souchong was from Adagio. At the time I thought that I’d only want LSes on rare occassions since it was sooo intense. Now most mornings I reach for them first! I need to check out Leland’s.

Bio

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.

TG=Teagasm
NE=Nice Enough
M=Meh
GA=Gods-Awful
