This tea is just rockin’ my world tonight. I got home from the aforementioned craptacular day at work and decided to finish this sample off since it looked like it mainly had the rooibosses (rooibossi?) left in the mix. Which also worried me since I’m not the biggest rooibos fan. But less caffeine was the focus this evening.

Holy mackrel is this good! It’s like all the flower power was hiding amongst those chippies. It’s tasting divine and I’m just sort of sinking down into my chair. I’m almost tempted to bump up the rating, but I’ll hold off for now. I believe that I may have to purchase more of this once I finally go off of my lockdown and get through most/all the GTC samples that I recently received. 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.
