JacquelineM — how fast did you start craving this the moment you saw me post this? ;)

Seriously, it was because of a note that JacquelineM posted about H&S’s Earl Grey that I remembered that I had a handful of samples tucked away for sometime. Well, one of those sometimes is now. We had our first nasty snowstorm of the season yesterday/today, so I felt that Florence would be very appropriate on a day like this.

I think that it’s very deserving of its praise here on Steepster, and I think others have done an excellent job of describing its many charms. So, why isn’t my rating higher? Well, you may recall that I am not a fan of chocolate. Yes, I am a freak. Ever since overdoing it on M&Ms one Easter as a child I have a very low level of chocolate tolerance. Some days I like it more than others. I think that today is a good day, but it still keeps me from utterly melting over this tea. All that said, I would seriously consider keeping a tin of this on hand — not just for me, but especially for visiting friends or family. NE

just ordered a sample of this, as so many people say good things about it. I can’t wait!

Hooray! I’ll look forward to reading your review :) I must say that I truly am surprised by how much I’m liking this even as the cup cools. I could imagine craving this someday, and that’s utterly shocking to me.

JacquelineM

Ding ding ding! I want!!!!

I used to dislike hazelnut, and I drank this tea and had such mixed emotions. Then I started craving it, then I HAD TO HAVE IT!

Rabs

Lol! @ JacquelineM: I felt a tiny bit bad posting since I knew you’d want it pretty much immediately (but not too bad since it turned out to be yumaliscious).
@ ashmanra: I think I’m exactly like you, but it’s with the chocolate for me. :)

I had a big mug of this today myself. Very cozy, comforting, and warming on a cold snowy day.

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.
