Fisrt cup of the day. I love starting my day this way instead of coffee. It is so smooth and nutty. Watching the cornflower petals unfurl and to smell this while steeping builds the anticipation of a great cup of tea. I also love to get to the bottom of the mug for all of the yummy goodness that awaits me. Its kinda like a journey of deliciousness.

drank Monkey Picked Oolong by Pannikin

This is a good tea. Not something I would be willing to pay for often. It is smooth earthy and a little nutty. This is my favorite Oolong that I have had. I do love that it is buttery smooth. Watching the whole leaves unfurl while steeping is pretty glorius. I would be more likely to drink this more if the price was right. Don’t get me wrong this is a really nice tea but not as good as the price would suggest.

Great cup for starting my day. Not as sweet as My Morning Mate, its a little nuttier but really similar overall. I would like to know how to make these blends myself.

Brewed this even stronger today. This tea punches you in the face with how earthy it is. Not for the faint of heart.

Second cup for today. This one steeped for well over ten minutes and it has more of the mate coming through. I enjoy it even more that way. Its more nutty and dry after the longer infusion.

drank Cacao Mint Black by Teavana

This is a really interesting tea for me. The mint is the star of the show. The chocolate is more of an undertone than a starring flavor. As this tea first hits your tongue you get the chocolate and the smooth tea flavor, then the mint flavor builds and as you swallow it leaves a tingle on your tongue. This is a great black tea by itself and perfect for blending. The tingling mint always leaves me longing for more.

Profile

Bio

I just recently got into the loose tea thing. The flavor and quality sucked me in all the way. Tea has now become a major part of my lifestyle. I am really trying to experience every tea I can get my hands on.
I work for Verizon Wireless and Dish Network and live in a small town in Oklahoma. Needless to say we don’t have an abundance of resources around for loose leaf tea drinkers. I have to do most of my shopping online so any tips, hints or leads would be appreciated.
