Travelling Tea Box!
This tea wasn’t in the database as near as I can tell so I started a new thread. The company isn’t in here either. So first and first! No steeping instructions on the website so I went for a lower temp and my usual 3 mins.
This is a light tea. There’s a bit of floral notes in this, but nothing overpowering. I don’t totally taste ‘pomegranate’ but there is a fruity taste to this tea. This has a nice light gold colouring to is as well. I’m glad a have a bit more of this to play with later. :)
So what I’ve discovered about good morning sunshine is that I love it cold brewed IF I use the left over tea from an initial hot steeping lol. This brings the intense lemon down a few notches and really makes for a nice iced brew. Pretty sure that this will be what I do anytime I make it hot!

So this isn’t a bad little tea. It’s the first gunpowder that I’ve tried and I like how the smoky flavour isn’t up in your face. I found it to be a nice black tea with a hint of smokiness at the back of the sip. Not sure if I’d pick this up as a regular in my cupboard but I would totally drink it again!

You ever have that feeling like steepster is eating your tasting notes? I’m sure i’ve had this more than 6 times(though most of my tasting notes count for twice that…even 12 seems low). Anyway sipdown for me on this one! also added some of my 50/50 caramel to this and did a sipdown for that one too! :)
Today is going to be a loooooong day. So I opted to start out with a nice session of laoshan black to kick things off. Again, this tea makes me seriously happy. I love the way it changes as i re-steep it. I hopefully have some friends coming over in a few weeks and i’m looking forward to introducing them to this tea because they’re always complaining that black teas are bitter and lackluster. :)
I’m hoping this will knock their socks off!
Oh man it’s late… Tracking this so I remember to write something tomorrow.
More of this tonight…which thankfully caffeine doesn’t really affect me cause I’m drop dead tired. I could pretty mucho to sleep right now. Got my haircut tonight..let me tell you how good THATfeels after 8 months of damage to my hair. Soooo nice!
Time to have a relaxing evening with some tea and Warcraft heh. Tomorrow is going to be a long night of testing!
Another black to keep me going today. I’m sure i’ll switch off to something else if i get a chance to have any other tea at work today but this is doing the trick. Just a bit of flavour and sweetness to wrap up my lunch :)
ooooh yeah baby! Time to have this one again since it’s been a while. I needed a nice wonderful black cup of goodness this morning so this is what i reached for. Sadly other steepsings of it will need to wait until i get some. Work just isn’t condusive for doing that. Anyway, there is a reason i picked up 4? ounces of this on my last order. it’s is wonderful! i love the malty chocolatey goodness that is this tea and the subtlties that come out as later steeps happen. mmmmmmmm!
