Okay..second steeping..

Aroma is of roasted nuts, caramel and…cocoa powder. First sip is definitely like roasted nuts—like the inside of a peanut shell, sort of dry and toasty like that—but not salty. Subsequent sips as the tea cools…tastes more peanut buttery to me. Maybe like brazil nuts. Chocolate lingers on the aftertaste.

I know this is not a flavored tea. While I enjoy flavored teas, they only aspire to be this— compared to Dawn, they are shadows…just brash imitators. Dawn shines with quiet confidence.

Guys, this is the real deal. A must try. Don’t miss it!

I’m getting really excited about my (eventual, inevitable) order from The Simple Leaf – this sounds delicious

It is! I’m amazed how this simple tea can offer so much.

My ratings are purely subjective and each note varies according to my perception and mood at the moment. So, with that said, my rating scale can be deciphered as follows:
90-100: I am in love! A must have at all times! :D
80-89: This is good. It is full-tin worthy! :))
79-70: This is okay. Glad I tried it. Might get more. :)
69-60: Meh. I’m indifferent. Neither here nor there, this is Tea Purgatory. :/
59-under: Mediocre and Sad. Really not good enough to try again. A disappointment. :(

My Misc. Personal Favorites List (because I love making lists!):
Books = The Mind Parasites by Colin Wilson, The Neverending Story by Michael Ende, Beauty by Sherri S. Tepper, The Shell Seekers by Rosamunde Pilcher, Personal Darkness by Tanith Lee.
Movies = E.T., The Princess Bride, Babette’s Feast, Enchanted April, The Age of Innocence, Death Becomes Her, GATTACA, Fight Club, The Matrix, The Others, Pride and Prejudice (2005 version), Nacho Libre :).
TV Shows = The Twilight Zone (a classic!), Star Trek TNG, Buffy the Vampire Slayer (I miss this!), Mad Men, Sherlock, Being Human.
Music? = I find myself perennially stuck in an 80’s-90’s New Wave & Alternative time warp. ;)
Quote of the Day: “There really isn’t anything; only the story appearing now—and not even that.”
