I had just poured hot water over these leaves when I saw the mailman pull up way earlier than normal. And he had two packages for me (a swap from whatshesaid and samples from Nina’s Paris). I debated what to do with the tea I had literally just made. I had a whole new batch of samples to try, but this isn’t a tea you ever waste.

And I’m so glad I didn’t. This is one of my ultimate favorites. I love how roasty it is. And the right amount of chocolate. I actually think this one would be fun to experiment with various add-ins. The first of which being marshmallows. It’s already got a twinge of s’mores-ness to it with it’s roasty chocolate flavor. Add a bit of marshmallow or marshmallow root and this could be the ultimate s’mores tea…

I love tea. And I love beer. I spent my twenties thoroughly enjoying all that beer has to offer but now that I’m into my thirties and a stay at home mom of 2 little kids and 1 big kid, I spend more time enjoying tea.

I joined steepster in Feb 2013 and it’s crazy how much my tastes have changed since joining. Before, I liked cream and honey in all teas and loved mostly dessert blacks. Now I almost rarely drink them, but enjoy them from time to time. What I love more than anything are straight rich black teas, Fujian, Laoshan, Rizhao, etc… I also love pretty much any black tea that the little leaf hoppers have gotten their teeth on.

I’m still not too into the green/white/oolong varieties. I keep trying to but my tastes are evolving pretty slowly on that front.

Overall, I just enjoy tea. Something about it that just settles me.
