Took a break from going through samples to have something I knew I’d love. And I do. Sometimes I get super excited about a tea after one mugfull, then I order a big bag thinking I’ll want to drink it all the time. Then the big bag arrives and I make a cup and its not nearly mindblowing as it was as a sample. And I’m stuck with big bag of it. Not the case here.

I felt like playing with this one today. I added just a smidge of brown sugar. I’m really loving good old brown sugar (not the rocks, just plain brown sugar) in my teas right now, especially for caramelly or bake-y teas. Plus a splash of my kids whole milk. It tastes like creamy caramel butter. I feel bad for whatever tea I try next.

I’m at Tony’s house, really wishing I’d brought some of this tea with me. I know what you’re saying about samples vs bulk. I ordered 4oz (which is very rare for me now), & then had that thought, but I felt sure Stacy wouldn’t let us down. When the box arrived, the first thing I did was open the bag of this tea & breath in, LOL. Then I transferred the tea to an airtight tin (recycled) that was eagerly awaiting it’s companionship. It’s such a comforting tea, I may not be in there for long! Hopefully Stacy will keep this one on her menu forever!

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.
