Does it count as a sipdown if I only finished off one bag because my other arrived in the mail today? If so, then SIPDOWN! If not, well, then this will never be sipped down. I love this tea. I think even more than the Laoshan Black. Yum.

ETA drinking this while eating a peanut butter cookie Lara bar. Match made in heaven. Tastes like a gourmet peanut butter cup. I gotta go buy more Lara bars. Holy snikes.

Sil

its a sipdown until the next bag is opened imo! lol

TastyBrew

Well Sil, I consider you the authority when it comes to sipdowns, so therefore, SIPDOWN!!!

whatshesaid

God this one sounds so good!

TastyBrew

I’ll shoot you a sample with your package once everything arrives!

whatshesaid

I would love that!! :)

Terri HarpLady

I’ll go with Sil’s opinion, that works for me!
This tea IS tasty!

Sil

this tea is tasty…but I need to do a comparison with LB because i sear it just tastes like LB to me

TastyBrew

It is incredibly similar, but roastier and chocolaty-er. Like LB on steroids.

Sil

Yeah I don’t get that. Lol I’ve had both…they’re virtually the same f rom what I recall…hence wanting to try them side by side. I also have old and new lb harvest to compare heh

Terri HarpLady

I think the first steeping did mostly taste like LB. It was the 2nd steep when the roastiness of the rice & the chocolate came out to play on my tastebuds a little more. Maybe I’ll drink some tomorrow ;)

Bio

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.
