I took advantage of Yezi Tea’s free samples and ordered 3 samples of black teas. This was not one of the teas I chose but was one I really wanted to try. Luckily, Yezi teas is super generous, because in my order of only free samples, they included an additional free sample! This was super smart of them, cause my goodness, this tea is good. And I must order more. I wish I had more to experiment with. I brewed it gong fu style and each steep was different than the previous. But I’d like to try this western style too. The first steep was kind of roasty and kind of grape nuts-y, the second, a sweet dark chocolate, the third honey. The description used the word smoky, which is why i originally didn’t include it in my order, but I wouldn’t say smoky at all, roasty more like. Burnt toasty. Bet it’s super good western style.

BBBB ladies, this will be in the box next round as I’m going to order more. And probably another from them, so don’t order anything yet!

Grape nuts – what a clever call on that flavor!

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.
