A tasting note from Dinosara the other day gave me the idea to mix a smoky tea with a chocolate tea. (And as I’m typing this I just realized that Dinosara sent me one of the teas I used here.) So I took two teas that I didn’t LOVE and made them better. A teaspoon of the chocolate and a Choice Russian Caravan teabag (which are actually really good for a teabag, but they are getting older.) Both of them combined make me like them more! It’s a nice smoky milky chocolate. So so good. The second cup wasn’t as marvelous, but the first one was awesome. Lesson learned: combining teas I don’t LOVE might make them better together (and think of all the flavor combinations!)

I had this exact same idea a few weeks ago and LOVED it! Mixing flavors is so fun! This is what I came up with, if you’re interested in checking it out :) http://whisperingpinestea.com/december.html

oh how funny Whispering Pines just happened to comment on one of my tasting notes… I just thought of one of your teas this morning! (Well, I do think about tea much of the time anyway!)

Whispering Pines Tea Company

Haha :) What tea was on your mind?

Tea Sipper

Manistee Moonrise mainly because I have a bit left and it was stored next to this smoky tea. And it has elderberries in it. I was thinking of elderberry teas I might have because of The Walking Dead. :D

Most of the teas listed in my cupboard are actually sample sizes. I don’t really have 2,000 ounces of tea around here! I was bored one day and found out that most of them have only one teaspoon left… maybe two. But I like keeping them in my cupboard list for reference to what I could be sipping. Usually, I write tasting notes once for each tea. I’m still drinking them, just not writing tasting notes each time!

My dislikes: hibiscus, ginger (unless in chai), charcoal type flavors

My ratings:
95-100 – Super awesome deliciousness favorites
80-95 – Also pretty delicious
65-80 – Pretty good
40-65 – Okay
1-40 – Probably won’t want to sip it again

I’m planning on being a Steepsterer as long as there IS a Steepster, so if you’re not hearing from me, that means something happened to my health… if you know what I mean. :D

Happy sipping!
