Why do I like this one so much? It has great complexity! Was trying to decide on an afternoon tea and once I smelled the dry leaves, my mouth started watering! Funny, cuz I’m not really into tart teas, but this one is really rounded out. Fully enjoyed my cup of this while finishing up work.

In other news, I just ordered more new tea!!! My third order in 4 days ;)

LOL, about the tea ordering! I’m trying to behave myself, at least for a little while, but I have found myself starting lists of teas I want from different companies, thinking I can rotate through those companies, ordering from one at a time. Otherwise, I tend to be a binge orderer.

I couldn’t help it! Plus, I’m way behind most of the folks on here, so it can’t be that bad! ;) I’ve been compiling a shopping list too. I find it so handy that I can put a tea in there that I want to remember based on a great review and then, once I have a few teas for one company, make an order!!

That’s basically the way I’m doing it!

Another profile facelift! My tastes have changed a lot from when I first discovered loose leaf tea.

I can trace my tea journey back to October 2012, when I discovered DavidsTea. Before that, I had the occasional cup and enjoyed high tea at An Afternoon to Remember, which has since closed.

I went through a period of wanting to try all the teas, and was really into flavored teas, especially dessert blacks, but my tastes have substantially changed over time.

I still enjoy the occasional flavored black or rooibos, but I’m more into unflavored black teas right now and recently, puerh. Chinese black teas are amazing…with their notes of chocolate or sweet potato, who needs a flavored tea? I had a much steeper learning curve when it came to puerh. I used to dump out cups of puerh for tasting like leather. Now, I am really enjoying them. I think it took finding good quality puerh and steeping them gong fu style to really enjoy them.

I also, on occasion, enjoy a good oolong, white, or green tea.

Favorite tea companies right now include: Mandala, Teavivre, Butiki, Golden Moon, Lupicia, and DavidsTea (for teaware mostly).

Just a note: I don’t rate my teas numerically because my iPad doesn’t like the scroll bar. Maybe someday that will change…hint hint, steepster! ;)

P.S. My profile picture is of one of my 2 cats, Holly, who is a little princess but very photogenic, and she loves boxes, including those that bring me tea! :)
