drank Ceylon Star by DAVIDsTEA
522 tasting notes

In anticipation of a trip to DavidsTea today during lunch, I finished off my little bag of this one. Needless to say, I bought a whole tin of it later!! I LOVE this tea!! I’ve decided that once I LOVE a tea, that I will honor it by buying a whole tin! :) YUM!

On to my trip to DavidsTea. I had SO MUCH FUN! Probably too much fun for my own good. I had decided I wanted the new elephant perfect tea mug and the purple timolino, so I got them! Yay!! I also bought 1oz. bags of copabanana and coconut oolong to try! Btw, this is on top of the 10 new teas I recently ordered! AND the woman at the store was so nice! She said I bought so much stuff (and stuff she would buy for herself), and then she offered me a cup of tea to go, on the house! AWESOME! I was gushing with happiness!! Yay for great lunch breaks and more tea than fits in my cupboard….time to find a bigger cupboard!!

I thought my profile needed a facelift, so here we go:

My obsession with tea really started around October 2012 when I discovered DavidsTea. Before that, I had the occasional cup and enjoyed going out to afternoon tea with my mom. I was really into An Afternoon to Remember’s creme brulee tea, since they had an afternoon tea place at that time, which has since closed…so sad and I haven’t found a good replacement.

So, I kinda went nuts when I discovered both DavidsTea and Lupicia in the SF mall, and I still frequent them, though my tastes have substantially changed over time from wanting to try all the teas to being a bit more particular.

Once I discovered steepster, literally by looking up reviews of a DavidsTea tea, I was hooked! So many tea companies I never heard of and everything sounding so delicious!

I found I still love dessert teas, like flavored black teas, but I also really enjoy oolong (both green and roasted). I occasionally enjoy flavored rooibos and white teas. I’ve had a rough time with puerh, and still think it tastes like leather. Recently, after having some really amazing teas from Teavivre, I can now say I love unflavored Chinese black teas and green teas.

Favorite tea companies right now include: Teavivre, Golden Moon, Butiki, Lupicia, and DavidsTea.

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! :)
