I think I’m liking the laoshan black blends even more than the straight laoshan black. It’s such a good base! I’m on a complexity roll too! I really enjoyed this one. At first, I thought, this is just laoshan black mixed with genmaicha. But as I sipped, it became a more and more comforting, well-blended cup! The first steep was like a toasty laoshan black. By the second steep, the honey notes I noted while drinking laoshan black popped out once again, and by the end of the cup it tasted like honeyed nuts! Yum!

I have recently become tea obsessed! I’ve always loved an occasional cup and my mother is a daily tea drinker, but in the last year it has become my favorite thing! Started out by having a cup of black tea in the morning. Loved going for afternoon tea with my mom! Since fully immersing myself in loose leaf tea, I have become nuts for it!

I am now exploring more and more companies, and trying to go beyond my comfort zone of flavored black teas and try more oolong, green and white teas.

My favorite teas are evolving. I love teas from DavidsTea, Lupicia, Harney and Sons, Della Terra Teas, and Butiki!
