Sipdown of my sample. I must get more of this! YUM YUM YUMMY! Best chai ever. Even my coworker wants me to get her some of this and she hasn’t had any yet! I’m just very persuasive. ;)

I love this too. Sooo good. I think I got like 5 steeps out of this last time by just leaving the leaves soaking for 30 minutes at a time or so.

30 minutes?

TastyBrew

Yep! I had to go do things for the kids and just kept resteeping for ridiculous periods of time! I’d add water to the pot, bring it to a boil and then cover it an turn off the heat and walk away. Did it over and over!

Tealizzy

Wow! That’s pretty neat! Good to know!

Hehe, I’ll have to try that too when I get mine! :) So excited for it to get here. I love Laoshan Black, and I love chais, so it stands to reason that I’d love a laoshan black chai too :D

Profile

Bio

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! :)
