TastyBrew sent me a surprise package! She’s so nice!! This was one of the teas she included. Thanks, TastyBrew!! Btw, she has adorable labels for her tea packaging!!

This was one tea I thought about picking up, but wasn’t having the best luck with their chocolate flavoring, so didn’t. It actually is pretty good. Much better than love in a cup or dubbele chocolade IMO. I’m not in love with it, but enjoyed it. The chocolate was a lot more to my liking :)

TastyBrew

Yeah, I like the chocolate in this one. Very roasty. I bought a small bag of this cause I crave that roasty malt flavor every so often.

TastyBrew

FYI- Super good with just a bit of raw honey and milk. Tasted just a like a whoppers.

Tealizzy

Okay, I’ll try honey in my next cup! :)

Kittenna

I agree with TastyBrew. A bit of sweetener in mine made a world of difference!

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! :)
