Tried another cup of this from the sample TastyBrew surprised me with. She suggested adding honey, so I did. I think it was definitely better, but unfortunately not a favorite. I’m glad I got to try it though! I can see how some get whoppers from this. Me and chocolate teas….I don’t know…we’re not the friends I wish we were!

Yup! My thoughts exactly for this!! Too much malt for me..

All the lukewarm reviews are making me nervous. Mine is sitting in a box unopened.

TastyBrew

Funny, I really like this one. But you have to really love strong roasty teas. I couldn’t drink it every day, but I probably have it about once a week.

I ended up buying 2oz because the 1oz was sold out, but I’m nervous about trying it too. I guess I could just mix it with a black tea if it ended up being too strong for later infusions…

Ah, and here I am/was worried about it tasting too much like their other chocolatey teas and/or being too sweet.

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! :)
