Got my first full bag of this is the mail yesterday! I noticed a lot more blueberries, which has to be good, right? I liked it so much when TastyBrew sent me a sample, that I had to get some. I think I messed up my cup this morning, though. Forgot to put down the little whistle on my kettle, so the water was probably way too hot. Still tasted good, but not as good as before. I just ordered a variable temperature kettle (YAY!), so that should prevent those types of mistakes in the future! I also got an iced tea steeper and finally ordered Nina’s grand amour tea! I feel a little spoiled right now! ;)

I had this tea this morning too! That variable temperature kettle will be awesome. The best I’ve made this tea is at 185 for about 2.5-3 mins and then resteep for about 6 and it’s still very tasty.

That’s funny! Thanks for the temperature! I can’t wait to get my new kettle!

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! :)
